Hamilton Field (FAA LID: 1K3) was formerly a public-use airport located two nautical miles (4 km) east of the central business district of Derby, a city in Sedgwick County, Kansas, United States. The land has been subdivided for residential use, and is no longer an operating airport. It was privately owned by Hamilton Land Group LLC.[1]
