Aircrafts are mainly powered by carbon-based fuels such as aviation gasoline or kerosene. But with the declining of oil resources and the increasing in the hydrocarbon emissions into the atmosphere by the aircrafts, the whole world especially the aviation industry is looking for an alternative power source. Also the aviation industry looks for aircraft that are much quieter and more fuel efficient than the aircrafts which are currently in use. This paper gives a brief review on the electrical flight technology. It also highlights the advantages as well as the challenges in the electrical flight technology.
