    Commercially speaking I don't think it is feasible due to the energy density of fuel cells and batteries. The weight of the fuel and power plant don't make it practical.

    However, it may be possible on a smaller scale such as general aviation for recreational flights with substantially lower loads and range.

    Electric aircraft do currently exist on the UAV level, such as a NASA aircraft that is powered by batteries and solar panels. It is basically a flying wing.
