Robert M. Stitt

About the Author PortraitRobert Stitt was born in Kent, England, and spent much of his youth plane-spotting at airports around the south-east England. Following technical training with Hawker Siddeley Aviation at Brough in Yorkshire, he spent five years managing projects among the former battlefields of the South-West Pacific where he developed a keen interest in aviation archaeology.

After moving to Canada, Robert worked in the aerial forest fire control industry where he began documenting the fascinating variety of ‘retired’ types employed in specialty aviation. In-depth articles on other rarely-covered aviation topics followed, totaling some twenty-five published works to date.

In 2014, Robert co-produced the documentary Seventy-One Years – the Loss and Discovery of Anson L7056. He is now writing the history of iconic Canadian photo survey company, Spartan Air Services.

Robert is president of a flying club and is restoring one of the Fleet 80 Canucks on which he learned to fly.

He lives with his wife in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
