Artur Bildziuk - Advisor
Artur is an engineer by trade.
Both of Artur’s parents served in the Polish Air Force during WWII. His formative years were spent in the company of those same Polish Airmen who contributed so much during the war and this led to his interest in the history of the Polish Air Force. Encouraged by Stanisław Skalski, Artur learnt how to fly which added more fuel to his passion on this subject.
Elected by the veterans, Artur is the Chairman of the Polish Airmen’s Association UK. An organisation run by volunteers for veterans of the Polish Air Force and their families. The Association organises social and commemorative events throughout the UK and abroad.
Artur has become firm friends with Scott and greatly admires both his initiative and his unwavering commitment to the project.
Apart from all things Air Force related, his other passion is classic cars. He has almost finished his ‘long term project’ the rebuild of a classic V8 Vantage Aston Martin and he also, regularly, works on his 1987 Silver Spirit. He says that his engineering skills were inherited from his father who was an aircraft engineer.
