Jerzy BAKUNOWICZ, Ph.D. in Engineering (born in 1977) – Head of Aviation Training Centre at Rzeszow University of Technology, a lecturer and researcher, and an airplane pilot and flight instructor. His scientific interests are related to the design and performance of aircraft, and particularly to their experimental verification during ground and flight tests. Apart from purely engineering issues, he is also interested in the history of aviation technology, and especially in the paths of its development and factors affecting it.
Until recently, every Pole associated the Polish automotive industry with small cars with Italian origin, mass-produced in southern Poland for forty years. But the contribution of Italian technical thought into Polish aviation is less known and sometimes surprising in terms of the place, time, and manner in which it has found its way to Poland. In his paper, the author presents several examples of complex and intricate ways of aviation development.
