Usually aluminum (or perhaps and aluminum alloy). Some homebuilts and a few production corporate aircraft (Beech Starship and Raytheon Premier, for example) are made either fully or partially of composite materials (carbon fibre and the like). Control surfaces are often made of composite materials even if the airframe is aluminum
