TIE Fighter Pilots | 60 Second Lore

Today on 60 Second Lore we'll be taking a look at some of the Galactic Empire's most arrogant personnel. Yup, you guessed it, Imperial pilots! And it begins in 3, 2, 1...

Trained to fly the Imperial Navy's full range of TIE fighter models, these sinister-looking pilots were subjected to intense, self-seeking training. In fact, only 10% of TIE fighter cadets actually graduated with commissions, making them prideful yet arrogant. But looking past their notorious superiority complex, each took great pride in their respective TIE fighters, even though they lacked both hyperdrives and deflector shields. Moreover, at the expense of their own survival, TIE fighter pilots were conditioned to complete their assignments at all costs. This is what made the Imperial Navy one of the most competitive corps in the entire Galactic Empire. So while reinforced helmets and self-contained flight suits, which were worn in the event of system malfunctions, gave them an unremarkable appearance, TIE fighter pilots not only took great pleasure in flying – but they were incredibly agile, fearless, expressive, and all too willing to make great sacrifices.

Once more beating the clock with a few seconds to spare, it's now time to conclude our overview of Imperial pilots...
