At 24 points, a pilot skill of 8, and a very good pilot ability, Bren is a great pilot. Elite Pilot Talents for Tomax are Crack Shot allowing you to chip away damage.
Lightning Reflexes creates amazing K-turns and you can use it reactively.
Cool Hand, and Adrenaline Rush are great fits for making your red manoeuvres that much more flexible. If you can build a pilot around these talents and practice flying with him, you'll be rewarded.
TIE Shuttle adds a whole different element to Bren yet no less dangerous. With Crack Shot combined with a Tactician for example you've got a dangerous ace that simply cannot be ignored. Add in Agent Kallus, and mark a target.
