The Academic Aviation Training Centre of the Silesian University of Technology (ATO POLSL) begins practical flight training for students. On the basis of the Certificate for the Approved Training Organisation No PL/ATO – 78, obtained on 25 October 2018, ATO can conduct airline pilot training - ATPL(A). Thus, the Silesian University of Technology joined a small group of universities with this type of aviation training centre available. The ceremonial start of practical air training took place on 28 June, at the Gliwice airport.

The ceremony, during which 31 students received diplomas in the aviation specialisation, was attended by the Rector of the Silesian University of Technology, Professor Arkadiusz Mężyk; President of the Upper Silesian Aviation Group, Artur Tomasik; President of the Upper Silesian Agency for Entrepreneurship and Development, Bogdan Traczyk; Director of the Gliwice Aero Club, Beata Miącz-Pałka and the Director of the Civil Aviation Personnel Education Centre of Central and Eastern Europe, Professor Jarosław Kozuba.

- This is a special day for all employees and students of the Civil Aviation Personnel Education Centre of Central and Eastern Europe, the part of which is the Academic Aviation Training Centre. It is a special day, because we start a practical pilot training. It is a subtotal of many years of hard work and efforts. For many years, the Silesian University of Technology has been placing great emphasis on training personnel for the aviation industry. This is one of the priority areas of our university's development. In 2008, we established the Civil Aviation Personnel Education Centre of Central and Eastern Europe. The license for an airplane pilot training is another certificate granted to the Centre - said the Rector of the Silesian University of Technology, Professor Arkadiusz Mężyk who, after the ceremony, took a flight over the  Gliwice airport.

ATO POLSL obtained a certificate issued by the President of the Civil Aviation Authority. It confirms that the centre meets the requirements of international and national aviation regulations on the certification of activities in civil aviation and is allowed to conduct flight training in the field of ATPL(A) licence - integrated training. ATO POLSL trains future pilots, among others, at the Gliwice airport. The individuals, who have previously obtained the PPL (A) license will be able to join the integrated airline pilot training. Full ATPL(A) licence of airline pilot can be obtained after 1,500 flight hours, taking into account the required type of flight.

ATO POLSL was established as part of the Civil Aviation Personnel Education Centre of Central and Eastern Europe.
