HHSC members enjoy access to a large variety of aircraft for club soaring. We own 13 aircraft (11 sailplanes, 2 tow planes) along with approximately 30 privately owned gliders. Our aircraft range from basic trainers to high performance cross-country competition aircraft.
HHSC owns and operates 3 SGS2-33’s, numbers 1, 2, and 3. We rely on them as our primary training aircraft for new students and transitioning power pilots. The 2-33’s are special since Schweizer Aircraft Corporation was located in Elmira and built these aircraft at the nearby Elmira airport.

Harris Hill operates four of the popular Schleicher ASK-21’s, numbers 6, 7, 8, and 11. The sleek all fiberglass 2 seat ASK-21 combines high performance with extremely docile flight characteristics, making it the perfect glider for all around Saturday afternoon soaring and passenger rides.

Our two Piper Pawnees are the hardest workers at Harris Hill and the mainstay of the towplane fleet. With plenty of horsepower to tow the heavier ASK-21‘s with two people, the Pawnees are the normal method of getting aloft at Harris Hill.
