Although not hailed as one of the best Great War fighters, the Pfalz D.IIIa deserves some credit as a steady aircraft, dangerous to opponents when flown by skilled pilots. As a design of the company from the Kingdom of Bavaria, the Bavarian Jagdstaffeln were the most common users of this fighter.

Alongside the Albatros D.III/D.V & Fokker Dr.I the Pfalz D.IIIa was one of the most important & numerous German fighters in front-line use until the arrival of the mighty Fokker D.VII. Many famous aces first flew the Pfalz D.III/D.IIIa before finally gaining their fame flying other aircraft.
