How many electric aircraft manufacturers are there ?
I would like to know which companies offer electric-powered sport aircraft, STOL or powered gliders. Not radio-controlled models, but real people-carrying craft.
I'd appreciate it if links to their homepages could be provided.
Thanks in advance

I know Sonex aircraft has one. There is also an electric twin engine ultralight. I believe there is another electric motorglider company out there but I don't remember the name.

I have seen an electric powered sailplane fly over my farm several times.
The sound is quite different. It has a whine to it, somewhat like a small turbine, but I have a couple of photos, and clearly it has a prop. The camera freezes the prop motion.
I do not know any details about it. However, it seems to me that Daily Planet did a story on this glider about a year ago, give or take. All their stories are available on line, so you should be able to find it.
