Hawk Sports Skydiving Club or better known as Hawk Skydive, was established in 1980 by Azlan, who was one of the 10 jumpers who pioneered civilian skydiving. Trained by the Malaysian Commandos and Australian Special Air Service back in 1978, when skydive was first introduced to the general public.
In the early stages, jumps were made at airports around the country namely in Malacca and Ipoh. However with the privatisation of these commercial airports in 1990, the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) also currently known as the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) gave us the permission to use their laterite 600 meters airstrip in Segamat, Johore, which is about 3 hours drive south of Kuala Lumpur.
In the 80's and 90's, the club has a very competitive team in Malaysia, having to compete in the World Championship in Canopy Relative Work (CRW) in Brisbane in 1980 and 1994, The World Cup in Canopy Relative Work in Anyang, China in 1992.
In 2007, the club was commissioned by the government of Malaysia to train 50 youths ranging from 18-21 years of age to jump in the North Pole which was named the Malaysian Youth North Pole Skydiving Expedition 2007. After months of intensive training, a team of 12 jumpers were selected for the historic jump that was done on 16 April 2007.
In May 2015, the club was called upon the Maldives government to train 35 of their locals with no jumping experience, both civilian and from the uniform bodies to form a skydiving team for their 50th Maldives Independence. After weeks of intensive training on the island of Addu, a team of 15 jumpers was selected to jump in the capital city of Male and at their National Stadium.
