The Institute of Aviation Technical Research – the today’s Institute of Aviation was created in 1st August 1926.
The history of the Institute of Aviation stretches back to the re-establishment of Poland’s national sovereignty. In December 1918, Polish authorities created the Department of Science and Technology at the Air Navigation Section of the Ministry of Military Affairs, which in 1919 was renamed to the Department of Scientific and Technical Training, based at the Royal Castle in Warsaw. Its successor was Wojskowa Centrala Badań Lotniczych, created in November 1921. It is the transformation into WCBL at the Institute of Aviation Technical Research on 1st August 1926 that is considered to be the starting date for the history of the Institute of Aviation.
