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

Sealing round the pumps has been completed and is ready to use. Until grass grows take care when going from Grass to Seal use the 45 degree approach method.

OOP'slets try that again. The dates have been corrected below.

After a False start to work today being Monday 22nd Dec. I dropped in to see what was going down at the Aerodrome quite a bit as the day went on.

Well Wayne turned up with Gyro  Butterfly Aircraft Monarch Butterfly  (a U.S design)  ZK-YZM

He had a false start a while back so was back to try again.

The Assembly Stage

The lets get out and do it.

Couple of runs up and down RWY-34 getting used to how it handled.

Wind was dying started out as a Northerly moved round to the South end up eventually a South Easterly

Means Business

The Gyro Flight Deck.

After a bit of Lunch the wind had died enough to use RWY-27 still testing and seeing how she handles.

Lift of was made on the previous run but I missed it. A short hop.

A more determined look and he was off.

Lift Off Imminent 

There we go folks he's off.


Heading back to the Pit's passing RSR on the way back.

On returning to the Pits although keen to do some more Wayne called it a day he had achieved Flight time to pop it on the Trailer take her home check it out.

Good call as more than a few Aircraft ruined by pushing it rather than taking stock.
