For nearly 25 years Omega Pilzno’s tracks have transported thousands, if not tens of thousands of different types of products and goods. We have recently added to our experience a very unusual delivery, which clearly stands out from the standard ones in our experience.
This unusual load was a Douglas C-47 Skytrain / Dakota wreck, a model which played a great role in the aviation history of the 20th century. General Dwight Eisenhower listed “Dakota” as one of four American inventions which enabled the Allies to win the Second World War.
Every preserved plane of this kind has a great historical value, so such aircrafts are unique and are highly valuable for museums and collectors. The wreck which Omega Pilsno transported from Oława, where it was kept, to a private collector in the Sanctuary of Blessed Caroline Kózkówna in Zabawa near Tarnow has an interesting story behind. This particular Douglas C-47 Skytrain / Dakota model was produced in 1944 in the United States. The aircraft served in the American army, later in the 147th RAF squadron, and then in the Middle East. In the ’90 ‘Dak “was one of attractions of the Euro Disneyland amusement park near Paris, and then it was taken to one of the Dutch museums. The present poor condition of the aircraft is the result of being blown up for the purpose of making war scenes by a German film crew. Fortunately, a private collector from Oława rescued it from being destroyed and forgotten.
This saved aircraft could not find a proper exhibition for a long time. The main problem was financing its transport. The key moment for the plane was the cooperation of the parish in Zabawa with a donator and the decision to create a memorial site for operation Most III (Bridge III) where the same model of Dakota played a leading role. The missing element of an idea of creating an exhibition commemorating the heroic action of Home Army soldiers was delivered by Omega Pilzno free of charge.
This complicated logistic project was possible to be accomplished thanks to commitment of many people. Our company has never been afraid of challenges and has always tried to participate in interesting initiatives for a good cause. The significant importance and uniqueness of the Most III operation raised interest of professional, local and national media. This resulted in several press, radio, Internet and television publications, including Teleexpress, the most popular news program in Poland, and Onet.pl.
One of the biggest local exhibition EXPO DOM Fair in Rzeszow is a great opportunity to present the only IVECO dealer and service in Podkarpacie.
The weather did not spoil the visitors of this year building and construction fair, being rather cool and bleak, so creating a mini coffee shop in one of our vans – in one of the two models we presented on the exhibition – was a fantastic idea.
There was no reason to complain as, despite the cloudy weather, we were able to show our company to nearly 300 exhibitors of the construction, real estate, interior design and gardening sectors which IVECO offers dedicated solutions for. We also had numerous conversations about cars with interested visitors to the fair. According to the organizers, Podpromie hall was visited by several thousands of people during those three days.
Those who preferred cozier atmosphere could visit our indoor stand where our representatives were ready to present the offer and to talk about the transport needs of customers. STC is not only an authorized dealer, but also a dynamic service. That is why we talked about the whole range of options, from selecting a vehicle type to its proper operation and maintenance. If someone missed both places, he was informed about our presence by hostesses who were walking around the venue in specially prepared for this event outfits.
Taking into consideration the character of the fair we chose two IVECO models to be presented. The previously mentioned van which combined the function of the display and a coffee shop, and a well-known in the construction industry dump track. Both vehicles represented the key advantages of IVECO make: flexibility in the choice of track body, enhanced frame construction and the 3.0 engine valued for its strength and reliability.
In addition to standard promotional products, we offered the visitors the visualization of our new headquarters as our flagship investment for the current year.
We would like to thank all the people who visited our stands. If you have any further questions we invite you to visit the STC headquarters in Wola Cicha or to contact the sales representatives who will be happy to assist you in selecting your vehicle to meet your needs and expectations.
The G2A Arena Exhibition and Congress Center held the XIII edition of the The Best Airline Awards this year. The award for The Best Airline which does not operate from / to Poland was presented by Adam Godawski – the Vice President of Omega Pilzno.
However, before presenting the event itself, let us offer a reflection. People who do not know the Sub-Carpathian region very often associate it with the national borders and beautiful landscapes of Bieszczady area. In the stereotype of Poland “C class” there is no room for advanced technology, business on a global scale and innovation. And yet – as it is often the case with stereotypes –the image created is very distorted. These are the thoughts which come to mind after visiting G2A Arena Exhibition and Congress Center in Jasionka near Rzeszów.
Although we usually use more metaphorical reference when we think about a good space for business, the G2A Arena actually creates space which foster integration of different industries, development of cooperation and achievement of business synergy. Therefore it is not surprising, that the place holds the most important events in the region, especially that the Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport is located nearby. These are the reasons for choosing this location for organizing such a prestigious event near the region’s capital.
The Best Airline of the Year is a prestigious event which has been organized for 13 years. There are established categories, nominated candidates which need to apply for the statue and the Jury. Among 400 people invited there were distinguished guests including representatives of airlines and aviation institutions, parliamentarians and local government officials, representatives of airports and the business world. The event was hosted by fantastic Artur Andrus and the audience could watch and listen to great performances.
This year LOT Polish Airline definitely stood out as it won four awards. The winners were also WizzAir, Lufthansa and EmiratesAir lines. The award for best airline which does not operate from / to Poland was presented by Adam Godawski – Vice President of Omega Pilzno.
Transport sector has to be understood in a broad context as a system of integrated projects focused on the objectives of all parties involved in handling an extensive range of services. Omega Pilzno has been constantly engaging in cooperation with organizers of events integrating business ventures, building brand of the region and supporting local development. The Best Airline Gala organized by Pasażer.com portal meets all these criteria while simultaneously opens the possibility for expanding business relations and promoting our business.
This event was organized in Sub-Carpathian region for the first time and it has in our opinion a symbolic dimension. Referring to everything mentioned above, we can say with no doubts that our region is gaining recognition and becoming a more and more popular location for organizing international business initiatives. Being a partner in such events is very important for us as we can actively participate in the development of the region and build our own brand in such a positive context.
The Best Airline 2016 Gala is history now but we have gained valuable experience. Our calendar is full of more such important events. We recommend checking the “Events” section on our blog. In the anniversary year we intend to operate on many different levels and engage in a wide range of activities.
