Owners at Hicks Airfield are required to agree to restrictions and pay
association dues intended to maintain safety, porperty values, and provide
for maintenance on the airport. The complete list of restrictions can be
found in the Covenants, Conditions, & Restrictions (CCRs) availabe in their
entirety within the "Owners Link" on this website.
The most common issues are:
1. The airport has a 15 mph speed limit to increase safety
between aircraft and automobiles.
2. Aircraft have the right of way at all times! If you are in an
auto, pull over. For wingtip clearance, aircraft should remain
on the centerline of the taxiway.
3. Unattended parking on or within 15 feet of a taxiway edge (30
feet from the centerline) is prohibited. This exists so that aircraft
with 35 foot or greater wingspan can maneuver safely to and
from the runway. In general, outside parking is very limited as
most owners use almost all of the available space in their hangar.
4. Outside storage is prohibited. This includes trailers, autos,
and just about anything that is not part of the hangar. Also,
their is no city provided regular trash service on the airfield.
These services have to be arranged with private services and
there are limitations on where dumpsters and trash bins can be
5. Due to limitations with the septic systems, there are restrictions
on daily water usage. Residences are prohibited in some areas
and not recommended in others. Providing for your own septic
system is recommended if you plan on using more than 40 gallons
of water per day.
6. In general, commercial operations that bring heavy trucks onto
the airfield is discouraged. The taxiway infrastructure was not
designed or intended for heavy vehicle use. It is difficult to
maneuver large trucks in some areas and there is little or no
room for loading or unloading without blocking the taxiways.
7. Grass must be kept mowed at all times.
Violations are typically $250 per incident and billed to the member that
owns the property after a warning has been issued. Owners are ultimately
responsible for keeping their tenants and visitors in compliance with the
Typical Hangar Construction
Hangar design must be approved by HAPA to maintain consistency, as well
as ensuring safety for aviation operations (i.e. height limitations, taxiway
The building must have a hangar door to qualify as a "hangar" and must be
designed for normal, safe parking of an aircraft. Most hangars have a steel
construction (no brick or outside wood framing) and are 18 to 25 feet tall.
The average hangar door size is 40' wide by 16' high, using a bi-fold lifting
mechanism. Concrete foundations are required.
