The Heron Gliding Club operates from RNAS Yeovilton near Yeovil in Somerset. It is a service club (Royal Navy) but we also have some civilian members.


The club has a fleet of three gliders. These are two SZD-50-3 Puchacz two seat gliders which are used for training and a Grob Astir CS77 single seater. We also operate a Falke motor glider.


We launch the gliders by aerotow using the Falke, and by autotow using a 5.0 litre Ford pickup truck specially modified for the purpose. 


RNAS Yeovilton (HMS Heron) is located near Ilchester, just north of Yeovil, Somerset.
