Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Welcome aboard Andrew!

Andrew, here is a link to the Admiral's email addresses:


I advise any nugget sending scores off to the Admiral for grading to send to both addresses to insure he gets it. Also remember to include the state you reside in and the craft you choose to fly, viper or raptor.

Hi Andrew,

I am sorry I am delayed in responding. The email to submit your exams to is cag_vf84@yahoo.com. Good luck and happy hunting!


At 10:02am on May 9, 2017, LT. Tony "Aeneas" Carvell said…

Andrew, look on any of the squadron group pages and there you will find the Fleet Admiral's email for the Viper, and Raptor, tests. Good luck.

Can you tell me which emails you are using?

Welcome aboard the Raven Andrew! My name is Hitman. I am the squadron leader for the Raven viper group Flying Tigers. By the looks of things it seems you would like to be a Viper pilot. The Raven has many great squadrons to choose from. Choose wisely. But even before you choose be sure to look them over. Also don forget to look over the Viper Pilot test material and get your test in for grading. You want to shoot for the best score possible and earn Top Gun status.
Here is the link to the Training manual along with the test at the end.

I look forward to recycling some toasters with you in the future. Don't forget that we are all here for the same reason and that is the love of BSG and to have a little bit of fun. You will get out of this experience exactly what you put into it.

Good luck and have fun.
" We're flying, They're dying,... Flying Tigers Forever!"

Welcome to the Raven Air Wing, Andrew. I am Aeneas, squadron leader of the 611thFS, Perseus, flying the Viper mkVII. I am always in need of a new Viper jock. First thing you need to do is join the Raven group,  do this by clicking on the icon in the groups section of the homepage. When you have chosen your squadron do the same to join that too.  If I can be of any further help please ask. Happy landings! 

Train hard,  Strike hard!

Welcome aboard The Raven, Andrew! 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! Next, you'll want to select a squadron to join. 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 email addresses:


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!
