Luftwaffe Aircrew Badge.

The Luftwaffe Aircrew badge or Fliegerschaftsabzeichen was instituted in 1933 and awarded to qualified members of the German Air Sports Association which was established in March 1933 to train pilots for the future German Luftwaffe.
It was the first qualification badge recognized by the Luftwaffe becoming the official Pilot/Observer Badge for the Luftwaffe on 19 January 1935. However, it was replaced by a newer Pilot/Observer Badge in 1936. For that reason, it is considered a rare badge of the Luftwaffe.
