Aviation Faculty is a main educational and scientific unit of the NMU (National Military University) “Vasil Levski”. It teaches highly qualified aviators and other air-force personnel. The Faculty is a successor of a couple of other Bulgarian Aviation Schools. The first one was founded in 1914. After that, other Aviation military schools were founded as well, but they did not function on a regular basis due to the wars at that time and the peace contracts. In 1945 in Vrazhdebna, near Sofia, the National Air-force School was created, which was later moved in Dolna Mitropolia. The Air-force Academy was a part of “Georgi Benkovski” Military Air-force University, which in 2002, became a faculty of the National Military University “Vasil Levski”.
