Hazel Green Airport (M38) is privately owned and maintained by stockholders of the Hazel Green Flyers, Inc. It is located a few miles west of Hazel Green, Alabama, just north of Huntsville, and a few miles south of the Tennessee border. The runway was originally paved as a drag strip. It was first licensed as Chess-King Airpark on April 21, 1966.
We have a stockholders meeting once per year, and the Board of Directors meets more often. A few years ago we met in Sam's hangar, since the executive boardroom in our giant office complex is currently under renovation : )

The Hazel Green Flyers have a "pot luck" dinner the third Saturday of each month at 5:30 PM, at the airport "clubhouse" on the east end off Opp Reynolds Road.
Airport Workdays are normally on the fourth Saturday of the month, but only when an announcement is sent out a few days before. Given that attendance on workdays is not overwhelming, the following list is provided for those who'd rather help out on their schedule.
