The Aerial Knights (空中騎士団 Kūchū Kishi-Dan) are a Variable Fighter unit of the Windermere Kingdom as seen in the Macross Δ television series and its theatrical adaptation, Macross Δ Movie: Passionate Walküre.
Considered as Windermere's elite group of Variable Fighter pilots, the Aerial Knights are trained in various forms of combat. Senior knights act as "masters" to the younger ones, with the instructional sessions oftentimes done during real-time sorties.
The knight that serves as the best example to the others in both skill and demeanor is given the title "White Knight Of Derwent" and traditionally assigned a silver fighter as a leader unit.

Notes & Trivia
- In Delta Mini-Theater, the Aerial Knights have their own recurring segment called Onward! Aerial Knights (行け!空中騎士団 ike! kuuchuu kishidan), which is mainly centered on Bogue and his interactions with the others in Windermere Castle. Due to Windermere's standing embargo on anything related to human culture barring specific exceptions, many of their appliances (VHS players, CRT TVs, etc) are decades behind compared to other communities in the galaxy. Moreover, the Aerial Knights themselves are shown as static profiles.
