Abstract

The present invention relates to an aircraft (100) comprising: a fuselage (101) comprising a plurality of panels (105) adapted to define an aerodynamic shape for a cockpit or a cargo hold of the aircraft (100);at least one wing (103) structurally connected to the fuselage (101) and adapted to allow flying of said aircraft (100), the wing (103) comprising a plurality of wing surfaces and at least a frame configured to support the wing surfaces; a propulsion system for the aircraft (100), comprising at least one electric motor, and batteries adapted to store electrical energy to supply the electric motor. The batteries comprise first structural batteries which constitute at least one surface (104a, 104b) of the wing surfaces, and further second structural batteries which constitute at least one panel (105) of the panels of the fuselage.
