The M28 short take-off and landing aircraft manufactured at PZL Mielec, has been deployed on heavy cargo ferrying missions in Canada.
At the beginning of 2019, in the Ämari base the Estonian Air Force received the first of the two C-145A aircraft (AFSOC-specific variants of the PZL Mielec M28), which were donated to Estonia as a part of the Excess Defense Articles (EDA) program.
On February 7, 2019, PZL Mielec officially handed over a third M28 short takeoff and landing aircraft to German defense training contractor PD Sicherheit.
Since 2015, M28 05 Bryza has been serving as a maritime surveillance aircraft for the Polish Military Contingent carrying out MPA missions in the Mediterranean region within the EUNAVFOR MED.
The Sikorsky / PZL Mielec M28 STOL aircraft is a twin-engine high-wing cantilever monoplane of all-metal structure with twin vertical tails and rear clamshell door.
The M28 short take-off and landing (STOL) aircraft have been intensively operated by the Polish Armed Forces for nearly three decades now. The Polish Air Force has 38 M28 aircraft at its disposal.
