Open for Business: Flight Deck Bar & Grill


A new business in Rochelle offers a stomach-raising experience, and one to fill it up after.

Flight Deck Bar & Grill is now open for business.

The restaurant overlooks the drop zone and runway at Rochelle Municipal Airport, creating a new social aspect to the Chicagoland Skydiving Center. It includes a new restaurant, bar, retail store, team rooms, and much more.

Patrons can enjoy a meal and a cocktail while watching skydivers, and skydivers can take a moment to relax after their adrenaline-rush.

"After their jump they don't want to just get back in their car and drive back to the city," President of Flight Deck Bar & Grill Douglas Smith said. "They want to sit down and have a bite to eat and watch the video on the TVs here in the bar and enjoy a cold beer. That's where the whole concept came out, let's give these people something else to add to their experience."
