    Default Luftwaffe service records

    I was wondering if Luftwaffe service records exist? If so, where would they be located?
    The pilot in question was Czech I believe.

    I would suggest that they may possibly be in the Bundesarchiv in Freiburg. They do not have a search facility there and do not speak English, though there are several local English speaking researchers who may be able to look up for you.

    Service records – in general – are not at Bundesarchiv, but are held by Deutsche Dienststelle (aka WASt - Wehrmachtsauskunftstelle) in Berlin. You should however be aware that as a result of the pervasive growth of EC privacy and data protection regulation – and WASt’s seemingly perverse interpretation of it – it is actually harder to get anything useful from WASt than it was perhaps 10 years ago.
