Welcome to the Raven you have quite the Bio there. I am squadron Leader for he Flying Tigers Viper Squadron. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. You will get out of what you put in here. Most of all have fun.
Welcome aboard the Raven Thomas. I am Freya the Ravens Operations officer and one of the assistant squadron leaders for the Raven's Raptor Squadron The Seekers. I see you have already found your way to the Seekers group. We always need great pilots. Take the time to get familiar with the site you also want to join the Raven group so you can keep up to date with the ships happenings. When you are ready you can select a call sign and take the flight tests (raptor and viper if you choose). We do have an op coming up this Sunday night at 8pm eastern with a memorial to Richard Hatch about 30 min prior. You are more than welcome to join in if you are able to. If you have any questions please let me know. The first order of business if to HAVE FUN! I look forward to flying with you soon. Good Hunting!
Welcome aboard The Raven, Thomas! 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 Command. One of the best paths to Command is to become a 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 are interested in joining the Seekers. 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. VERY IMPORTANT: When you send your scores, be sure to advise the Admiral which state (or country) you reside. Also advise which craft you wish to fly, Viper or Raptor. This information is used to determine your tail number. Here is the link to the Admiral's emails:
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!

Hi Thomas, I see you have joined the Seekers Raptor squadron. Good choice. If you have not already done so, you also need to formally join the Raven group. You should also consider a call sign, perhaps from Nordic mythology or whatever takes your fancy.
Welcome to the battlestar Raven and BFC, Thomas. The ship needs it's commanders but many of them were first pilots, including the Admiral, Raven Actual. There are six Viper and one Raptor squadrons that form the Raven Air Wing, check them out in the groups section.
