The company was founded in 1928 based on a decree issued by Prime Minister Józef Piłsudski.
The PZL factory floor has seen almost all planes that have ever been manufactured in Poland.
From such distinguished historical structures as PZL 11C, to PZL 37 Łoś, PZL P24, PZL 23 Karaś, to more modern models TS-8 Bies, TS 11 Iskra, PZL 104 Wilga, PZL 110 Koliber, PZL 106 Kruk, to the modern aircraft PZL 130 Orlik in consecutive versions TC I, TC II, TC II Garmin, to the most modern version: PZL 130 TC II Advanced.
In 2001, the plant was privatized and a majority stake (77%) was acquired by the Spanish company EADS CASA (currently AIRBUS).
Since that time, a number of aircraft component production programs have been launched. Currently, PZL “Warszawa-Okęcie” manufactures components and structural elements for C295 aircraft and civil Airbus aircraft, including A330.
In 2011, a fully certified Service Center for C295 aircraft was opened in the plant. In addition to Polish Air Force aircraft, it has also successfully serviced foreign aircraft for some time. The Center also provides ad hoc maintenance services directly at the unit that operates these planes.
In 2016, a clean room was opened in the factory. It is a highly specialized high-tech facility where, in absolutely clean conditions, electrical harnesses are manufactured for satellites produced by Airbus.
Today, PZL Warszawa-Okęcie, as a member of AIRBUS, designs, builds, services and operates aircraft with excellence and passion and provides top-quality engineering, maintenance and aviation services.
