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

Sealing round the pumps has been completed and is ready to use. Until grass grows take care when going from Grass to Seal use the 45 degree approach method.

Sunday 6th November is UGH. Best Wind gust today on WX STN 34 knots. Man did it Rain.

Same as before !!! CAUTION on all RWY's.

RWY-27 from threshold to Intersection most viable.

It is drying out but with this heavy rain today and in to Monday good be a tad clingy.

They have mowed the place so should be a tad easier to a rise from the SOD.

Now for all you Young/Senior moments people have there is a new peice of Tech to take note of in SSF.

The Pre-Take Off checklist which was applied to SSF this Arvo.

Study it carefully. If it's a bit Techo talk to ya instructor.

Expect a short test on your observation skills every time you fly now. 

Your Application of said Checks no doubt will be obsevred with interest.

Probbaly the difference between a slap round the Ear or a Pat on the back.....:0)

The over view of said checklist

Have you polished your club Trainer lately.....
