Historical Description: The National Socialist Flyers Corps (Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps, or NSFK) was a Nazi paramilitary organization that conducted military aviation training and held sporting events. It was founded in April 1937, as a successor to the DLV. The organization and ranks in the NSFK were similar to that of the SA, and it worked together with the Hitler Youth to provide education for young people. Primarily, NSFK training utilized gliders, though private airplanes and balloons were also used. Members of the organization also built and flew model aircraft. The “winged man” organizational emblem of the NSFK featured Icarus and a Nazi swastika, and was used on everything from dress uniforms, to the sports clothing worn in competitions. As with most uniformed organizations in the Third Reich, the NSFK had a myriad of specific regalia and insignia, each with its own distinct purpose and meaning.
