Aviation training in Poland. 1990-2010.

In 1989, socio-economic changes took place in Poland. The President of the Republic of Poland, Lech Wałęsa, led the Russian army out of Poland, but did not liquidate the Moscow agents. There was no vetting or decommunization. The economy has been looted.

Dęblin School of the Eagles.

In 1989, the 58th Air Training and Combat Regiment was transformed into the 58th Air Training Regiment. The change had no effect on the training system, but the Regiment was no longer intended to be used in the "W" situation. The regiment was equipped with TS-11 Iskra planes, of which 66 were in stock (1991). The sister company, the 60th Air School Regiment based at the Radom Airport, had the same number of machines.

In 1991, the School of Eaglets had the following subordinate air units;

23 Air Training Squadron: home base - Dęblin-Irena, planes: 8 An-2.

47 School Helicopter Regiment: home site - Nowe Miasto nad Pilica, helicopters: 46 Mi-2.

58 Aviation School Regiment: home base - Dęblin-Irena, planes: 66 TS-11.

60 Aviation Training Regiment: home base - Radom-Sadków, planes: 66 TS-11.

61st Air Training and Combat Regiment: home base - Biała Podlaska, planes: 42 TS-11.

Social and political changes in Poland, initiated in 1989, led to the collapse of the Warsaw Pact, the departure of the Russian army from the Republic of Poland (1993) and the reduction of armaments; had to bring about changes in the Polish Army. The first changes were the liquidation of the positions of political officers, and then the renaissance of the Military Ordinariate.

Education also had to undergo necessary changes. On October 1, 1994, the school changed its name to the Air Force Academy. The main emphasis was placed on mastering modern design and technical solutions and on learning English. The study schedule was also changed. Theoretical and practical semesters were planned alternately, i.e. the first theoretical semester was followed by a semester of practical training in the air. The duration of the studies was also shortened by 6 months, and the graduates' promotions were moved from November to June.

The school took over, after the dissolved Aviation Excellence Center, conducting training courses and improving the officer staff. The importance of this task was steadily increasing and with the decreasing number of educated cadets, it became the main teaching burden.

From the moment of its establishment, WSOSP has established close cooperation with civil universities, including: Warsaw University of Technology, Rzeszów University of Technology, University of Warmia and Mazury, Lublin University of Technology, Catholic University of Lublin, Maria Curie-Skłodowska University and military universities, including the Defense Academy National, the Naval Academy, the Military University of Technology. Contacts were also established with; Ecole de l'air from France or the Aviation Academy in Kosice, Slovakia. The severance of contacts with universities in the former CCCP was also significant. Apart from changes in the School in Dęblin itself, there have been changes in the airport and school service component. The 4th Security Regiment was disbanded and the 6th Air Base was established in its place. Base as JW. 3823 began its operation on December 6, 1994. And although the basic tasks of the new unit did not change much, it was undoubtedly an ennoblement for its employees. The main tasks of the Base were to provide logistical support for the operations of units stationed within the base and to secure the operations of the 1st Aviation Training Center, which was stationed in the area of ​​the 6th Blot.

The first commander of the 6th Air Base was Colonel Dr. Andrzej Szmania. Then, in 1996, the duties of the commander were assumed by Lt. Col. Nav. Dr. Aleksander Garbacz, who commanded the unit until February 1998. His successor in the years 1998-2002 was Col. Ryszard Rybczyński. From May 2002 to 2006, the commander of the 6th Air Base was Col. Dipl. pil. Stanisław Wesołowski. In the period from August 2, 2006 to November 11, 2007. The 6th Air Base was commanded by Colonel MSc. Zbigniew Zaręba, and from November 12, 2007 to November 8, 2010, the base was commanded by Col. Nav. MSc. Bogumił Znojek.

The inheritance of the tradition of the 315th Dębliński Fighter Squadron is also the takeover by the 6th Air Base, and then the 41st Air Training Base, of some elements of its symbolism. Badge of the "fighting black rooster", whose history dates back to the 112th Fighter Squadron (fought during the September 1939 campaign).

The 6th Air Base was formally and practically subordinated to the Command of the Air Force Academy. But from 2008, when the 4th Training Aviation Wing was created, the Base fell under its command. In 2000, the 6th Air Base received its own banner, funded by the Social Committee.

In the second half of the 1980s, the Polish Army ordered a short series of PZL-130 Orlik aircraft with piston engines and with an option for a total of 25 pieces. The first PZL-130 No.005 received the AI-14 piston engine. The plane made its first flight on February 19, 1988. However, after the trials, the Ministry of National Defense decided not to accept these planes. The plane received in 1990 a Walter turboprop engine. Designation PZL-130 TM. The plane was used for liaison flights in the 23rd EL (air squadron) in Dęblin and the 45th ELD (experimental air squadron) in Modlin. The PZL-130 Orlik plane became the basic training plane at the School of Eaglets.

On March 12, 1999, the Republic of Poland joined (along with the Czech Republic and Hungary) to the NATO alliance. This fact confirmed the political direction towards the USA, towards a free world. In addition to privileges, this affiliation imposed on us obligations, including the unification of the training system. On July 1, 2004, a pragmatic law came into force, specifying new requirements for the officer cadre. Modern Lockheed (formerly General Dynamica) F-16 Jastrząb multi-role combat aircraft were also purchased. All this forced changes in the School in Dęblin. The period of studies was extended to 5 years. Cooperation has been established with the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology so that the graduates receive second-degree education and a master's degree.

Two subsequent Decisions of the Minister of National Defense: No. 105 / MON of April 22, 2002, on the reorganization of military education and No. 362 / MON of December 3, 2004, on the process of education and professional development in individual corps and personal groups, obligated the Air Force to conduct training in WSOSP and its subordinate components and to prepare for the first official position of candidates for officers from among: graduates of secondary schools (mainly the General Aviation High School) in the field of pilotage; graduates of civil universities and military academies in the following specializations: aviation (apart from pilotage, i.e. navigator, on-board equipment, flight security, aviation weapons and ground handling of NOSP aircraft), flight insurance, meteorology, in cooperation with the Air Force Training Center (in specialist training), radiolocation, radar reconnaissance and interference, anti-aircraft operations.

The arrangements included in the decisions of the Ministry of National Defense determined the organization of education of officer cadres as a two-way process. Graduates of secondary schools were educated only in the field of aviation and astronautics in the specialties of airplane pilot and helicopter pilot. In the remaining specialties, the main core of the officer cadre were university graduates (civilians) with 2nd degree (master) education and 2nd degree English language proficiency according to STANAG 6001, who were promoted to the first officer degree and appointed after appropriate training at WSOSP. for professional military service. The curriculum of the WSOSP includes the curriculum standards applicable in the field of aviation and astronautics. The system of credit points ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) was introduced to the student's performance evaluation system, which enables the exchange of students between universities.

The framework plan of the first degree studies of pilot education (7 semesters) assumed the implementation of 3,006 hours of theoretical classes at the Faculty of Aviation of the WSOSP, and the plan of the second degree studies (4 semesters) included 939 hours of theoretical classes at the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology. The implementation of the plan allowed the pilots to obtain a flight: for the pilot of the plane - 230 hours; for a helicopter pilot - 180 hours.

Although the 58th LPSzk was invariably a part of the Eagles' School, by the order of the Chief of General Staff of the Polish Army No. 083 / Org of August 9, 1999, on January 1, 2001, the 58th LPSzk was transformed into the 1st Aviation Training Center. His patron was Maj. Pil. Eugeniusz Horbaszewski. This was to ensure better efficiency in the implementation of the main task of the unit, which for years has been the flight training of cadets. The priority tasks of the 1st OSzL also included maintaining the aerobatic team in full training, constant improvement of pilot skills and training of pilots-instructors. In 2003, the 1st OSzl took over the Mi-2 helicopter squadron from the disbanded 3rd OSzL in Biała Podlaska and the key transport aircraft of the 23rd Special Aviation Squadron in Dęblin.

In the first decade of the 21st century, the School in Dęblin entered a very difficult period, which could even end with its liquidation. The contract for the F-16 Jastrząb multi-role combat aircraft also turned out to be a blow. Practically complete training of the pilots of these machines was carried out in the USA. An additional mistake was the complete abandonment of the I-22 Iryda training and combat aircraft program, and thus conducting initial training for future F-16 Jastrząb pilots also in the USA on the Northrop T-38 Talon machines. Let us remind you that in the 1970s and 80s, there were 11 universities and 4 academies in Poland. Most of them were disbanded in the 90s. Currently (2009) we have 4 military universities, including one academy.

It is worth writing a few words about the would-be successor of the PZL TS-11 Iskra, namely the PZL I-22 Iryda. There are many articles on this website about this good Polish construction. Now it should only be mentioned that the withdrawal of the PZL I-22 Iryda aircraft was only a political decision. Both a part of the military and politicians of the Masonic-liberal option led to the sale and destruction of the Polish Aviation Industry. The plane crash on January 24, 1996 was not due to a design defect. The airmen from Dęblin and the Navy pilots who were to take over these planes spoke positively about them. The twin-engine drive in the Baltic Sea was invaluable. Currently (2017), the PZL I-22 Iryda assault missiles would fly in Świdwin, which with an unguided missile hit the target more precisely than the Su-22 planes with a guided missile. And so now (2017) we are still spending funds on completely outdated, not maneuverable, too fast at low altitude Su-22 planes, painting them in the F-16 Jastrząb camouflage.

Due to general socio-political difficulties, in 2005, the former commander of the Air Force of the Republic of Poland, Brigadier General Ryszard Olszewski, proposed establishing the International Aviation Training Center on the basis of the WSOSP Eagles' School. This idea was presented at an international conference organized in Dęblin on January 25-27, 2005, attended by representatives of 12 countries. This idea was as real and feasible as possible. Especially in the organization of the Visegrad Group countries. Unfortunately, the systematic destruction of ties between the countries of the Central and Eastern European group, failure to develop joint training plans and, above all, various basic combat aircraft in these countries, led to the idea that the idea was not implemented. On the contrary, he was constantly ridiculed in the Polish-language media.

The 1 Aviation Training Center began to equip modern Polish helicopters SW-4 Puszczyk. At the same time, training on Mi-2 helicopters was continued. At that time, the Center gathered all the remaining An-2 planes in the army and continued training on this aircraft for a dozen or so months. The center continued to train with TS-11, M-28 B Bryza TD machines. It should be added that the center was still the only one to train pilots for all types of armed forces.

In the fall of 2008, the 4th Training Aviation Wing was created. While the 1st, 2nd, 3rd Wings were created by transforming the brigades, the 4th Wings were created from scratch. It is a completely new organization of school aviation in Poland.

In general, Military Schools in Poland remained at only two airports; Dęblin airport and Radom airport. Airports as military units have been organized into air bases (since 2010); 41. Training Aviation Base in Dęblin and 42. Training Aviation Base in Radom. Col. pil. dr inż. Waldemar Gołębiowski - former deputy commander of the 4th SLSz.

The task of these bases is, among others, conducting practical training in the air of cadets of the Air Force Academy in Dęblin (on the PZL-130 Orlik, TS-11 Iskra, An-2, M-28 Bryza planes and Mi-2 and SW-4 Puszczyk helicopters). and in the future on a new training aircraft) and the logistics of this training. Their task is also to keep two aerobatic teams of the Air Force ready for demonstrations - the Dęblin "Biało-Czerwony Iskier" and the Radom "Orlik".

Due to financial limitations, the School in 2008 made an attempt to recruit graduates of civil universities to the Officer's School for the 2008/2009 academic year, opening the way for them to a career, among others, as a military aircraft pilot. Group of candidates for; transport aircraft pilots were to be 8 people (20-month training), 22 helicopter pilots (20-month training), 15 aircraft navigators, 7 air traffic controllers, 15-person radiolocation (12-month training), 27 anti-aircraft missile sets, aircraft maintenance for 6 people.

Candidates (men and women) were required to; secondary school-leaving certificates, have not been punished by court, have only Polish citizenship, in the year of incorporation they are at least 18 years of age, have appropriate physical and mental capacity for professional military service, as determined in the decision of the military medical commission, will obtain the appropriate Military Aviation and Medical Commission certificate of the ability to service in the air, will submit a written commitment to perform professional military service after graduating from WSOSP, will pay a fee for the qualification procedure. In addition, there are detailed requirements related to the selected specialty.

At that time, the Faculty of Aviation was the primary faculty in the School. It has been operating as an organizational unit since the end of 1994. It was created on the basis of disassembled plants and subject cycles of that time. The facility coordinates didactic and educational activities related to the preparation of human resources in the specialties of pilotage and air navigation. He solves the problems of air navigation and the use of technology in peacetime and on the battlefield with his scientific and research work. The faculty also sets directions for scientific and research work. Appropriate staff preparation for activities within NATO structures is also introduced. The Aviation Department then had six departments; air navigation, general sciences, avionics and control systems, tactics, weapons, airframe and engine.

Another important cell in the School was the Workout of Training Devices. The Training Devices Laboratory was an organizational unit of the Aviation Faculty of the Air Force Academy of the Air Force and performed tasks related to the training of cadets and professional staff with the use of comprehensive flight simulators and other training devices in three teams: a team of flight simulators, a team of altitude and rescue training, a team of navigation training devices.

The Flight Simulator Team carried out the process of training cadets in the following areas: implementation of cadets to proper, independent preparation for flights; training of cadets on the comprehensive PZL-130 Orlik flight simulator including pre-take-off procedures, pilot tasks and emergency procedures; training of cadets on the comprehensive flight simulator of the TS-11 Iskra aircraft, including pre-take-off procedures, pilot tasks, tasks related to the use of on-board weapons and emergency procedures; trainings with pilots - instructors of the Aviation Training Centers of the Polish Air Force Academy.

The Altitude and Rescue Training Team carried out tasks related to the preparation of cadets and flying personnel in terms of altitude and rescue to perform flights, and the preparation of technical personnel of the Altitude and Rescue Service for the needs of the Polish Armed Forces Aviation. The team conducted the following theoretical classes and training in the field of high-altitude rescue: parachute jumping from aircraft; training in disembarking aircraft in hazardous situations; training in the use of altitude and rescue equipment; ditching training with the use of air rescue equipment; exercises on a catapulting simulator; training in catapulting from the ground on the UTKZ device with the use of pyrotechnics; training of flying personnel in the field of high-altitude rescue; training technical personnel for positions in the height and rescue service; training professional soldiers as parachute instructors of the altitude and rescue service.

The Team of Navigational Training Devices carried out the tasks of training air traffic controllers and guidance navigators for the needs of the Polish Armed Forces Aviation in the following areas: guidance of aircraft to air targets; guidance of aircraft to ground targets; disassembly of groups of aircraft before landing; bringing aircraft to landing; providing assistance to crews in specific in-flight situations.

WSOSP has a rich didactic, cultural and educational base. The school has 70 lecture halls, including; 4 auditoriums (910 seats: 530 + 250 + 60 + 70), 31 general lecture halls, 30 specialist classrooms, 3 specialized laboratories, 4 language laboratories, computer laboratory, Objective Flight Control laboratory, 3 flight simulators.

The school also has full-size shooting ranges with equipment for educating students and staff. The university also has a stadium with a fitness center, a tennis court complex, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a gym, 3 gyms, 9 pitches (3 for volleyball, 4 for basketball, 2 for football). There are sports sections; athletics, swimming, self-defense, OSF, volleyball, basketball, soccer, table tennis and tennis. The main teaching base of the university is located in the Dęblin garrison. Practical aviation training is carried out in subordinate centers in Dęblin and Radom.


The acquisition of the university, which took place on June 30, 2009, created opportunities for the intensification of projects in the field of investment tasks, including construction investments. In 2009, the School submitted two applications for co-financing of construction investments from the European Union funds under the Regional Operational Program of the Lubelskie Voivodeship. Thanks to the funds from the European Union and the Ministry of National Defense, in 2010, they were able to start the modernization of the Student House with space for 470 students and the Student Canteen. The cost of these two investments is over PLN 20 million. PLN, of which PLN 13,070,000.00 comes from the European Union funds. The preparatory activities undertaken in 2010 with regard to the implementation of construction investments and renovation works enabled the intensification of activities aimed at further improvement of the educational and social base. The renovation of the palace began. The building is to be an educational and administrative center with the seat of the University Rector's Office. Planned investments cost PLN 35 million. These works are to ensure that the current fire safety standards are met. In 2011, further funding was obtained for further projects. The project submitted in cooperation with the City Hall of Dęblin entitled "Revitalization of the city center of Dęblin together with the palace and park complex of the Air Force Academy" within the Operational Program of the Lubelskie Voivodeship was highly appreciated. In total, the project received funding in the amount of PLN 10 million. PLN, of which part of the project implemented by the WSOSP received co-financing of about 2 million. zloty. For the revitalization of the palace and park complex, along with the investments already in progress, the university will incur expenditures from its own resources in the amount of approximately PLN 8,500,000.00.

The development of the university, its educational, social and living base is a significant contribution to the development of the City of Dęblin and the region. The ambition of the university authorities is that not only students and university employees, but also the community of the City and the surrounding area can use the sports and cultural and educational facilities of the university.

In 2009, the "Eaglet School" in Dęblin was enriched with the newly created FTO Academic Aviation Training Center. The culmination of these efforts was on December 21, 2009, by the Head of the Certification and Supervision Inspectorate of the Civil Aviation Authority, Mr. Tomasz Pietrzak, the certificate for AOSL. This document confirms that the quality of aviation training at the Center is carried out in accordance with international aviation regulations regulating aviation training. It was the first step towards granting a civil pilot license to students of the Air Force Academy.

The school faced huge changes. They were related to the introduction of a new law adopted by the Polish Parliament. What was the law supposed to change? Due to the decreasing number of trained military aviators, it was supposed to open the gates for training civil aviators. Secondly, it was to be merged with the Military Institute of Aviation Medicine in Warsaw. As a result, it would become the strongest aviation education center in Poland. When the new law was taking shape, all the deputies were in favor. The direction of changes was also supported by the Senate and the Ministry of National Defense. The entire community of Dęblin was "for". In addition to aviators, the university would also educate; air traffic controllers, doctors specializing in aviation medicine and others. The university would be open to foreign students with basic English as the language of instruction. Recruitment was to start in the fall of 2011.

The problem, however, is that in 2011, the President of the Republic of Poland, Bronisław Komorowski, vetoed the law on the creation of the Aviation Academy, and the government of Prime Minister Donald Tusk terminated the program of acquiring modern training and combat aircraft, which he himself initiated in 2010. Announced in August 2011, the veto of President Bronisław Komorowski was supported by the PO (civic platform - liberals and freemasonry), which itself developed the law. Veto also supported the SLD (People's Democratic Alliance - Communists). They were in favor of adopting the law; PiS (Law and Justice - national-right), PJN (Poland Is Most Important - a branch of PiS) and PSL (Polish People's Party). The argumentation of President Bronisław Komorowski was unfortunately lackluster, and what was worse, it was not the actual state of affairs. He said that Poland has more officer schools than, for example, Germany, France or the United Kingdom (!), That it is bringing the Dęblin university to the civilian market, which is not sure (?) And wanted to veto a reflection on the reform of the entire military education (? ). Earlier he made it clear that the Republic of Poland with 100,000 army did not need such a university (?). The matter was simpler than it might seem. After the Smolensk coup, the dormant structures of the Ruthenian intelligence have revived in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and are gaining more and more influence. President Bronisław Komorowski himself proposed as his advisor to General Wojciech Jaruzelski, a communist criminal who introduced Martial Law in Poland. There has been a reset in relations with the Kremlin and, at the same time, a retreat from the US. During this period, everything was aimed at liquidating the School.

The Engineering and Aviation Training Center, which was established at the beginning of 2009 and deals with training soldiers in SIL specialties, is also awaiting changes. After the integration of both NCO schools of the Air Force - in Dęblin and Koszalin - it is planned to establish such a school within the CSIL structure.

The structure of the WSOSP School (Air Force Academy) was as follows; Staff, Military Academy, Aviation High School, Junior Specialist School, Vocational Training Course, Professional Soldier Candidates Course, Reserve Training Course, 41 (6) Air Base, 1. Aviation Training Center in Dęblin (planes; TS-11 Iskra, M-28 Bryza, An-2 and helicopters; Mi-2, W-3, SW-4), 2. Aviation Training Center in Radom (PZL-130 Orlik planes), 1. Radom Airport Headquarters, Garrison Club in Dęblin, Garrison Club in Radom.


41 Air Training Base (JW. 4929) was established on July 1, 2010. It consisted of two units, the 1st Aviation Training Center and the 6th Aviation Base. Col. pil. dr inż. Waldemar Gołębiowski. Due to the reorganization of the Air Force, consisting in gathering units in the form of large bases, the 6th Air Base was disbanded by December 31, 2010 and became the base for the formation of the 41st Training Aviation Base in Dęblin.

41 BLSz took over the glorious traditions of the capital of Polish Wings. The 58th Air Training and Combat Regiment (later transformed into the 1st Aviation Training Center) is the continuation of the memory of the 315th Dębliński Fighter Squadron established during the Second World War in Great Britain.

On this occasion, on December 14, 2010, at 12.00, a solemn collection took place in front of the Monument to the Heroic Aviators of the Dęblin School of Eaglets. The soldiers of the 1st Aviation Training Center and the 6th Air Base solemnly said goodbye to their banners. The celebrations on the square in front of the "Heroic Aviators of the Dęblin School of Eaglets" monument were preceded by a Holy Mass in the Garrison Church dedicated to Our Lady of Loreto, which was celebrated by Fr. Col. Tadeusz BIENIEK, Mgr. The celebrations were attended, among others, by Acting Commander of the 4th School Aviation Wing, Col. Dipl. pil. Lesław DUBAJ, the last Commander of the 6th Air Base, Colonel Navigator. MSc. Bogumił ZNOJEK and the 1st Aviation Training Center Lt. Col. Dipl. pil. Roman MENDREK, Commander of the 41st Air Training Base, Col. pil. dr inż. Waldemar GOŁĘBIOWSKI, Deputy Rector of WSOSP Col. pil. Dr. Marek BYLINKA, Mayor of the City of Dęblin Stanisław WŁODARCZYK, representatives of the Police, former and present soldiers and employees of the 1st Aviation Training Center and the 6th Air Base, soldiers from the Dęblin Garrison, veteran organizations and residents of Dęblin. One of the last highlights of the ceremony was laying wreaths in front of the "Monument to the Heroes of the Aviators of the Dęblin School of Eaglets". The ceremony ended with a parade of sub-units.

Dęblin Aviation High School for them. F. Żwirki and S. Wigury. 2002 year.

The reform of the education system (introduction of lower secondary schools) resulted in a change in the structure of the General Aviation Secondary School (from the 2003/2004 school year, the enrollment of students in the first grades was reduced, a three-year cycle of education was introduced and the implementation of extended curricula in selected subjects). During the transformation period, the School underwent a comprehensive inspection by the Board of Education in Lublin, obtaining a high evaluation of the work.

The Aviation General Secondary School functioned as a three-year general secondary school with an extended curriculum: mathematics, physics, English and information technology. In addition to reliable general knowledge, OLL students acquired theoretical and practical aviation knowledge as part of the curriculum for the subject "Outline of aviation news" and aviation training (parachute, glider, airplane) organized during the school year and holidays.
