The Air Force is a branch of the armed forces intended mainly to defend the country’s airspace. They operate as part of the national air defence system, which is integrated with the alliance system and appropriate European civil and military systems. The Air Force, which uses the latest flight, missile and radar equipment, is comprised of:
- Flight units,
- Air-defence units,
- Radio-technical units.
Those serving in the Air Force can obtain flight skills for new aircraft, both combat and transport as well as helicopters. People who are interested in electronics can learn how to use the latest generation radar equipment and advanced electronic warfare devices. For people interested in missile technology, the Air Force offers service in anti-aircraft units.
The Air Force serves both at home and abroad, including participation in the defence of the airspace of the Baltic states as part of the Air Policing mission. Pilots of transport aircraft such as the CASA-295M supply Polish soldiers in Afghanistan. On the other hand, the pilots of helicopters and aircraft of the special air transport unit carry VIPs within the country and beyond (e.g. to the USA and South America).
