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

14th Jan was warm with another frisky Breeze.

Now here's Ian with his new Machine in her new home for now. As we all know this is Corby Starlet ZK-ONE.

She will be spectacular when done.

We spent a morning looking her over and checking her out.

Taking a few things off for a look about.

LTH and the chaps heading West from the East.

JAU getting her final coat of Yella.

Getting busy this AM. Even Craig was in.

Kevin out for a blat in YAK 08.

Our first YAK fueling up.

Jason and Craig with Wayne and Gary getting SNG ready.

Now we had some visitors in today checking the Aerodrome out.

Here checking the SSF out.

Mum & Dad checking SSF out also.

Getting up close and personal with Kiwi.

Then it was over to the Mustang for a look as one doe's.

I think he likes it.

Making sure he's not pressing any buttons.

Then Mum had a go I suspect if I gift wrapped the Mustang they would have taken it there and then.

Of course one can't leave without the shot with the Mustang.

Kevin driving round in his Yak.

On his way to 27

They're off 

Over at Hangar 2 Alan was busy getting Fishy with the Fisherline. Excellent work didn't smell to Aquatic when he came down.

Then after that him and Gary (New) were out for some aviating in RSR.

Here we have a couple Sonerai's hanging about.

They usually travel round in packs of two now.

Gyro RTO was also in for a bit.

SNG back in.

Gary out in ZK-Mitsi mowing the numbers in the Runways for those people that fly by using the Braille method.

Hangar 1 got the treatment today and came up real nice. Here the Team hard at it.

Mean while over in the Central Plateau Ruapheu was showing herself.

JAU was still doing the drying thing after spray today. Looking fine.
