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

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Sat the 13th was a tad damp  with the occasional fine spell.

On arrival I found Sven (Big Chief of the Property section at the Stratford District Council) and friends enjoying some flying activity (Gary & RVH had just been up), Svens a regular comes and watches the flying most weekends.

He also advised they were going to put some picnic tables up in the Visitor parking area. Although a bit surprised they weren't there. I suspect they may arrive quick smart now. :0)

Gary & ONE arriving 

Nice Rainbow shot.

Then he's off again

Great shot of Gary & One

Into a Grey sky

Alan & Gary & I had just checked out Alan's Hangar

Alan preparing to go aviate 

Looking a tad damp

Even more damp

That fella on the Quad wasn't mucking around.

Having decided it might be a bit to Damp Alan heads back to the Hangar.

One must understand here at Stratford it is an Alpine enviroment. One make the best of any aviation & WX  oppitunities. Although one is trained to make the right judgement calls as well such as Alan has here.

All good learning experience to becoming a well rounded aviator with actual real WX experience.

Easier ways to wash the plane as well.

We shall try again Sunday.
