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

The Glider team assembled in the AM

JTA appeared arring overhead

For a 16 arrival

Hayden & Brian getting ready to head off and penitrate Hawera Airspace. Haydens first mini Cross Country.

Gary advised an escort probably be a good idea so we scrambled TVG. 

I was Gary's first heavy pax (no comments from the Cheap seats or any seats for that matter) as expected it was no bother at all.

Brian looks happy about the Escort

Had a good chat with Wayne H although we couldn't get him to share his lunch no matter what we tried and we tried everything. 

We did partake in some Coffee but were told the Biscuits were off Bugger.

We couldn't decided on what we could take back to SD and hold for Ransom (well we did but the Propellor was a tad to long for SSF) we may have to take something down ourself's to bring back and hold for Ransom.
