Summer 2002 (10.2)
We recently came across the article on your Web site about early
aviation training in Baku: "Biplanes
and Seaplanes: The Beginning of Aviation in Azerbaijan"
by Fuad Akhundov and Nina Fischeva (AI 4.2, Summer 1996).
Among the graduates of the Baku Naval Aviation School were also
some students of Estonian origin - Ots, Schtschepotjef, Meier,
Paul, Rotherberg, Keddis, Kuddu, Matvei and others. Are there
lists of graduates of this school available? I'm sure that there
were more Estonians who earned their wings in Azerbaijan back
in those days (1915-1917). We have written a book about the early
history of Estonian aviation and that's why we're really interested
to receive any help.
