    Isn't it possible that Luke already studied flight while growing up and/or had some experience with farm or hobby equipment?

    I'd be down for that. It might seem a little too similar to ROTS, but...

    Well, we all know what "poetic" thing George would have to say about that. ;)

    I'm referring to her flying an X-wing. There's little doubt in my mind that she'll be at the controls of the Falcon, but not a fighter specifically.

    Oh dang you're right! My bad. She mans the guns in TLJ.

    To my point though, we now know she can pilot AND fight in a ship. I'm still hoping for Rey in an X-wing.

    MANS the guns?!?!? Oh now I'm really mad!!!

    But in all seriousness, I don't really care if she does or not...screw it.
    Put Rey in a N-1 Starfighter

    Put the entire Resistance in N-1s. It's the final film and the first film, back to back. It's like poetry. :p

    Maybe Rey will try spinning. That's a good trick.

    Yes. He even brags about it. And Biggs vouches for his flight skills.

    Would not be surprised if Rey at some point is flying a ship other than the Falcon.

    Kylo did it in TLJ and he would be soooooo mad if Rey stole of his grandpa's signature moves

    I want to see the Falcon in an excessive amount action so I want all Rey's flying with Chewie on the Falcon.
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 22, 2019, Original Post Date: Feb 22, 2019 ---
    Doesn't Kylo call it an escape shuttle?
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 22, 2019 ---
    Hopefully that won't happen. I don't want Finn to be a combat pilot. I like him as a soldier.

    Any chance of some decent screen time for Artoo and Threepio ?:(

    His T-16 could have definitely helped...farm and hobby equipment on the other hand

    The movie itself - well the SE version that is - has Biggs vouching for Luke's skill as "the best bush pilot in the Outer Rim" so it is a good exposition of Luke's abilities. If we're allowed to reference the EU, then both the T-16 and X-Wing are manufactured by Incom and have similar controls... but I honestly don't remember where that little factoid first appears.

    Haven't MSW heard she has Luke's helmet in recent rumours. I don't luke speculating about information because I am usually wrong. But I wouldn't be shocked if she flies something others than the falcon. Also there are rumours of Rey being separated she's probably going to need her own transport. Plus the falcon seems to be a floating resistance base in space at the end of TLJ.

    If they return to Achto, much like Luke's return to Dagobah to talk to Yoda, she may speak to Luke's ghost and retrieve his helmet there. A nice nod to ROTJ. Not out of the realm of possibility. Also, keep in mind they may have "felt" Luke become one with the Force or whatever, but she might want to return to Achto to be sure. Lots of nostalgia to be had.

    In light of some of the latest rumors . . .

    How frickin cool would it be if Rey lifts Luke's X-Wing out of the water and uses it in IX? I don't expect this, but I would be out of my seat cheering.

    Eh, maybe she'll retrieve it between episodes and fly it in IX. A guy can dream.
