Townsend Bombing Range (TBR) is the East Coast’s premier air-to-ground training range. It provides the nation’s aircrews access to world-class training, which is critical to maintain a strong national defense in a world of ever-changing opponents, battlegrounds, and technologies. Located in Long and McIntosh Counties in southeast, coastal Georgia, TBR is 82 miles southwest of MCAS Beaufort. It is the primary air-to-ground training range for aviation units stationed at MCAS Beaufort, home to Marine Aircraft Group 31. In addition to being an essential training asset to Marine Corps aviation units, Navy, Air Force and Air National Guard, and Army units from more than six states also train at Townsend Bombing Range and its complex of Special Use Airspace.
