LARKS was formed in 1968 as a hobby club dedicated to the advancement of model aviation and the promotion and enjoyment of the hobby/sport of flying radio controlled (R/C) model aircraft. The founding "Charter" members of LARKS are: Ned Barnes, John Embry, Ron Hicken, Charlie Staton, Dick VanDyke, and Jim VanDyke. Approximately 50-60 members make up the LARKS family. The Lake Area Radio Kontrol Society has been a Louisiana corporation since 1976.

         LARKS owns it own miniature airport, Hinch Field, which is situated on approximately four acres of land in Carlyss, LA. Hinch Field, one of the finest R/C flying sites on the Gulf Coast, is located of Louisiana Highway 108 and Murl Ellender Road, west of Southland Airport, which is located about seven miles south of Sulphur, LA. The easiest way to find us is to enter 'Larksfield Rd' into your map app. LARKS has been flying at this beautiful Field since 1972. There are signs on highway 108 and Murl Ellender Road directing traffic to Hinch Field. Our airport is open to the public during flying times. The regular "Club" day to fly is Sunday afternoon, weather permitting. However, there may be members flying any day of the week. LARKS also holds fly-in's and airshows at various times of the year to promote fellowship and model aviation. During our airshows, we have a program whereby any member of the public will be given the opportunity to fly a "basic trainer" R/C model airplane.

          Southwest Louisiana has been the site of four AMA Nationals (NATS), hosted by LARKS. The NATS were held here in 1974, 1975, 1978 and 1986. The NATS is a competitive event involving all of model aviation and attracts participants from around the world.
