I won't hold my breath for some all-electric aircraft. Pressurizing the cabin with an electric compressor might spend too much more energy than it would be worth bleeding from a compressor of an engine.

I don't remember the thread, but yes, I was talking about that. It was in 2007 that I lurked about it for the first time, never actually tried it. She died in 2015, and I haven't been in her former house more than 3 times since then.
