Sorry about earlier. Hopefully I didn't come off like some authority on the subject which I am certainly not. I didn't get a chance to ask what kind of knowledge you had on it or even if you were looking for it. I was just trying to help out as I have done some research on it.
This is a proud day for me to be joining the legendary ranks of the "Spartans". Ever since I could remember from growing up on Canceron was to be fighter pilot aboard a Battlestar. Yesterday I entered my first Battlestar and today I am one step closer to achieving this dream to be a fighter pilot.
When ready I will submit my test. For now, I will be studying in my bunk and familiarizing myself with my new home the Battlestar Raven BFC-002.
We Spartans are a tough lot with plenty of opportunity to prove your mettle!!
Definitely work on completing the Viper Qualification and Colonial Defense Force exams, although not mandatory, they are certainly a great way of fully immersing yourself in the experience here. I would also suggest choosing a callsign.
Welcome aboard The Raven, Natalie! I hope you'll take some time to familiarize yourself with the site...whether it be discussions or taking a more active role, there is something for everyone! I see your interest is becoming a Viper Pilot. The Raven Air Wing has six Viper squadrons and one Raptor squadron, all of which are in need of quality pilots behind the stick. You'll want to first choose a callsign (please keep it clean!). Next, you'll want to choose the bird you want to fly, Viper or Raptor. Viper is the popular choice and we do need Viper pilots! Take into consideration as well that the Air Wing's Raptor Squadron, The Seekers, are one of the most visible and active groups within the club. But that is what makes it all fun, because the choice is up to you! I see you have already joinded The Spartan Squadron, so you must be ready to fly! We're trying to fill out the active ranks with some squadrons, but any choice is fine! Now comes the qualifications. Although not absolutely necessary to fly, it is nice to be certified and will definitely look good on your record. There is the Colonial Defense Force (CDF) test, which is simply basic knowledge of the CDF and it's standard operating procedures. Then there is the Viper and Raptor qualifications. Pass Viper qualification with a 100% score and you'll earn the prestigious Top Gun status. Raptor qualification is passed with a 75% score. Here are the links to the manual and tests:
They are in PDF format, so you will have to download them. The links also describe how to format your answers and the email to send off to Admiral Rivera for scoring. Note: send your answers to both emails to insure the Admiral receives them. After you receive your scores, we will certify them by issuing you a nameplate and then you will become a steely-eyed pilot in the fleet's finest, The Raven Air Wing! But remember, at the end of the day, it's all about having fun. And also, you get out of the club what you put in! I am Lt. Michael "Mik Mo" Morelock, Commander Air Group of the Raven Air Wing and Seekers Squadron commander. If you have any further, questions, please feel free to ask!
