Default Maxair Drifter

I am looking to find an ultralight for myself and i think i like the Maxair Drifter. However im not sure if Maxair even exists any more. Or if it does do they still make ultra light Drifters? Does anyone know?

Default Mysterious Drifter?

Hello Chris,
Apparently Maxair went out of business, filed bankruptcy in August 1991. The rights to the Drifter changed hands a few times and currently are held by the Drifter Aircraft Pty Ltd. located in Queensland, Australia.

But there are used Drifters for sale, here's 2 listed recently;
