The Koliber (Hummingbird) is a permit assembled improvement of the Socata Rallye.

The Rallye was still in creation when PZL-Okecie procured a permit to manufacture and create the Rallye 100st in Poland. The model Koliber was controlled by a 87kw (116hp) PZLF (Franklin) four barrel motor (Poland had prior bought the outline and creation rights to Franklin motors) and flew on April 18 1978.

Starting generation Kolibers emphasized the 86kw (116hp) motor, later flying machine an all the more influential 95kw (125hp) Franklin motor. Franklin fueled variants of the Koliber were the Series I, the introductory creation model, with 10 constructed and first flight happening in May 1979; the Series II produced for Polish air clubs which was equipped for restricted aerobatics (25 fabricated); and the enhanced Series III (45 manufactured). Franklin controlled Koliber generation stopped in 1988.

The Textron Lycoming O-320 fueled Koliber 150 first flew in September 1988. The 150a (Koliber II in the USA) was produced for fare and was allowed US FAR Part 23 accreditation in ahead of schedule 1994. As per the sort's US and Asia Pacific merchant Cadmus, this was the first occasion when that a four spot altered undercarriage light flying machine had been completely certificated in the USA in over 10 years. The principal Koliber 150a conveyance was made to a US client in mid 1994, while Koliber 150s have been conveyed to various European nations.

The PZL-111 Koliber 235 Senior is an all the more compelling, higher execution advancement, fueled by a 175kw (235hp) Textron Lycoming O-540. It first flew in September 1995.

The most recent model is the 120kw (160hp) O-320-D2a controlled Koliber 160a.
