The awing has a hitbox glitch right now so its the hardest to hit.

As for flying, there are several things..for starters, that orange and yellow bar controls your speed and firepower. The slower you go the harder you hit. The dpad maneuvers are a life saver but don't count on them.

Listen to the callouts on the radio, it will tell you when have someone behind you plus other info. Same as it works on the ground when it tells you stormtroopers are nearby.

Rebel fighters are superior due to having a shield vs speed boost.

Speed boost on ties often get you out of range of missiles but the person chasing you will easily have a straight line of sight on you now.

Surprised some people didnt realise but...
The yellow/orange speed bar above the health bar. To speed up, push up on L3. Slow down is back on L3. Makes for nice tight turns when you pull back with L3 and turn with R3.

Try the shotgun CA-whatever. Not great on long range maps but fun as hell.

Also Leia's high damage R1 ability can be fired through her shield bubble.

Most of theses tips, just go check out youtube for guys like Xfactor.

Using Focus Fire on the shotgun almost completely removes the spread and essentially makes it a cannon.
