The Soaring Club of Tasmania (Gliding Tasmania), is moving.


Woodbury airfield is now closed.

We will be restarting operations at the nearby Tunbridge airfield in October 2019.

Updates will be posted here or follow our Facebook page for further details.

Due to changes in agriculture at the Woodbury gliding airfield, the Soaring Club of Tasmania is required to move premises by the end of 2018.

In the last few months, the committee has been working tirelessly on moving the club forward and trying to find an appropriate alternate airfield and we have kindly been allowed to continue operations at the nearby Tunbridge Airfield.

As we are unlikely to secure any grants for a hangar, we will be fundraising and be asking for tax-deductible donations to be made as soon as possible to the Australian Sports Foundation to help with the hanger and relocation expenses.

Any donations will be greatly received and are tax deductible when processed through the Australian Sports Foundation. We need your help this financial year so we can get the move underway. If anyone would like to Donate or provide some help with relocation or would like further information, please contact Stephanie Hey on mobile: 0408 535 744

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to help cover expenses. 


$42,701 raised from 13 donations so far
