History:

Established in 1937, the airport has a rich history as one of Michigan’s earliest airports.  It has served as an airmail stop, passenger service, and as a military pilot training airport during WW II with pilots being housed in the community building on the current fairgrounds. It once was the premier business airport in Holland where many companies would base their corporate plane. Most corporate planes are now located at the West Michigan Regional Airport.  Although with direct access to companies located on the north side, we still see some business traffic.

While times have changed, the airport continues to be very popular and many indicators show HLM becoming more of a “destination” airport.  Many visitors come to enjoy a weekend or a day on the lake shore, or as a convenient way to access their boat at our local marinas.  We offer a courtesy car, tent camping area and free bicycles, although many will bring their bikes with them in their plane.
