The Sky Troopers are a highly trained unit with specially designed armor, with distinctive gray unit markings. Their armor is very light weight, but can withstand high altitudes and the pressure from G-forces. They are equipped and trained with Z-7I Jetpacks. The Z-7I Jetpacks were especially designed with a more stable gyro, a larger fuel tank and higher thrusting power for the Imperial Forces, by Mitrinomon Transports. The Z-7I Jetpack, makes the Sky Trooper units extremely fast and maneuverable, enabling them to get behind enemy lines quickly, and to set up ambushes, when ground troops and large vehicles are unable to do so. Wielding the BlasTech DC-15A and DC-15S, the Sky Trooper units are well known for their marksmanship. They are also trained in the use of hit-and-run attacks and often provide Stormtrooper units with air cover during pitched battles. With the combination of the Jetpack and their marksmanship, the Sky Trooper units are a very formidable weapon for the Empire.

Description: Sky Trooper
Prefix: TK
Detachment: First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment
Context: The Sky Troopers appear in the Disney Star Tours II 3-D attraction ride.

The Sky Troopers are a highly trained unit with specially designed armor, with distinctive gray unit markings. Their armor is very light weight, but can withstand high altitudes and the pressure from G-forces. They are equipped and trained with Z-7I Jetpacks. The Z-7I Jetpacks were especially designed with a more stable gyro, a larger fuel tank and higher thrusting power for the Imperial Forces, by Mitrinomon Transports. The Z-7I Jetpack, makes the Sky Trooper units extremely fast and maneuverable, enabling them to get behind enemy lines quickly, and to set up ambushes, when ground troops and large vehicles are unable to do so. Wielding the BlasTech DC-15A and DC-15S, the Sky Trooper units are well known for their marksmanship. They are also trained in the use of hit-and-run attacks and often provide Stormtrooper units with air cover during pitched battles. With the combination of the Jetpack and their marksmanship, the Sky Trooper units are a very formidable weapon for the Empire.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

FISD Defines two additional, optional levels of costuming excellence. In the page below, requirements for Level 2 "Expert Infantryman" are listed in blue. Requirements for Level 3 "Centurion" are listed in red.

  • Those armor pieces without blue and/ or red text are by default considered the highest level.
  • Please visit the FISD web site for a full description of these standards.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.

Special Notes:

  • Visit the Frequently asked questions page for information on the Rubies Supreme Stormtrooper costume.
