ROCHELLE –– In 2008 one business occupied the land near the Rochelle Municipal Airport. Today, the Rochelle airport is becoming a destination for local residents and out of town guests.

Mark Delhotal took over as manager for the airport in 2008 when one business; a charter, school and aircraft maintenance shop, was the lone location at the airport south of Rochelle.

In 2009, Rochelle Avionics was added to the airport as a full service repair facility after the initial business left.

“I think the diversity they bring to the table is going to allow it to be very successful in Rochelle,” stated Delhotal.

The municipality also added a community hanger to Kortz Field the same year.
