Rebel pilots assemble in the retrofitted briefing room within the ancient Massassi Temple prior to the Battle of Yavin

Rebel pilots flew starfighters, light freighters, and atmospheric repulsorlift vehicles for the Alliance Starfighter Corps of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Like the rest of the Alliance Military (and unlike the Imperial Navy), they came from a wide variety of species, planets, and backgrounds. Some were defectors trained at one of the Imperial Academies, while others were former scouts, smugglers, pirates, or independent traders, or bush pilots from the Outer Rim.

Rebel pilots had a reputation for bravery, since they were almost always outnumbered when they went into battle. They also had a reputation for skill and success, after such Rebel victories as the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Endor.

Rebel pilots wore orange, green, or beige flight suits. The flight suits had a winter vest such as the ones worn on Hoth. They wore a flak vest with a life support box on top. They also wore the famous helmet which included an orange visor with a special computer projection for targeting.

Components

The Alliance Pilot serves the Rebel Alliance -- the ragtag coalition of heroes who oppose the tyranny of the Galactic Empire. As an Alliance pilot, you will have access to a wide range of powerful starships, including the versatile X-wing and the incredibly fast A-wing. Alliance pilots also learn special Rebel piloting techniques and custom astromech programs that improve a starfighter's defensive capabilities and other features.

Because the Rebel Alliance is embroiled in a violent war with the Empire, the life of an Alliance Pilot is fraught with danger. If you start down this path, you can expect to clash with Imperial forces on a regular basis.

Getting Started

Rebel ace pilot

Starting with the Alliance Pilot tree involves visiting one of three trainers. These trainers can be found on the planets of Naboo, Corellia, and Tatooine. Talking to a trainer will allow you to pick up the Alliance Recruit skill and start down the path of being an Alliance Ace Pilot.

Which trainer you initially visit determines the Rebel squadron you join. Different squadrons have different missions to accomplish on the way to Ace, though all three squadrons require the same missions for Ace Pilot. The three squadrons, and their initial trainers, are:

To Master the Alliance Pilot tree you must talk to the Master Trainer:

If you want to stop being an alliance pilot you can do that at the Rebel Recruiter named J'pai Brek (-5072, -2343) Tyrena, Corellia. She is located in the small park just in front of the starport.

Name Combat Role Granted At Notes
Z-95 Headhunter (Training ship) Light Fighter Alliance Starfighter Trainee This is the first ship you recieve as an Allaince pilot. Equipped with "Prototype" ship components.
Z-95 Headhunter Light Fighter Alliance Starfighter Trainee Also available as a "heavy variant", ideal grinding ship until the X-Wing starfighter.
Y-wing Bomber Basic Starfighter Continuation This is the brick of the Rebel Allaince fleet. It moves like a dead Hutt over a mountain, yet it is a good ship for dogfighting, as its armor and weapons, though out-of-date, are a force to be reckoned with. Note: This is the multiplayer starfighter for Alliance Pilots.
Y-wing Longprobe Bomber Multi-role Craft A Y-Wing where the secondary weapon is controlled by the pilot as well as the primary.
X-wing Medium Fighter Space Superiority Fighter This is the notorious T65 X-Wing Starfighter, making up the backbone of the Rebel Alliance Fleet. This is a great all purpose ship, as it has great armor without sacrificing too much manuverability or speed. It is definatly possible to reach Alliance Ace Pilot level with this fighter, and is probably the most popular ship in the game along with the YT-1300 light freighter.
A-wing Interceptor Hyper-manoeuvrable Starfighters The A-Wing starfighter is the cheetah of the Rebel Fleet. A small, one gunned craft, this ship speeds along like Bothan running from a wookiee. The A-Wing makes a great reconnaissance ship, as it can move in and out of territory literally in a matter of minutes. Great for small Rebel space outpost trying to spy on Imperial activity. Almost nothing can catch up with it accept for maybe the Actis-class fighter or possible the TIE Inteceptor.
Advanced X-wing Heavy Fighter Hyper-manoeuvrable Starfighters Same as the normal X-wing, exept it has 180,000 mass. Quest reward.
B-wing Heavy Bomber Alliance Master Pilot The B-Wing starfighter was intended to replace the outdated Y-Wing fighter, and it would have if there weren't so many of them. This fighter flies like the Y-wing, only with more firepower and no co-pilot/gunner.
Nova Courier Multipassenger Ship Alliance Master Pilot This ship has been known to be the headquarters of many Rebel Allaince space-oriented guilds, and why not? This can be customized to look like one, can fit enough people, and is bigger than the YT-1300 and the YT-2400 freighters. Note: This is the POB ship for the Rebel Alliance.

Pilot Abilities

The Rebel Alliance navy is a ragtag group of pilots who rely on a diverse fleet cobbled together from stolen, borrowed, or illegally purchased starfighters. Because the Rebels have worked so hard to build their fleet, Alliance commanders stress the importance of bringing back each starship intact. Thus, the abilities that Rebel pilots master include protective measures and tactics for increasing survival. Like their Imperial counterparts, Rebel flight officers can also call on allies.
