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

I borrowed this from the Taranaki Gliding Club web site I am sure they won't mind


The Indian summer continued for the weekend of April 5th & 6th.  We flew 14 cadets on Saturday.  Also two launches for Sam Tullett and one for Tim in TE.
Will Hopkirk and Glyn Jackson the instructors, John Tullett the winch driver, Tim Hardwick-Smith working the launch-point and Les Sharp doing the glider retrieval. Cadets were helping with the last two tasks.  All went well.  Tyler Turpie and Glyn Jackson had the best flight with 12 minutes achieved.
For the 6th, a different crew:  Les Sharp and Peter Williams the instructors.  John Tullett and Tim the winch drivers. Dennis Green at the launch-point, Jim Finer and Peter Miller on glider retrieves.  Once again all went well, interrupted briefly by a weak-link break.  The right one installed and the launches continued. Best heights that day were 1000ft and …. Bailey with Peter Williams did 12 minutes.  Cadets pitched in, taking turns to help with various tasks.  They even found time to put up a couple of tents, adding a homely touch to things.   Glyn & Tim installed a couple of GoPro cameras which gave intriguing pictures of cadets’ reactions to the sensations of launch and flight.
All in all, a very successful weekend for the 
No 48 Squadron (Stratford) and No 8 Squadron (New Plymouth)  led by Julie Woods and Steve Muir.  The day was enjoyed by all parties.
