Flying to Flight Deck

Located at the Rochelle Municipal Airport (KRPJ), The Flight Deck Bar & Grill makes for a great destination to fly in and grab the “$100 hamburger”. We are located in Chicagoland Skydiving Center‘s facilities just east of the T-hangars towards the approach end of runway 25. Pilots can park on the main ramp and use the sidewalk located on the south side of the airport that runs along the T-hangars. When flying in you can always check to see if our jump planes are up on CTAF 122.97. If we’re not on that frequency, we’ll be on 121.0 talking to Rockford Approach. They provide radar coverage for us. When you land at the airport and have parked, please proceed towards the airport main building and take the walkway down to the Flight Deck and enter through the main entrance. Please do NOT walk down the taxiway. For current aviation weather conditions check out: awos.flightdeckbar.com
