Generalleutnant Werner Panitzki (27 May 1911 in Kiel – 2 June 2000) was a German Air Force general. He was Inspector of the Air Force, the senior air force appointment, from 1962 to 1966.

On 25 August 1966, the Federal Minister of Defence, Kai-Uwe von Hassel, dismissed Panitzki, at his own request, because Panitzki in an interview had characterized the procurement of the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter fighter aircraft as a "purely political decision".
