Electra (aircraft company)

Headquartered in northern Virginia, USA, Electra is building a hybrid-electric short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) aircraft that requires almost no runway, opening up a range of interesting flight capabilities bridging the gap between VTOLs and conventional planes. Full scale prototypes are being flight-tested, with over US$8 billion on the future books thanks to more than 2,000 pre-orders.
