Askania Variometer Segelflugzeug
Early DLV (Deutsches Luftsports Verein) Variometer Segelflugzeug.
German Air Sports Association, Askania Vertical Speed Indicator. Type Lv5r. Dated 6.9.1932.
The German Air Sports Association was an organisation set up by the Nazi Party in March 1933 to establish a uniform basis for the training of military pilots. Its chairman was Hermann Göring and its vice-chairman Ernst Röhm. It later transformed into the National Sozialistisches FliegerKorps; (NSFK.) During the early years of its existence, the NSFK conducted military aviation training in gliders and private airplanes. When Nazi Germany formed the Luftwaffe, many NSFK members transferred. As all such prior NSFK members were also Nazi Party members; this gave the new Luftwaffe a strong Nazi ideological base.
Some of the greatest Luftwaffe pilots and crews of WWII were former members of the NSFK.
