This badge was worn by members of the Deutschen Luftsportverband (DVLA). This was one of the feeder groups for the future Luftwaffe. Since Germany was not authorized to have a military they used the civilian groups to train their future pilots. This is not an actual Luftwaffe badge since it pre-dated the Luftwaffe's formation. It is shown here for its historical lineage to the Luftwaffe.
