This is a list of flying aces from Poland who fought in World War I. Poland was not an independent state during the war, and Polish pilots served in several different air forces. Some of them also fought in the struggles that echoed through Europe in the aftermath of the Great War.
The table includes World War I aces who were born in or were citizens of conquered Poland. Due to dual citizenship and/or other variations in allegiance, they may also appear in other lists of aces.
