The Team Hi-Max is not just a single plane design; it's a series of planes sharing a few common features: single place, high wing, enclosed cabin and wood & fabric construction. What do we mean by a "series of planes"? Our entire lineup of mid-wing designs is also available in the Hi-Max. Do you want a very simple ultralight powered by a 1-cylinder engine? You can build the Hi-Max to be FAR Part 103 compatible. Are you more interested in something a little fancier, with pretty curves and a little more power? We can provide a Hi-Max kit equivalent to the Sport models or the Eros. Do you prefer a 4-stroke VW-based powerplant? Then you'd love the Hi-Max version of our V-Max. 

 

What are the advantages of the Hi-Max over our mid-wing lineup? Some people love the great "look-down" visibility. The enclosed cabin is more comfortable on cold days. The high wing provides shade on hot days (whether you're flying or just need a cool place to set up a lawn chair). You have the choice of installing the standard truss landing gear or an optional spring gear. The Hi-Max is a little more stable; you can take your hand off the joystick to fold a sectional or check your i-Pad. And finally, many of us learned to fly in a Cessna, Cub or Champ; a high wing plane "just looks right".

 

The Hi-Max shares the wings, empennage and most of the fuselage parts with our mid-wing aircraft, and just like them it's fun to build and a blast to fly!
