Flight Cadet was a rank in the Rebel Alliance. During the early stages of the First Galactic Civil War, it was the lowest rank, and was identifiable as being a white bare patch on the left shoulder, similar to the later Recruit rank. Post-Battle of Hoth, it was above Cadet (also known as Recruit) and below Flight Officer, was the second lowest rank, and was a red-trimmed square patch on the same location, and completely bare on the interior.
