Summary/Abstract: The paper provides an account of the history of aviation industry in Poland in the communist era (1944-1989). The author analyses development barriers the sector coped with during the period in which the endeavours in the field ended both with success or in failure. The development barriers for the Polish aviation at the time had predominantly political provenance, and stemmed not only from the country's dependence on the USSR, but also from the national-level party bureaucracy. Aside from the literature on the subject, the article heavily relies on tdata from personal sources of information and recollected by the author.
