Centanary of Polish Aviation

Air Force Institute of Technology hosted a scientific and technical conference "The Centenary of Polish Aviation. Perspectives of development " Conference took place on November 22, 2018.

The aim of the conference was to analyze the current state of Polish aviation in the perspective of its 100-year history and to present possible directions of its development and modernization for the next 20-30 years.
