See Rebel Pilot
X-wing pilots were Rebellion pilots skilled at flying X-wings. They usually flew as the main attack force, supported by smaller and quicker fighters. These pilots flew at almost every battle, notably being present for the Battle of Scarif, Siege of Inyuso Tor, Battle of Hoth, Battle of Yavin, Battle of Endor, Liberation of Bespin, Battle of Jakku, Battle of Tatooine, and many others. They would eventually go on to join the New Republic, though some joined the Resistance.
