THE MILAN Rastislav Štefánik Air Force Academy in Košice will be dissolved by July 2004, the daily SME reported.

The prominent institution, which, during its 30-year existence, has produced 3,800 aviation experts, including two astronauts, will be transformed into the Faculty of Aviation of the Košice Technical University.

The head of the academy, Peter Kandráč, said there were times when the academy had 2,000 students and 80 available jets.

The pilots flew 12,000 hours a year. Today, there are 550 students and one plane.
