  The Johnstown R/C Club was founded in 1962 and consists of 45-50 members of all ages who like to build and fly electric, control line, and gas powered radio controlled model airplanes.  Our flying field is located between Elton and Salix, PA near the Windber Country Club on Saddle Club Road.  (Check on the "Our Field" page for detailed directions).  Our monthly meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at the Richland Township Municipal Building on Schoolhouse Road, near the UPJ Campus and the Richland Township High School.  Meetings start at 7:30 pm except during the summer months when they are moved to a later time to allow for summer evening flying.  GPS co-ordinates for our field are  N 40.16.733 & W 78.45.874 and our flying fields elevation is 2250 ft.  The physical address for the field is 231 Saddle Club  Road, Windber, PA.
