The Mini-MAX family was originally produced by TEAM Incorporated (Tennessee Engineering and Manufacturing) of Bradyville, Tennessee. The company was eventually bankrupted by a lawsuit and production passed to Ison Aircraft also of Bradyville, Tennessee and then to JDT Mini-MAX of Nappanee, Indiana. The Mini-MAX name stands for MINImum cost, MAXimum fun.
The company was renamed Team Mini-Max in 2012 and moved to Niles, Michigan.
The Hi-MAX was originally produced by TEAM Incorporated of Bradyville, Tennessee. After that company was bankrupted by a lawsuit production passed to Ison Aircraft also of Bradyville, Tennessee and next to JDT Mini-MAX of Nappanee, Indiana. The company was renamed Team Mini-Max in 2012 and moved to Niles, Michigan.
The Hi-MAX was developed from the mid-winged Mini-MAX family of single seat kit aircraft and it shares many similar features with the earlier design.
The Hi-MAX is predominantly constructed from wood truss with plywood gussets and covered with doped aircraft fabric. The windshield is Lexan and the side windows are removable for warm weather operations. The aircraft features a short-span wing of only 25 ft (7.6 m) and a fiberglass engine cowling. The wing and horizontal stabilizer are both strut-braced, the tail with struts above the horizontal tail surface to the fin.
The aircraft has conventional landing gear, with wheel pants as an option. The company claims that a builder can complete the aircraft in 350400 hours from the kit.
The aircraft was originally intended to meet the requirements of the US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles category, including that category's maximum 254 lb (115 kg) empty weight. It was only able to achieve that low empty weight with the 28 hp (21 kW) Rotax 277, which provided marginal performance. The standard specified engine today is the 40 hp (30 kW) Rotax 447 which results in a 328 lb (149 kg) empty weight and places the aircraft in the US Experimental - Amateur-built category.
