The Cracken Flight Group, also known as Cracken's Flight Group, was the name given to the pilots in Pash Cracken's wing of TIE Fighters whom he led in a defection from the Galactic Empire to the Rebel Alliance. Their destruction of the Exsanguinator made the flight and their leader legendary.

The pilots of the Cracken Flight Group earned a reputation in the Alliance Fleet for hit-and-fade raids, including one of the first raids by an A-wing squadron.

When his unit was forced to abandon their base at Xyquine II, Cracken developed the Cracken Twist to fool the Imperial assault force. Cracken had high personal success in his interceptor, but his reckless methods proved too inspiring to his pilots, and a few perished trying to replicate their leader's luck. Frustrated, Cracken requested and received a transfer to Wedge Antilles' Rogue Squadron, where he flew as Rogue Four.

Cracken returned to his flight group after his stint with the Rogues, and led them during Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign against the New Republic five years after the Battle of Endor.
