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

Now at the Stratford Aero Club which I might add will be 85 years in a few years.

We have a fair bit of History around the place.

Below is The Warbirds Plaque who now has a mate as got round to putting up the Army Plaque

The big Prop Memorial to First Flight instructor

That's him below

First Women Stratford Aero Club pilot

Well he did some winning

Now  ya might remember Matt Newton flew in with his Ercoupe last weekend

Well the above is the old Man flying in a wee while back in the original

Below is the Opening of the Aerodrome in 1937

This one is showing the Swamp it used to be.

This one show's the Opening a grand affair by all accounts

One of the first licence's in NZ and Taranaki

Those who served and still are.

One of the Club Members in Action in the Pacific in WW2 and then flew home and landed the Avenger at Stratford the Heavyist plane to do so at the time.

Anyone who inherits a Sticker pops it on here a good selection

YES we are Proudly a RAANZ affiliated Club

Clubs first Aircraft

Now this is how Aviation in Summer should be with an appropriate plane

Our Trophy Cabinet and Music system

Now while having a tidy I found the Original Club Visitors book started 1953 and now back in service.

The notice board and information center

The Model we would use if training Commercial pilots which we don't anymore we do recreational only

So don't get much work these days

The ever changing Photo wall

The Bar Legendary in it's day but modern day trends does not see as much action these days.

The Propellor that landed at Stratford once upon a time attached to a Warbird  & the 747 Captain flying it failed to reconize the need to lower the Landing gear to avoid the reduced span to his Propellor

Which is way we got his 

We carry a full selection of CAA literature

This leads to the Instructor Facilities

Also Fire response capable

We also have a good selection of reading Material.

Kiwi Flyer being the best locally produced Read 

we have the CAA vector mag on hand also

The SAC state of art Operations Center 

Wayne & Craig with a then new SSF

We do unfortunately as I dare say most Clubs do have a Memorial Wall.

Below some of the past members and Aviators that have headed for the Western sky

Never forgotten.
