The Germans wanted to challenge the Versailles Treaty´s banning them back to raise armies. However, Germans in revenge and need to resurface, rejuvenated their creative and technological capabilities in order to build the most powerful air force in the beginning of World War II: The Luftwaffe.
German pilots had to train in private aviation schools circles that trained future pilots of Luft Hansa, the company's civil aviation at the time. In order to train pilots for modern dogfights, Germany had to go to his future enemy, the Soviet Union, Which was also isolated from Europe by its communist ideology.
