History of the 13th Transport Aviation Squadron.

In 1999, the Republic of Poland was admitted to the membership of NATO. It was an important event because we returned to the group of free nations with a clearly defined military policy. New commitments and new challenges. This accession had a particularly strong impact on the organization and military structures.

After many years of service, the 13th Transport Aviation Regiment was disbanded on December 31, 2000, under the Order of the Minister of National Defense No. PF 24 of October 3, 2000, and on January 1, 2001, the 13th Transport Aviation Squadron and 8 Air Base.
