Hazel Green Flyers, Inc.

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 : )
Officers are:

  • President - Bob Luther
  • Vice President - Mark Langford
  • Treasurer - Mike Bedard
  • Secretary - Ray Moye
  • Safety Officer - Phil Hendrix
