Not to be confused with Inspector of Fighters or General der Flieger.

Inspector of Combat Flight (German language: Inspekteur der Kampfflieger) was not a rank but a leading position within the High Command of the German Luftwaffe (Oberkommando der Luftwaffe) in Nazi Germany. The inspector was responsible for the readiness, training and tactics of the German bomber force. It was not an operational command. The senior commander position of this unit was renamed to General of Combat Flight (General der Kampfflieger) in 1942.
