    I'm not trying to be dense here, but the concept of an "electrical aircraft" brings old movie serials to mind. Do you mean an RC airplane that uses electric motors?

    "Electronic aircraft" is a bit of a stretch, too. Are you referring to fly-by-wire controls?

    The correct term, I believe, is avionics. You might have more relevant results by searching that keyword instead.

    If you get a chance you should try and get hold of the Jeppesen books which cover, amongst many aircraft-specific subjects, the topic of avionics in quite some detail. I survived on these things when I was an apprentice.
