Sejarah[sunting | sunting sumber]

Setelah akhir Perang Dunia I pemerintah Belanda memotong anggaran pertahanan dan Angkatan Darat Aviation Group hampir dibubarkan. Seperti ketegangan politik di Eropa meningkat selama akhir 1930-an, pemerintah mencoba untuk membangun kembali angkatan bersenjata lagi pada tahun 1938, tetapi ada banyak masalah, tidak sedikit kekurangan instruktur pilot, navigator dan pilot untuk menerbangkan pesawat mesin baru beberapa. Kurangnya standardisasi dan masalah pemeliharaan yang dihasilkan ditambahkan ke kompleksitas tugas pembangunan kembali
