It is largely dedicated to people who worked for the development of Mielec aviation factory in the years of centrally planned economy, dominated politically and economically by the Soviet system. The authors of this publication – Janusz Chojecki, an employee of the Export Department and Józef Oleksiak, a designer of aircraft – have contributed significantly to the sale of more than 700 agricultural Dromader aircraft to about 20 countries around the world. The airplanes still fly there today.
