It seems that electric vehicles are on the horizon.  We are starting to see more electric and hybrid planes being presented (although not many for sale). 

I wonder if people will start going for the electric airplanes.  Maybe electric motor gliders is the way to get it started.

 Here is one example:

I was up at Oshkosh a couple of years ago, and a company did a demo with these two electric ultralights.  They performed well for what they were.  The most interesting part was how they were virtually silent!  They were show center, flying around in circles and you couldn't hear anything.  Very cool.
