    Post Who is the best fighter pilot

    I feel like making polls so tell me who your favorite pilot is living or dead.

    I'd say it's got to be Hobbie he's hilarius!!!

    Um, do you really need to ask?

    Wedge tests out Wes' fitness to command in his absence:

    "Ok Janson, here's the situation: an Adumari noble comes up to you and requests political asylum in the New Republic. What do you do?"

    "Is she good looking?"
    "You're good, but you're no Wes Janson." - Wes Janson

    I've got to put a stipulation down before I answer - this is the best Non-Force User Pilot.

    Tycho, any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Most of the books mention how clean his shots are and how controlled his flight patterns are. Wedge notes that he thinks Tycho goes easy on him during sims because he knows that it's Wedge he's flying against. Wedge is a very close second though.

    Best Force User Pilot - Corran Horn.

    Default Force user pilot

    Tycho, the best pilot......
    In star fighters of adumar he gets "shot down" (using simulated weapons) by Hobbie, is shot down in the Battle of Cartann, and is disabled in the final battle.......
    ........... he sure is the best

    and I would have to say Jaina solo is the best force using pilot and Corran second with Luke right on his heals.

    If I remember correctly, weren't they outnumbered, plus he was flying craft that he only had a small amount of flight hours logged, and aren't Blade's a lot less maneuverable than the TIE Interceptors that the Imperials were flying?

    Technically, Hobbie is dead. He died during the Battle of Hoth by crashing his snowspeeder into an AT-AT. However, he was written into the Rogue Squadron Comics. How he was 'resurrected' is that the authors of the comic didn’t check the continuity well enough (which is bound to happen a couple times in a universe as large as the EU) and Stackpole believes that: “Hobbie did crash at some point in the Hoth combat, but survived after a considerable amount of bacta treatment.” Also many of the other Alliance pilots said that, “Hobbie enjoyed bacta baths too much, and that he could crash any starship he touched.”

    While this is everyone's own thought on the subject there really isn't any need to be condescending to other members about their choices.

    I think Wedge Antilles carries the cake on this poll IMO. He's the only pilot to survive both Death Star assaults and was the co-founder of Rogue Squadron. He brought down the first walker at Hoth and was also personally responsible for opening Coruscant up for a Rebel invasion. His leadership capabilities allowed him to help bring down Isard as well as lead Rogue Squadron through campaigns against Zsinj, Thrawn, Daala, and Pellaeon. I would have to say that Wedge is undoubtedly the greatest starfighter pilot in the entire Star Wars saga.

    As far as pure talent for flying goes at the peak of their careers, it's a toss up between Tycho Celchu and Soontir Fel. The nod would go to Tycho, but Soontir Fel was his instructor at the Academy, so Fel gets the nod. He's the tragic hero of the Rebellion IMHO, and one of my favorite personalities in Star Wars.

    Any pilot who survives 2 attacks on death stars...

    I have to go with Wedge.

    Force using pilots: Luke Skywalker.

    Non-Force using pilot: Wedge Antillies.

    Overall, I'd vote Wedge, simply for his unbeatable track record in the cockpit, and the fact that he doesn't have the Force to help him along.
    Darth Vader was surprised to find that when Boba Fett said, "As you wish," what he really meant was, "I love you."

    Default Darth Vader

    Start with technical expertise and natural talent in anything that flies, add experience, The Force, more experience, cybernetic enhancements, and more experience. Too bad for him that he didn't have competent wingmen at Yavin.

    Since we're dealing with SW and good has to overcome evil, it's pretty much a given that Vader would lose to a hero. But, that hero is going to have to beat some pretty hefty odds to wax Vader.

    as the poll reflects its a very close tie between Han and Wedge for the best non-jedi-enhanced pilots
