Tie fighters

A flight of TIE fighters

A flight or flight group was a grouping of three, four or five starfighters, depending on the military, that was typically though not always led by a captain. Three flights of four starfighters, or four flights of three starfighters, typically made up a squadron. Many military organizations, such as the Imperial Navy and New Republic Starfighter Command, used this system of intra-squadron organization. It was also utilized within mercenary and pirate units.

General Maarek Stele often led flight groups of two to four, while just as frequently flying solo.

"Flight" also referred to flight-related technology—such as starships, airspeeders, or jetpacks—or to the general concept of flight—such as piloting or with natural wings as Geonosians and Toydarians.
