Noir. Academy was founded in September of 2009 as a response to many requests from younger, and inexperienced pilots to be taught the ways of Noir. and learn the basics of PVP.
Through determination and discipline we will teach you PVP and mercenary life from the smallest skirmish to the largest battles, learning how to destroy unsuspecting targets and evading the void yourselves. Designed specifically to train any willing pilot wishing to join the ranks of Noir., but who lacks sufficient PVP experience, the Noir. Academy offers to teach you the combined tactics, experiences and skills of the best instructors and pilots from Noir. The aim is to provide a seamless link from any experience level to valued member of our member corps.
Noir. Academy Minimum Requirements:
- A passion and patience for learning
- Willingness to PVP, to kill and be killed.
- Mature personality and professional demeanor
- Ability to use voice comms
- Able to fly an armor and shield cruiser.
- Understanding of basic game mechanics
- Fly at least 10-15 or more hours a week.
- No "Smack" in local. Talking in local is fine. Smacking is not. If you don't know the difference you probably won't fit in.

- Only other forum rule is that at no time will any member of Noir. discuss an ongoing contract in a public forum.
- Be respectful of the customer at all times.
- Be respectful to each other. Joking around is fine, but Drama will not be tolerated.
- Lowsec 'piracy' is fine but you must keep your sec status above -2.0. No exceptions.
- No can flipping, see above. You are, however, welcome to bait can flippers to your heart's content.
- No use of 'wreck' mechanics to deliberately provoke PVP.
- No use of 'logoffski' to avoid losing your ship at a gate/station/whatever. Likewise, no Self-Destructing to avoid giving enemies a kill-mail.
- Students are not to be in the alliance contract areas unless authorized by leadership.
All time zones are welcome in NA.
