The Svazarm was a copy of the Soviet DOSAAF paramilitary group. The activities the Svazarm provided were extremely diverse, ranging from medical training to dog training. Dog lovers would be instructed in the training and breeding of dogs suitable for military purposes, especially German Shepherds. Shortwave radio operation was another popular activity, and was also useful for creating future radio operators in the army. A more specialized branch of the Svazarm, based at Kosice, trained pilots for the air force. Training included at least twenty flight hours of glider training and forty hours of basic training on motorized aeroplanes, as well as the necessary aviation theory. There were also sections for model airplanes and gliding (formally DOSLET), motor sport section (motorcycles and cars) and various shooting sports (including rifle and pistol).
