German pilot unit assignment and training.

hello everyone,

Just a quick couple questions, many of the German aces originally flew two-seaters, so when they wanted to transfer to fly single-seaters could they request a specific Jasta to be transferred to or were they randomly assigned to one to fill that units casualties? Either way, were the rules for these transfers 'set in stone' or more flexible, say by a 'case by case' basis?

Before they had joined a Jasta from flying two-seaters, did they undergo some sort of specific single-seat fighter training somewhere, or were they simply trained in single-seaters with their Jasta unit after they arrived, in the actual fighter they would fly in combat?
