Luftwaffe fighter training units in the airdrome of Märkisch-Friedland June 1944

Please,

What was/were the Luftwaffe fighter training unit(s) settled in the airdrome of Märkisch-Friedland (Third Reich at the time, today Mirosławiec in North-West Poland) in June 1944?

It seems: Stab/JGr West + 3./ and 4./JGr West ?
Can we confirm?
Other(s) unit(s)?

Thank you.

Phil.
