It's very hard to say hwo was most effective air force in WW2
But I vote Luftwaffe> the best pilots and fighter planes (in my opinion)
...and do not forget the AAR with his pilots.

The Finnish Ilmavoimat is among the best, at least they performed incredible deeds against an enemy with an overwhelming superiority (in numbers). And for most of the time, they've done that with obsolete aircraft especially during the Winter War. Of course, the quality of the pilot training was first class among the Finns, but still... they used aircraft (take the example of the Brewster 239, for instance) that everybody else thought of as inferior to their advantage, exploiting all their resources in a very professional way. Pity that V.L., the local, State-owned aircraft industry only managed to design and build an capable indigenous fighter when all the fighting was over and after the armistice with the Russians... their radial-engined Myrsky was mediocre at best, but the Pyörremyrsky was actually a very good fighter, but remained at the prototype stage only.
