The Hill Hummer, also known as the Maxair Hummer was an ultralight aircraft developed in the United States in the late 1970s. An extremely minimalist design, the main structural element of the aircraft was a length of 5-inch aluminum irrigation pipe.

At one end of this pipe was a seat for a pilot, and at the other, a V-tail. Behind the pilot's seat, an aluminum truss structure supported a fabric parasol wing, which was further braced with wires to another truss element that served as a kingpost above it.

The engine was mounted pusher-wise at the rear of the wing truss, the length of the mounting to be selected by the builder to balance the weight of the pilot. The Hummer won the award for Best Workmanship at the EAA Fly-in in 1978, and was marketed as plans and in kit form by Maxair after Hill's death.

Powered by a 250cc, 2-cycle, Zenoah Z-25BI engine.  Developing 20 HP at 6500 RPM with direct mounted prop.
Engine weight including air air cleaner, propeller hub and recoil starter assembly - 50 lbs.
