Location

Heavenbound field is located at 8878 Harmony Church Rd. Johnstown, OH 43031,  about four miles north east of Johnstown. Heavenbound field is registered as a private airfield, but may not appear on the chart.  The airstrip is 900′ almost level sod, and runs directly East and West. It is in the middle of two crop fields giving it no obstacles at either end of the runway for a quarter of a mile. It is plenty for any Ultralight, as well as most Light Sport and some General Aviation aircraft. Challenger taking off 1 Everyone is welcome to land here, but keep in mind that it is a private strip, and you will be landing at your own risk. I cannot guarantee the safety of the airstrip for obvious liability reasons. As pilot in command, you will have to make that call.  Hours of Operation: Normal hours are 8 am to 5pm Monday through Friday, and I am around most Saturdays as well.  I try hard to avoid doing any work on Sundays, but occasionally will schedule a pick up, drop off, or flight on a Sunday if necessary.  I can also schedule evenings if needed to fit your schedule.  I try to be flexible.  Because I am often working alone, please call ahead to make sure I will be here when you come.  I might be flying or running an errand.

Heavenbound on ChartPlease see the link above to see it marked on the chart. As you can see, if you find Johnstown, and fly North Northeast, about three miles, you will be right over me. There are high tension power lines about a half mile north of the field, if you are flying north and cross those, you went too far. Also you will see a huge chicken farm with many sites of green and white pole barns, ponds, irrigation circles, and a big feed mill with six grain bins. I am on the east side of their land. Probably the easiest way to find me is to go to the chicken farm feed mill which can be seen for 10-15 miles on a clear day, and fly south a little less than a mile, you will cross the power lines, then go east about a 1 1/2 miles, and you will fly right down the runway. Just stay about 1/2 mile south of the power lines and you can’t miss it. There is a site of chicken barns on the west end of the runway about 1/2 mile out.
