More information

The precursor of DOSAAF was the OSOAVIAKhIM (ОСОАВИАХИМ, Союз обществ содействия обороне и авиационно-химическому строительству СССР, Union of Societies of Assistance to Defense and Aviation-Chemical Construction of the USSR) established on 27 January 1927 by merging the Society of Assistance to Defense (Общество Содействия Обороне (ОСО)), Society of Friends of the Air Force (Общество друзей Воздушного флота (ОДВФ)) and Society of Friends of Chemical Defense and the Chemical Industry (Общество друзей химической обороны и химической промышленности (Доброхим СССР)). 

The goal of the society was preparation of reserves for armed forces. It soon became a powerful paramilitary with its own airfields, radio clubs, parachuting towers, and firing ranges.

From 1951 to 1991 OSOAVIAKhIM carried the name DOSAAF (ДОСААФ), full name Volunteer Society for Cooperation with the Army, Aviation, and Navy (Добровольное Общество Содействия Армии, Авиации и Флоту).
