Fighter pilot training in France

Post by SvenW » Wed Aug 25, 2004 9:22 pm

Any information about: Fluganwärter-Bataillon Monte-Rosa, St. Malo/France?

All I know about is that my grand uncle was there, but not if he was a trainee or a coach or when exactly.

Thanks.

Sven.

Hi,

Just for info :
NAA means North American Aviation.
The NAA 57 is a US training plane used by the french navy.

See the site :
http://frenchnavy.free.fr/aircraft/naa-57/naa-57.htm
I haven't found what is a NAA 63 but there is a NAA 64 ( an updated NAA 57)
I guess W34 means the Junker W34.

So long.
All we need it's a Dackel in each pocket

Bonjour,

I am studying JG 103 in France (March 1943 - March 1944).

I can say that pilot Suckrow was the student of pilot Uffz. Faber (in November-December 1943) according to the Flugbuche of this pilot

I am sorry : I can not opened your image.

Best regards

Philippe
