Fliegerabteilung WW2

If someone is described as a Soldat in a Fliegerabteilung, what is his position likely to be? I understand 'Soldat' but can only find this type of unit referred to in terms of WW1. Any help gratefully received.

Re: Fliegerabteilung WW2

Thank you. What sort of role would he carry out? Is he likely to be ground based? Or is there a possibility he held a flying role? What roles would be covered by the term Fliegerabteilung?

Ivor,

A page on Andy Mitchell's great site, using information provided by Larry de Zeng, would suggest that a Fliegerabteilung could have been a pilot training section of a Luftwaffe signals school
http://www.wiki.luftwaffedata.co.uk/...ichtenschule_4

More general information about what appears to have been the largest such school can be found below:

Kind regards,

Dan

It could also mean that he was a recruit in a Luftwaffe "Flieger Ersatz Abteilung" which the units where called before the start of the war. Here he would have received basic soldier training that prewar took about 5-6 months.
