The history of Polish „wings” has often proved the courage, bravery and intelligence of its pilots. Similar features of personality were presented by Capt. pil. Franciszek Żwirko and engineer Stanisław Wigura – winners of International Tourist Aircraft Competition Challenge in 1932. Honouring their virtues, we celebrate Polish Aviation Day and relive this fascinating event again and again.

     Most Polish Army units are under subordination of Polish Armed Forces General Command. From the perspective of my position in Polish Army I can see how difficult and responsible the service of Polish airmen really is. I also recognise the numerous tasks they are obliged to do for other associated  units, whether in times of war, threats, military conflicts or at times of peace. These are the men who rescue survivors at the Baltic Sea, as well as the heroes that bring hope for life for injured people, performing medical actions. There is a tremendous need for their abilities and experience.

 

     I truly admire their passion and engagement and send my best wishes for health, every success and job satisfaction. I also wish luck to all military pilots, navigators, technical and supportive personnel, the National Defence Department staff and fans of the white and red rhombus.

 

GENERAL COMMANDER

OF POLISH ARMED FORCES
