Mielec Airport Poland
Mielec (64 000 inhabitants) located in a very densely populated western part of Podkarpacie and eastern Małopolska and Świętokrzyskie (an agglomeration Tarnobrzeg- Sandomierz- Stalowa Wola of approx. 200 000 inhabitants, 30 kilometers to the north, town of Tarnów, 120 thousand inhabitants, 50 kilometres to the west), has a former military and industrial airport managed by the company PZL Cargo, that during the renovation of the runway of Reszów airport in December 2004 was intended to be used as a replacement for Rzeszów runway, but it lacked the necessary modern navigation instruments except for some outdated system (now it offers APV- I instrumental approach). Experts estimated that it could handle even large aircraft. Its location offers a chance to serve the parts of Świętokrzyskie and Małoposlska regions, that are otherwise not covered by other airports.
