Re: Flugbereitschaft der RLM

"Flugbereitschaft" is an a/c-pool and service organisation of the RLM. The main intention is to provide standby air-transport (mainly personell, but also transport and medivac) for the RLM and/ or the governement. A privat air taxi, if you want.

Cool Re: Flugbereitschaft der RLM

You can find the KTB of this unit, in BA/MA RL 10/406. It covers the period 02.03-19.09.1942.

Re: Flugbereitschaft der RLM

Thanks very much for the replies. Highly informative!

Would/could the Flugbereitschaft der RLM be the unit to supply an aircraft and (personal) pilot to a high ranking Army officer for air transportation duties (like between HQ and frontline units)?

If not, who was responsible for these kind of duties within the Luftwaffe?

Re: Flugbereitschaft der RLM

Hi,

Yes, this unit could and would be used for this kind of duty, along with several others with the same partial name 'Flugbereitschaften', but also the Kurierketten etc etc

Regards,
Andreas
