Star Wars Rebels Wiki

The Skystrike Academy was an Imperial Academy responsible for training elite fighter pilots for the Galactic Empire and testing new craft such as the TIE Interceptors.


Skystrike was the premier flight academy of the Empire, where the most promising pilots were sent to be trained in service to the Empire. However, not all such recruits took kindly to the ruthlessness with which they were expected to carry out missions of questionable morality, and three of them-Wedge Antilles, Derek Klivian, and Rake Gahree-sought to defect and join the Rebellion. Phoenix Squadron learned of this through one of their Fulcrum agents, and were able to insert Sabine Wren into the academy in an effort to find and assist the would-be defectors.
