Pike County Airport (ICAO: KPBXFAA LID: PBX), also known as Hatcher Field, is a public-use airport in Pike County, Kentucky, United States. It is owned by the Pike County Regional Airport Board and located six nautical miles (11 km) northwest of the central business district of Pikeville, Kentucky.[1] This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned PBX by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[3]
