Flying has always been in Skystriker's blood. His father was a flight operations officer in the Air Force in Maryland. It should then come as no surprise that he would choose a career in the Air Force as a fighter pilot. Once he earned his "wings", Skystriker wasted no time in showing what he could do in the air. He could pull stunts like a double-looped nose dive in front of two enemy fighters and come up with aerial tactics that everyone swears they have never heard of. He makes pilots like Ace and Slip-Stream green with envy.
