|German Defense Minister General Werner von Blomberg decided that the importance of aviation was such that it should no longer be subordinate to the German Army and transferred the army's Department of Military Aviation to the Ministry of Aviation. This is often considered the birth of the Luftwaffe. The Ministry at this time consisted of two large departments: the military Luftschutzamt (LA) and the civilian Allgemeines Luftamt (LB). Erhard Milch, the former head of Deutsche Luft Hansa, was placed in direct control of the LA, in his function as State Secretary for Aviation.|
