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.
In the early stages, jumps weere 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), gave us the permission to use their gravel 600 meters airstrip in Segamat, Johore, which is about 3 hours leisure drive south of Kuala Lumpur.
Due to the high cost of rental and limitation of jump aircraft as well as strict restriction by the DCA, which allow jumps to be conducted on weekends only, we start students on static-line jumps, then progressing to freefall.
Thousand of skydivers, local and foreigners has been trained by our three experience instructors who between them
has a total of more than 12000 jumps.
In the 80's and 90's, the club has a very respected formation team in Malaysia, having 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 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 gruelling months of intensive training, a team of 12 jumpers were finally selected for the historic jump that was done on the 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 of 15 jumpers for their 50th Maldives Independence. After weeks of intensive training on the island of Addu, a team of 15 jumpers were selected to jump in the tiny capital of Male at midnight on the 31st July 2015, into the 3000 seats National Stadium.
