The RLSC is responsible for the formation and administration of Official Squadrons within all Rebel Legion bases. Squadron requirements and regulations under the Detachment are as follows:

• REGULATION 1Formation
A Base needs at least 3 formal costumed members who agree on the Squadron name to formally request Squadron status. An application for this purpose can be found in the Charter under “Amendment A” as well as can be requested from RLSC Command Staff.

• REGULATION 2A Base Squadron
Bases shall be limited to one Official Squadron and Squadron Unit Designation per Base for Pilot costumes regardless of make or model of starfighter. This includes the combination of Prequel and Original Trilogy Pilots.

• REGULATION 2BWings & Flights
Squadrons can be split within the Base, by the approval of both the Squadron Command Unit and the Base Commander, into smaller sections based on geographical location. These groupings will remain part of the Base Squadron and shall be designated as either Wings or Flights. These groupings will not be considered as officially separate Squadrons. Should a formation of Wings or Flights contribute to the decline of a Squadron’s performance or harmony, the grouping will be dissolved by the RLSC Command Staff and re-absorbed into the Base Squadron.

• REGULATION 2C Wing/Flight Administration
Wings and Flights may have Group Leaders (GL) assigned at the discretion of the Squadron Command Unit. Wing and Flight names are to be selected by the Squadron with emphasis being given to those Pilots who would be assigned to it. Wing and Flight names must conform to the same standards and regulations as Squadron names (ARTICLE VI/REGULATIONS 4A & 4B).

• REGULATION 3Command Units
Each Squadron must have a Squadron Command Unit consisting of a Squadron Commander (SC) and a Squadron Executive Officer (SXO). The Squadron Commander need not be a Base Commander in order to hold this position. However, the SC must have the approval of the Base Command Staff in order to hold the position. The Base Squadron will function as a part of the Base in conjunction with RLSC.

• REGULATION 4AUnit Designation & Crest
Each Squadron must have a unique Unit Designation (Squadron name) in order to apply for Squadron formation. Base Squadron names and logos should fit within provable Star Wars nomenclature and graphical elements. The names of the following Squadron Unit Designations (SUD) are restricted by virtue of use in the Official Star Wars Universe (i.e. movies, published materials, etc.) or previous use by the Rebel Legion: Wraith, Rogue, any squadron name in official SW media, and every name currently in use by existing Base Squadrons and/or Wing/Flights. A SUD will reflect on its members and as such should be chosen only by the pilots that make up the Squadron. Voting for a Unit Designation will be limited to those Base members who own a Pilot costume.

Squadron logos or crests are not required for Squadron formation. However it is recommended that a Squadron crest be created at the Squadron’s earliest convenience.

• REGULATION 4B Nomenclature & Sources
Use of items, names and symbols by the Squadron from within the Star Wars universe are allowed and encouraged. Use of items and symbols found in the real world, but not mentioned in the Star Wars universe can also be considered for Unit Designations and crests, as long as the use of this material does not violate any other trademark or copyright (i.e. Nike’s “Swoosh”, etc.) or ARTICLE VI/REGULATION 4A of the RLSC Charter.

• REGULATION 4CCopywrited Material
Use of images from other copywrited material (other than LFL material) is prohibited. The latitude given to the Rebel Legion by LFL is not universally shared by all entities. However, if a copywrited image has been altered enough so that it's not immediately identifiable as belonging to another company, entity or genre, then it may be considered.

• REGULATION 4DSquadron Membership
Being a Pilot in the RLSC does not guarantee a berth in a Base Squadron. A Pilot must apply to their Squadron Command Unit for acceptance into a Base Squadron. Assignments of Pilot call signs are handled by the Squadron Command Unit in the manner they see fit. (i.e. in numerical order of joining, letting Pilots choose their own, etc.)

• REGULATION 4ESquadron Ratification
Final approval of the SUD and crest as well as their completed formation is made by the RLSC Command Staff pending review of materials and application under ARTICLE VI/REGULATIONS 4A, 4B, and 4C.
