He was accepted into the flight school called Top Gun in Miramar. There you could find the best of the best pilots competing amongst each other. He was young and a little bit troublesome, he had a bad habit of disobeying orders but he was still one of the best. His biggest rival was Tom Kazansky who was also known as “Iceman”. Maverick was considered dangerous and reckless; he was willing to abandon his team to pursue careless objectives. Besides flying one day he set his eyes on a girl in a bar only to get rejected and to find out that she is one of the instructors at the Top Gun academy. In a couple of training, they proved to him that good teamwork can win almost any situation.
In one situation a friend and Maverick’s second pilot dies in an accident where he hit the aircraft canopy. Although that was all his responsibility and he was clear in the clear he was feeling very guilty. He was touched by Goose’s death and he was considering retiring from flying. In the end, he managed to find peace and will continue and graduate. He didn’t manage to win the Top Gun trophy because of the superior Iceman.
