I hope you enjoy these historical and fascinating photographs of German Luftwaffe pilots and the Helferinnen of World War Two. There were NO women aviators in Germany.  The Luftwaffe Helferinnen were auxiliaries as in WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) in the UK.  They provided support in everything from communications to maintenance but, like the WAAF, they did not fly. There were "celebrity" German pilots like Hanna Reitsch, Melita v. Stauffenberg (sister-in-law to the Hitler-assassin on July 20th) and a few others who were already  pilots before the Nazis came to power.  But there was no comparable program for training or utilizing women as pilots.  There were no German female pilots in uniform. 

When you click on any small photograph on this page, a window will appear that allows you to view the photo of the WWll Luftwaffe and/or Helferinnen in a larger format.  Also, in the window that appears, copyright information is noted and details about the aviation photograph if available.

For your convenience the WW2 German aviation photographs are grouped into two sections:
