Around the World with Transocean

Germany

Less than ten years after the United States had been at war with Germany, the West German airline, Lufthansa, wanted to do business with TAL. It requested Transocean to supply navigators for its new transatlantic service. TAL provided ten navigators for the first year of operation. Pilots and engineers of Lufthansa had previously been trained at the Taloa Academy of Aeronautics in Oakland.
