Micro Aviation NZ
From 1983, Micro Aviation was based at Te Kowhai Airfield, Limmer Road, RD8, Hamilton, New Zealand.
Following death of proprietor/designer Max Clear in 2011, Micro was taken over by Colin Smith's Croydon Aircraft Company and moved to Mandeville in late 2012. The Micro Aviation Bantam support work has been set up as separate subsidiary company called Micro Aviation NZ 2012 Ltd.
Address is now 1552 Waimea Highway, RD6, Gore, New Zealand and at Mandeville Airfield

There were agencies with Micro Aviation UK and Micro Aviation Europe based in Netherlands, but these no longer operate.

Micro Aviation South Africa
This is a successful major dealership based at Nelspruit, which took the majority of the production of Bantams from about 2003.
These were shipped as kits without being flown in NZ, and were assembled at Nelspruit.
Following cessation of the Bantam production in 2012 and an increase in the legal weight limit of the ultralight/microlight category in several countries, the design was re-worked and strengthened by Micro SA as the B22 Bat Hawk with gross weight increased to 540 kg.
They are built at Nelspruit. Initially sub-assemblies were supplied from Mandeville in NZ.
Micro SA also took on an agency for CAMit engines, but following CAMit's bankruptcy in 2016 they now install Rotex.

Bat Hawk China
This is the trading name of the Panjin Company at Laoning
It is Micro SA's agency in China, which has sold a number of Bat Hawks.
