The Masters of Flight is a ship series created in conjunction with the flight-sim Arena Commander. It is a series of ships that have a different loadout and livery from the stock ship. They are created in honour of a famous pilot who made a name for themselves in the UEE Navy, as a bounty hunter, or as a famed dogfighter. Each ship boasts a powerful weapon loadout that is focused more on dogfighting from the stock ship. [1]

The Wildfire pays tribute to famed pilot Aria Reilly for her distinguished service with the legendary Squadron 42. This Hornet comes equipped with her own personally selected loadout preferences and a custom special edition livery honoring her iconic ship[3]

The Wildfire follows Reilly's favoured loadout, swapping energy weapons for ballistic cannons. It replaces the two Badgers repeaters on the wings with high-power Tarantula cannons and gives the ship a versatile missile loadout; carrying both Pioneer and Spark III missiles. Additionally, the center ball turret, normally used for cargo in the F7C, is reinstalled with twin M4A Laser Cannons.

The Valiant pays tribute to famed defense pilot Condi Hillard for being the first Human on record to defeat a Vanduul in combat. This Gladius comes equipped with a specialized dogfighting focused loadout and a custom special edition livery honoring her iconic ship.[5]

The Valiant boasts a new array of weaponry over the standard Gladius, giving it an edge over Vanduul attackers in longer engagements. The ballistic Bulldog and Scorpion cannons are removed in favour of two energy weapons: two NN-13 Neutron guns on the wings and a Badger repeater on the nose. The eight basic Ignite II missiles were replaced with a varied missile loadout of Viper and Pioneer missiles.
