Follow instructions on Terminal.

When getting Fuel multiply your quantity by $2.60 for amount required or you will end up doing the card thing again. Example 60 Litres = $156.00

Please sign book in box.

Also if wanting a receipt do this pretty much after hose returned to holder.

When Fueling be careful of Splash back. It's brand new and pumps pretty quick.


I have seen people not winding the hose up when finished. If you do this consistantly I will be speaking to you as I can see you 24/7 (recorded) you will be paying for any damage incured. This facility is owned by the Stratford Aero Club Sport Flyers and not by any Fuel Company.

Treat it with respect it deserves or lose it.


Remember no Landing Fee's and uncontrolled Airspace.

Thanks for choosing SD (Stratford) as your Fueling stop

This here young fella from Japan Makoto dropped by so spent some time showing him what real Aircraft are like. He seemed rather impressed by it all. Looking at doing instructor rating tried NPAC they told him to go to Wanganui strange but true..............
I had a call from Wayne Harrison CFI at New Plymouth Aero Club regarding my comments above. He advised had talked with Makoto re instructor rating but advised they had just completed an instructor course and needed a Minimum of 4 pupils to do another. He advised didn't have the quota as yet to start another course. The Wanganui thing may have been a langauge thing as Wayne advised didn't tell hiom to go there.
Let it not be said I don't gve both sides of the story.
Wayne also said possibly on the look out for Cessna 152 replacement all very interesting. They tried a Tecnam but decided to light of construction fer flying training. The Cessna Skycatcher be to long wait and expensive (in the hundreds of thousands NZ) they are considering the Jabiru as they have them on line at Tauranga and being composite less hassles with corrision being so close to the sea. The other thing is you can get a custom Cockpit fit to suit your requirements usually now. Another option maybe the LSA version of the Foxcom Terrier 200 http://www.foxcon.com/home.html just some thoughts. Really the Cessna 152 and Tomahawks are getting passed it now especially with the new technology around today. The cost of doing up the panels etc would be more than the aircraft are worth.
Just thinking out loud here......
Also the power of the wind the last couple days. Spotted this about half way down York Road where I live.
