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
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
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 fined $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 clearance,
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.
