ATT cap insignia similar to DLV
I'm new here on baord and I like it very much.
My name is Bert Hartmann and I'm the owner of the website www.luftarchiv.de
Besides my interest in aircraft aviation history I'm also a collector of aviation stuff (DLV, NSFK, Lufthansa a.s.o.) insignia and awards.
On attach a misery for me, what does AAT means. I do also have the pin to this one made by Hofstätter Bonn. (the DLV badge is just to compare)
Someone a clue ?

of course it means AAT typo error ;-(
Welcome to the Forum , some nice items you have there , looking forward to seeing more of your collection .
You can edit your post after posting to fix spelling etc . I'm sure someone here can help you with your question .
Both are Weimar--the DLV is often mistaken for the TR organization (ie,Deutsche Luftsport Verband) when in actuality it is for the Deutsche Luftfahrt Verband.
I have only seen one other of the AAT wreaths, and they are still a mystery as of yet.
is it something to do with technical institution for aerodynamics? So perhaps a test pilot or engineer?
I have never seen one before but the badge certainly looks to be German produced.
ATA? Aerodynamik technischeanstalt
Here is one below that recently sold here along with the lapel pin: MÜTZENABZEICHEN DEUTSCHER LUFTFAHRT-VERBAND (DLV), gld.gest. Kranz u. Chiffre, aufgel. Tombak-Adl
All the best
this is what I got now:
AAT means Alter Adler Traditionsverband and was formed in 1927 out of old flyers before 1914. the AAT still exits as Traditionswahrer
