Can anyone please explain to me what a Fliegerhorst-Kommandantur was? What was their relation with the Kommando-Flughafenbereich?
Thanks in advance

The Fliegerhorstkommandantur was the HQ unit of an Air Force Base (Fliegerhorst). A Bereichskommando comprised several Air Force Bases (Fliegerhorste).
