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

Friday the 20th Jan was nice and warm with big puffy clouds about.

A NZ Aviation Legend passed through Stratford Aerodrome today.

Mr Bruce Aitken and his Co-Pilot (FLT CMNDR) Janet were in today for a visit and look about.

Bruce has written a book about his life in aviation from gthe AG years and his Stunt Flying here and in the U.S.
Should be a good read.

As you do one tries the Mustang out.
