Vegan substitute for egg white for fluffy pancakes

I am making vegan pancakes. Milk is easy to substitute, but egg, especially white is quite tricky. I read that flax seeds or chia seeds gel (seeds soaked in water for sometime and form gel-like texture) can be the most common substitution, so I tried chia seeds gel. Problem is that this is only a good binding agent, doesn't make the batter fluffy and light as the egg white should. I have searched online for a while, yet to find satisfying answer....Please help!

Try the liquid that you drain from a can of chick peas. It takes longer to whip to a foam than egg whites, but it actually does whip to a foam (use an electric beater). Try it -- chick pea water -- really.

I second the aquafaba suggestion, the chickpea liquid works superbly.
