Organized by the German Aviation Association and the Aero Club of Germany, the 1925 competition, a sightseeing flight around the country, May 31 to June 19, revived German motor flight after the ban imposed at the end of World War I. Covering a total distance of 5,000 kilometers, the competition, which took the form of a reliability test, served 34 cities.Due to the prohibitions on German aviation after the war, Siebel founded companies in Germany and Moscow to trade in machinery, engines and tools, then proposed to the Reich Ministry of Defense the setting up of aviation schools around Germany.
