Tunbridge Tier is one of the highest-managed launches in Tasmania, and consequently one of the best launches for XC flight. In light conditions, thermals are just going through the launch early in the day. The area could be really thermic, good wing control and decision-making are imperative. This is not a soaring site. New PG5 should contact a SO/SSO before flying there.

An agreement with the land manager is in place for this launch. It is required to be a THPA member to fly this site. Please visit the thpa.org.au website for full information.
