Corruption in Polish aviation?

The Ministry of Infrastructure has started an inspection of the Civil Aviation Office in connection with an investigation into corruption.

On Tuesday, the Central Anticorruption Bureau detained six employees of the Civil Aviation Office – members of the Aviation Board of Examiners and a lecturer. Those detained are suspected of taking bribes in return for giving credits at a pilot licence exam.

The investigation into the case started after a training company Aviation Asset Management had filed a notice of an offence at the Warsaw Prosecutor’s Office.
