Two aircrafts for the Silesian University of Technology

The activity of our university in the aviation industry is gaining momentum. On Thursday, 11 July, at the Gliwice airport, a solemn hand over of two aircrafts took place. The event was accompanied by a working briefing of students - future pilots, led by the Rector, Professor Arkadiusz Mężyk.


The machines handed over to the Silesian University of Technology are the Aero AT-3 - a Polish production of a two-seat training and tourist planes, certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in the VLA category (Very Light Aircraft). The range of the aircraft is about 1,300 km,  the cruising speed is approximately 200 km/h.


The ceremony of receiving the aircrafts took place in the presence of students of the air course and Rector of the Silesian University of Technology, Professor Arkadiusz Mężyk, who presented the university's plans for the preparation of professional pilots and mechanics:
“We are doing our best to introduce a full range of professional civil aviation-related proposals directed to graduates of this course – currently, we can offer the following professions: a pilot, a mechanic, a navigator. However, in the future, we’re also planning  to offer such professional perspectives as an air traffic controller or professionals who work in securing the airports. We already have agreements with companies and branch institutes signed in this respect. There will be even more proposals- Rector Mężyk added.


The Gliwice airport is rapidly developing. The infrastructure is in a state of deep modernization. Gliwice will become an airport for the General Aviation category, serving the Silesian agglomeration, adapted to large air traffic in the field of business and amateur flights. The Silesian University of Technology, builds two hangars to store their aircrafts, but also as a back-up for aviation mechanics trained at the university, who will use special non-flying  machines during their training.
