To apply for Buccaneer Squadron, candidates must submit a XvT pilot file to Buccaneer Leader. They must also submit a pilot biography of no less than 250 words, describing their pilot in the Star Wars universe.

Writing the character biography can sometimes be the most difficult aspect of completing the entry requirements to join a squadron. Please read the Liberty's biography guide for helpful recommendations of bio do's and don'ts.
