No problem Ensign Gizmo! If you like there are two other exams you can take to earn certificates. Any pilot whether if he wants to pilot a Viper can also take the Raptor exam and vice versa. I used to recommend that to all my pilots and many are certified Raptor Wranglers as was Admiral Adama of the RMD Galatica series.
There's also the CDF OP's exam anyone interested in the military side of BSG would be interested in. The manual is choke full of very useful info and I know you will like it.
Just look through the discussions in the Flying Tigers home page to find these exams and other very interesting topics.
I’m Major Reamer; I've made VNP’s (Viper Name Plate) for all the Flying Tigers pilots when I was the squadron commander. It's always great to see the squadron continuing to grow. Your VTN (Viper Tail Number) is incomplete. When and if you take the Viper exam, Adm Rivera will issue your VTN and I will update this image for you.
Your VNP is a Jpeg image that can be printed, saved here in your photos and saved on your computer if you like.
I also made these a while back and personalized them for each pilot. Here's one for you. I hope you like it. It's also a Jpeg image that can be printed and saved.
