Trainers

History

The Luftwaffe training policies had to be underhanded since the Treaty of Versailles prevented Germany from having an airforce, German pilots had to be trained in secret. At the start civil aviation schools inside Germany were used, But only light training Aircraft could be used in order to maintain the charade that the trainees were going to fly with civil airlines such as Lufthansa. To train its pilots on the latest combat aircraft, Germany courted the help of its future enemy, Russia. A secret training airfield was established at Lipetsk in 1924 and operated for around 9 years using mostly Russian, but also some German, training aircraft before being shot down 1933.
