Welcome the Battlestar Fan Club i am sure you will enjoy your time here as you make new friends and take in the website. You want to be a Viper excellent nothing like hunting down Cylon Raiders and patrol sectors of space. Again welcome to the Fleet!
Welcome aboard The Raven, Ana! 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 that you are on the ball and have already joined the Spartan Squadron. You will do fine with Ensign "NAT" Hallam in command. 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!
