A L'ulo Stand was an atmospheric flight maneuver[1] named after L'ulo L'ampar,[2] a captain in the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[3] To complete the move, a pilot had to cut the engine thrust and pull up a fraction of a second later. At that point, wind resistance and gravity would slow the starfighter, forcing pursuing ships to overshoot. Shara Bey, an A-wing pilot in the Rebel Alliance, had only seen one other pilot able to complete it. Bey later taught the maneuver to her son, Poe Dameron, who successfully attempted the flight tactic in the vacuum of space during the skirmish in OR-Kappa-2722 by activating counterthrusters.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The L'ulo Stand first appeared in Before the Awakening, a junior novel written by Greg Rucka and published in 2015. In the novel, however, L'ulo is misspelled as "L'ullo."[1]
