Chicago/Rockford International Airport (RFD)

Blackhawk Flying Club is based at Chicago/Rockford International Airport (RFD). The club rents two T-hangers 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 auditorium, located on west side of the airport.

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-Hanger Operating Procedures are developed by the Airport Authority.

Club aircraft are refueled after each flight by Emery at the hanger, or North American at their building.

VOR checkpoint is located on the airport.
