    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    These training establishments originated with a training program for Militär-Lehrlinge [military apprentices]. Accepted at about 14 or 15 years of age, these boys underwent 4 years of training as aircraft technicians or aircraft engine mechanics in aircraft manufacturing companies, with heavy involvement from the Reichsluftfahrtministerium [National Air Ministry] (RLM). Upon graduation, they had to sign up for 4 years of service with the Luftwaffe, which was extended to 12 years if they became NCOs.

    In 1938, this evolved into said Fliegertechnische Vorschulen der Luftwaffe [Aviation Technical Preparatory Schools of the Air Force]. These were now actual military installations; the students were re-designated as Militärschüler [military students].

    In a quite typical way for for the Third Reich, there were constant clashes between the RLM and the Reichsjugendführung [National Youth Leadership] (RJF), as the latter demanded full responsibility for all kinds of pre-military training to be laid into the hands of the Hitler Youth. Eventually, it was to decided to transfer the schools to HJ control in 1943, which was, however, not immediately implemented.

    In mid-1944, the schools were re-designated as Technische Vorschulen der Luftwaffe [Technical Preparatory Schools of the Air Force], the training program having long diversified into other specialities, with students now also trained as electrical mechanics, precision mechanics, machinists etc.

    In the autumn of 1944, the schools were finally transferred to the HJ, undergoing one last name change to Ausbildungsheime der Flieger-HJ [Training Homes of the Flying HJ].

    At all times, the students were members of the HJ.

    The above information came from the Luftwaffe volume of Angolia & Schlicht's Uniforms and Traditions... series (specifically, from the 1999 German edition), where the development of these training establishments is neatly described. These are older books, but still very much standard references. I, for one, use them a lot.
