The 31st Tactical Air Base is the largest military unit of Polish Air Force and the base of F-16 fighters.
The unit was set up in 2008 as a result of the fusion of three previous units: 31st Air Base, 3rd Tactical Squadron and 6th Tactical Squadron. The unit operates two squadrons of F-16 C/D fighters (16 planes each) and two Mi-2 utility helicopters. Currently it operates F-16 fighters only.
The Gastop Group has equiped the base with access control systems.
