About Institute

The history, passion, commitment, knowledge and experience of our employees cannot be closed in few words.

It is a history of 98 years of research, creation of new visions and lively discussions from which the spirit of the entire Polish aviation emerges.

I invite you to get familiar with the Institute, as the workplace for outstanding researchers, scientists and engineers, as well as the opportunities offered by our research centers.

I believe that through cooperation with the Łukasiewicz– Institute of Aviation, your institutions will increase their potential on the market and will succeed.
