Join us in remembering Stefania Cecylia Wojtulanis-Karpińska, born on this day in 1912.
In January 1, 1941 Stefania was appointed as the first foreigner (along with Anna Leska) to the British ATA (Air Transport Auxiliary), which provided airplanes from factories to the airports of individual units and damaged machines to repair factories or scrap yards.
 
Flights were carried out without radio communication, navigation maps, often in bad weather, and it also required learning about the piloting of various types of aircraft supplied, including twin-engine bombers like Vickers Wellington.
 
She was married to a pilot, colonel Stanisław Karpiński.
