1st Alliance Air Wing

1st Alliance Air Wing.jpg
First Alliance Air Wing
Unit Profile (as of 3067)
Nickname The Flying Nightmares
Parent Formation Alliance Military Corps


The first air unit created in the Outworlds Alliance, it has become the most respected unit in the Alliance. Its pilots are some of the best pilots in or out of the Inner Sphere. No one joins the First Air Wing straight out of training. Pilots are selected from the other four air wings based on skill and merit. While this has caused some friction with the other units, it isn't enough to effect joint operations.


The commanding officer of the Alliance Air Wing between 3064 and 3067 is Chairman Stephen Wood, a veteran of the 1st.[1][2] Chairman Wood piloted an Issus AeroSpace fighter in 3067.[3]

The commanding officer of the Avellar Guards between 3064 and 3067 is Chairman Douglas Carmichael.[1][2]

In 3145 the commanding officer is Chairman Nataniel Grec.[4]


Adept at space assaults the 1st has made it their personal mission to prevent opposing DropShips from making planetfall. The Avellar Guards are best digging in and holding static positions, but they do field enough equipment to allow for flanking and counterattacks should the situation present itself.
