General Stanisław Targosz (23 July 1948, Jaroszów, Poland – 4 August 2013, Grodzisk Mazowiecki, Poland) was a Polish general who was the commanding officer of the Polish Air Force.[1][2]

On 15 August 2000, Polish Army Day, he was promoted by president Aleksander Kwaśniewski, to the rank of generał brygady (brigadier general) and soon afterwards Targosz was transferred to the NATO CAOC-1 command in Denmark.[3]

On 18 November 2003, Targosz was transferred back to Warsaw, where he assumed the post of deputy chief of Air Operations Centre and, since 8 March 2004, the commander of that centre. On 15 August of that year he was promoted to the rank of generał dywizji (Major General). Finally, on 3 April 2005, he was promoted to the rank of Generał broni (three-star general) and became the commanding officer of the entire Polish Air Force[1] until 19 April 2007. He was succeeded by General Andrzej Błasik.[4]
