Chicago/Rockford Airport

Blackhawk Flying Club is based at Chicago/Rockford International Airport (RFD). The club rents two T-hangars on the northeast corner of the airport, B2 and B3. Due to airport security procedures, members must have a gate key to enter the security gate. Monthly business meetings are held in the pilot’s lounge, located next to B12 in Building B of the T-hangars.

Rockford Airport is a Class D airport with Stage III Service (TRSA), in which ATC provides radar vectoring and separation on a full time basis for all IFR aircraft and participating VFR aircraft.

T-Hangar Operating Procedures are developed by the Airport Authority.

Club aircraft are refueled after each flight by Emery at the hanger.

VOR checkpoint is located on the airport.
