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

Great to see a New Zealand Aircraft Manafacturer acheive a milestone like this 

Pacific Aerospace celebrates 100th P750 XSTOL

Hamilton's Pacific Aerospace has celebrated its 

100th P750 XSTOL utility aircraft with ZK-

KNS (c/n 200) rolled in the company's colours 

and adorned with special 100th aircraft markings. 

ZK-KNS was first registered on 10 November 

2015 and was noted soon after all white. It 

departed Hamilton for Kerikeri, Lord Howe 

Island and the Gold Coast 08 February and it 

flew onto Charleville and Alice Springs the 

following day before continuing to Broome 10 

February. It has since flown onto Bali and from 

there it is expected the aircraft will make its

 way to the Singapore Air Show. 

Thanks to Delticman for the following:

Pacific Aerospace Ltd and the former company

, Pacific Aerospace Corporation, have now 

manufactured one hundred of these highly

 versatile utility aircraft and sold them all

 over the world. Designed initially as a 

skydiving platform, PAC also had in mind an all 

purpose aircraft for general charter,

 passenger, survey and as an aerial ag aircraft.

The PAC 750XL was first flown on 5 September 

2001 with the first production aircraft flying 

two years later on 12 September 2003. From 

that time there have been highs and lows in 

production, mainly caused by the fluctuations 

in the global market. Never daunted by this,

 both PAC and PAL have looked for sales in 

other markets. 

Back in 2005, one aircraft, 121 ZK-JBD was 

taken off the production line and robbed of 

various parts to speed up deliveries on other 

orders. What remained of 121 eventually re-

joined the line and was completed as another 

aircraft. ZK-JBD was then cancelled.

PAL are certainly on track to build another 


aircraft and we certainly look forward to

 another milestone from the Hamilton factory. 

I borrowd this from MRC Aviation Web Site
