Fictional team biography
Flight tier level
Gamma Flight first appeared in Alpha Flight vol. 1, #1 (August 1983).
The original Gamma Flight served as the first tier in the three-tier process of becoming a member of Alpha Flight as instituted by Department H. Gamma Flight was mostly raw recruits. After a training period, theoretically they would be upgraded to Beta Flight and eventually to Alpha Flight, the premiere official superhero team of Canada. The members were Diamond Lil, Smart Alec, Wild Child, and Madison Jeffries.
Canadian government sanctioned team
The Canadian government founded a new sanctioned superhero team after the disappearance of Alpha Flight. This Gamma Flight included Nemesis, Wildchild, Silver, Auric and Witchfire. With Alpha Flight implicated in various misdeeds that occurred, Gamma Flight had orders to bring them to the authorities. This team was later disbanded in a merger with Department H and Alpha Flight with some members leaving.
In a revived Department H, Gamma Flight refers to support operations.
