I have a personal interest in General Aviation so I have decided to include a section about aviation in Poland on Poland Travel Guide, as there are many people in Polska who have a keen interest in this fascinating subject.
General Aviation (GA), by that I mean small and the many different types of flying machines from hot air balloons to small jets and everything in between. There are microlights, sailplanes (gliders), single engined or multi engined aircraft, those that take off from water (amphibious), those that you strap a motor to your back and are sucked into the air dangling from a bit of cloth known as paragliders.
But this section is not just about GA but all types of aviation in Poland, including airports and companies connected with flying vehicles.

The Polish Aviation Museum (Polish: Muzeum Lotnictwa Polskiego w Krakowie) is a large museum preserving and exhibiting aircraft, engines and other items of importance to the world's aviation heritage based in Kraków. It is located at the site of the no-longer functional Kraków-Rakowice-Czyżyny Airport. This airfield, established by Austria-Hungary in 1912, was one of the oldest in the world.
