The Flying Dragon Squad (飛竜隊 Hiryū Tai) was one of the squads of teams belonging to the Magic Guild Fairy Tail. It was formed by the first master of Fairy Tail, Mavis Vermillion, during the international conflict between the continent of Ishgar and the Alvarez Empire.
The team was created by Mavis Vermillion as a tactical asset for defending against the impending Alvarez Empire invasion of Ishgar. The primary intention of the team is to intercept and disable aerial ships assaulting Magnolia Town. The objective of the squadron is to maintain ground assets, such as Freed Justine's Jutsu Shiki barrier, by reducing the number of enemy aerial bombers.
Aerial Defense of Magnolia
The Flying Dragon Squad was tasked with assaulting the invading Alvarez aerial flotilla, leading to the destruction of several individual unit ships. After the disabling of four enemy bombers, the squad came under heavy artillery fire from the remaining ships. After Osprey Squad's successful firing of the Jupiter cannon, wiping out a significant portion of the enemy fleet, Gajeel Redfox made the rash decision to board the command ship and was subsequently followed by Natsu Dragneel and Wendy Marvell. Only after coming into contact with the commander, Ajeel Raml, did the trio succumb to motion sickness, a point duly noted by Happy, Carla, and Panther Lily. The trio of Dragon Slayers were only saved by the intervention of Erza Scarlet.
