Follow instructions on Terminal.

When getting Fuel multiply your quantity by $2.50 for amount required or you will end up doing the card thing again. Example 60 Litres = $150.00

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

As with all these things we had emegency gear avilable Fire extingusihers at hand to cover any eventuality they were sitting nicely under the Cresco's wing in the shade.

Did we say it was HOT,HOT,HOT

mMaking good use of the Picnic Tables that were put in by the SDC

Mustang off again.

One thing we did learn in these Temps good to cycle your pilots out for refreshments after a certain amount of time.

You will note the canopy is right back as it was to hot to close until just before take off.

Brian & another potential Aviator in SSF.

We had the Flight Crew decked out in Orange Fluro's and everyone else in the yella/green made it easy to see who was doing what and to direct the public to if any help was needed.

Colour coding is good.

Mustang out again

Good general shot.

SSF heading out for yet another one

Interesting thing was with the Trial Flights we had decided to keep the costs at a level most people could afford. It was $30 for SSF & JPX & $60 for TVG for 15 minutres.

The result was quite spectacular as soon as 10am rolled round the guys in the Office were attacked straight away with requests for trial flights and didn't let up till just before 4pm and we had rides to do till about 5pm.

The Mustang was VERY popular (where else can you get a ride in a Mustang for $60. The real one at Ardmore is $2500 for 30 minutes out of most peoples reach BUT NOT HERE) they knew it was a replica but who cares it's a MUSTANG.

SSF & JPX were equally popular with most saying they would be back to try the Mustang out also.

Another interesting point I noted was the amount of Women that tried the Mustang out SSF also I think they out stripped the Blokes.

Our aim with these sorts of events is to make Aviation accessable to everyone and the Variety of people that tried aviation out were from the very young and everyone in between so we will endevour to keep this formula in the future.
