Welcome to the Hawks


Some persons have asked if the field is open.  The field is located just outside of the park gates and is open for flying.  Please keep your 6' distance from other pilots and have fun!

The April club meeting has been calceled by the club president in the interest of public safety.  The next meeting is scheduled for May 6, 2020.

Our most sincere condolences to the Dave Spradlin Family

The HAWKS currently administers a field on the City of Hamilton Waste Water Treatment Department of 17 acres and shares a 200 acre grassland set aside for wildlife and bird watching. The HAWKS have also administered several flying sites within Joyce Park and currently run our new facility (created in 2005) on Joe Nuxhall Way that boasts a 550' by 30' paved runway and taxiways.
