In military service, the Wilga 35P was used as liaison, recovery and light observation platforms between 1983 and 1989. Often used by the Polish Air Force and Border Guard in border patrol missions and as a training platform. Later the aircraft was used by the national airline of Poland as a trainer before it suffered some damage and was brought to the United States for repair.
Cory Robin purchased the aircraft in June 2011 and began the restoration work.
The WilgaBeast has been modified and fitted with a much more powerful Russian M-14P radial engine.
The aircraft remains incomplete and during the winter of 2012/2013 will enter the shop for complete skin restoration to it’s original military paint scheme.
