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 for the Operational information.

Due to the Contractor deciding to do the build at the begining of winter we have ended up with a challenging area round the pad.

With the EPIC rain we have had at SD the ground is very soft (NOTAM is out for this at present) please follow the instructions below.

Be aware the Stuck in the Mud extraction Fee is pretty steep and thats not taking into account all the laughing.

Also be aware there is a bund on edge of Pad.
This will not be an issue at present as we can't get on the Pad at the moment due ground conditions.

Below the Installation

The Terminal read the instructions.

Also Fire Extingsher pull tab for access to Extingsher.

You need to sign the book when up lifting fuel. Again Read instructions.

You need to stay inside the profile of the PAD but on the Grass at present.

Stop your Aircraft or Chopper on the Mown H only.

The hose will reach the H with plenty to spare.

If picking up fuel for your Aircraft in Jerry Cans you can park here on the Gravel only.

Do not drive onto PAD.

Looking Awesome.

Now for the MUD warnings.

The reality is this time of year for SD is WET.

A challenge but if managed right should not be an issue.

This looking back to the Seperator from the manouvering Area and as you can see you do not want to venture here.


If looking from the Gravel this is the right hand side next to the access road.

Don't even think of going there. 

Again Ditto

Ditto once more.

This corner extremely soft.

The big picture

There you have it.
