Follow instructions on Terminal.

When getting Fuel multiply your quantity by $2.40 for amount required or you will end up doing the card thing again. Example 60 Litres = $145.00

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

Got out to the Aero Club at a reasonable time today Sat 10th after work.

Brian had been out in SWJ round the mountain and was heading to Hawera for a tootle about so tagged along.

Thats a BIG Cowl and a BIG Prop

Taxing out for RWY-27

John in JPX just landed.

Gary & RVH taxing for RWY-27

Brian with his ICEMAN look going on....

Gary approaching from the Port Quarter

Nice shot of RVH & Gary who was flying un-naturally (read as slow) to stay with us.

Looking South heading Hawera it was SUPER SMOOTH

Looking EAST into Tiger Country

Panel of SWJ

A smiley Brian must be having far to much fun........

Short Finals RWY-20 Hawera

Just crossing SHY-3 and the Railroad

Coming over the Hedge


The girls soaking up some late afternoon sun.

Tell ya what SWJ is a sweet lil machine quite impressed

The Hawera Aero Clubs new Deck for lounging about and talking about planes and stuff

Gary getting ready to roll.

See through fuel tanks SWJ very handy. Bit off putting when the right one goes down and the left one goes up. Left is main feed tank to hopper tank.

Gary outa Hawera on RWY-20 SD bound

Looking back to the Club house and RWYs at Hawera

The Mountain with a bit of Cloud tracking SD

Overhead SD and no those aren't the Club swimming pools check out he Cowshed just yonder. Yes thats what they are. We don't get hardly any thing from them either.

Base for RWY-16 (or as I call it the Wellington Approach)

Finals 16

Mid Finals 16

Over the Hedge ....


Gary just in we thought he had landed already

New kid on the Block is Turbine Fletcher ZK-EME with a slick new paint job looks fast just sitting there.

Now the reason Gary had stayed up was he noticed he was on 999 hob hours and he wasn't coming down till it turned 1000 which didn't take long. Way to go Gary & RVH thats a lot of flying

Alan was out in SSF

The Training panel observing Alan with a Cold one as Gary shouted for his great acheivment 

Time for a cold one Alan......
