Stewart Keith-Jopp

Stewart Keith-Jopp 1891 – 1956
Flight Captain

Keith-Jopp was a veteran pilot of the First World War. He lost an arm and an eye during the conflict meaning he was classified as unfit for service with the Royal Air Force in the Second World War.

Despite his injuries, he was eligible to join the ATA as a pilot and served with the organisation until it was disbanded in 1945.

‘He somehow got to Upavon and stormed a vacant Harvard. Neither commands nor protests could remove him. He continually plugged his claim that little was known to the RAF of disability flying and that he would demonstrate its safety’

An account of Keith-Jopp’s flight test by fellow pilot ‘Joe’ Ellam in Brief Glory: the story of the Air Transport Auxiliary
