See Panstwowe Zaklady Lotnicze for pre-1945 history.

Under political reorganization in 1956, the Polish aircraft industry was revived with production of Soviet aircraft and some indigenous types. In foreign markets most Polish aircraft subsequently appeared under
PZL 104 Wilga
104 Wilga
the PZL title, such as the PZL-101 Gawron and PZL-104 Wilga utility aircraft of 1960 and 1962 respectively, the first being a development of the Yak-12. The Gawron was used extensively as an agricultural aircraft, along with the PZL-built An-2 biplane, but later purpose-built dusters and sprayers were built. Today, PZL types are produced under three separate organizations: PZL "Warszawa-Okecie" SA (q.v.), WSK "PZL-Mielec" SA (q.v.), and PZL-Swidnik SA (q.v.).
