Welcome to the Soaring Club of Tasmania (aka Gliding Tasmania). You have decided to join a group of people who enjoy the silent form of unassisted flight. We operate in a similar way to the many other gliding clubs around Australia, with much voluntary enthusiasm to enable our sport.
By now you may have met many of the regulars at Tunbridge. If you find yourself without a familiar face in sight, don’t hesitate, ask for the duty pilot or the duty instructor. They will inform you of what is happening on the day.
Most information about the club can be found on our website including contact numbers and our banking details.
All Family Members are required to hold GFA Family Membership as well as joining Gliding Tasmania. This can be purchased at no cost online through the GFA.
Family Membership is available to family members of current flying members. “Family” as defined by the GFA Board from time to time, provides social membership privileges, BBL cover when working as a volunteer, and can assist with club activities. Family Memberships have no voting rights.
Members are encouraged to engage with our Facebook page. It is a good place to share ideas, photos, and news items.
S.C.O.T is incorporated under the Association Incorporation Act (1964). All Members are liable for the sum of $10 should the club fail to meet its debts and have to wind up the operation.
Our governing manuals (Constitution & Rules of the Soaring Club of Tasmania, Soaring Club of Tasmania Inc. Operations Manual, Manual of Standard Procedures (MOSP), and Safety Management System) are available for reading in the clubhouse or through links on our website (not light reading though).
