Poznań–Ławica Henryk Wieniawski Airport

Stacja Lotnicza Poznań (Poznań Airport Station), was established as a Prussian military airport in 2013. The original facilities were there to fortify the Army Corps based in the Poznan, but the idea of buying a plane and building an airport was created in the editorial office of a local paper known as, “Posener Tageblatt”. The initiative was supported by the authorities of the city and the province and a special committee was set up to oversee the project. The success of the project was down to the interest by the local society for novelties regarding aviation.

The official opening ceremony took place on 26th August 1913 with Kaiser Wilhelm II in attendance and a parade by the Army Corps, accompanied by a large crowd of the inhabitants of the city. The Airport area of around 300 hectares included: grass airside, barracks, workshops and three halls planned for thirty aircraft. One of them, called Poznań, was bought from the funds raised by the newspaper, Posener Tageblatt team.

At the airport, before and during World War 1, there was a school for pilots and mechanics, aircraft were repaired and aviation equipment was also stored. After the war when the region previously under the Prussian rule remained under German authority, the airport played an important role during the Wielkopolska Uprising, also known as the Greater Poland Uprising or Posnanian War.

With the outbreak of battle on 27th of December 1918, the city was taken by the Polish forces, but a German military unit stationed in Ławica posed a serious threat. So when German commanders of the military air unit refused the option of conditional surrender, the Polish decided to take over the airport by force. It began at night on 5th of January 1919 with a troop of about 350-400 insurrectionists, supported by two cannons, they conquered the airport after a twenty-minute-attack. The Polish fighters took over the airport base and also obtained valuable equipment such as thirty airworthy combat and training aircraft including spare parts. After two further attempts by the Germans to recapture Poznań-Ławica Airport was unsuccessful, the first insurrection air force unit was established and started to play a significant role in the development of Polish aviation. From the moment of acquisition, it was decided to create a civil airport.

Poznań–Ławica airport has often been confused by pilots with a nearby airbase, Poznań–Krzesiny Airbase, which also has a 2,500 m (8,200 ft) runway. The runways are at approximately the same orientation: Ławica’s is 11/29 (true heading: 108/288) and Krzesiny’s is 12/30 (true heading: 117.9/297.9). The two runways lay in a nearly straight line, with Krzesiny coming up first on approaches from the east, the ones used most often. On the other hand, the Krzesiny airbase has two runways and lies south-east from the city centre, while Poznań–Ławica lies just to the west of it.
