I`m very interested in what role pilot training impacted life expectancy for a combat pilot in WW1. Was there that big of a difference between how the allies trained vs. how the Germans and Austrians trained? If so, does anyone know of any specific differences? Also, how much of the training as far as tactics were done at the unit level? I`ve read how von Richtoften would always fly with the new men first to observe them. Finally, can anyone recommend any written works that might be of use to me in researching training methods?
