The Skywalker Swoop was a flight maneuver taught as a training basic to the pilots of the Resistance around thirty years after the Battle of Endor. It was named in honor of the venerated pilot and Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, who flew for the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and was best known for personally firing the shot that destroyed the Galactic Empire's first Death Star at the Battle of Yavin.
