All new members of the Rebel Squadrons must first start out as a Cadet. This is not a rank. A Cadet must first confirm their wish to join. They are then placed in the squadron for which they specified to join. A person may be given rank by graduating from the Academy or by earning one of the Beginner's Path ribbons. Depending on a person's accomplishments while a cadet, they may be given the rank Lieutenant Junior Grade or Second Lieutenant.[[1]]

It is highly recommended that new cadets review the Ops Manual (outdated) to learn how the Rebel Squadrons is organized and what the club has to offer. It is also recommended that they review all documents and graduation requirements for the platforms they wish to play.[[2]] More information may be available in the Academy article.

Command Limitations

Cadets cannot hold any command positions.

Roster Database quirks

Many historical members who served before or in 2001 have the rank of Cadet, even though they had achieved a much higher rank during their career. This is due to an accident where all rank data was lost; see Shik's Cadet Incident.
