Wingleader was a position of importance in the weyrs. A wingleader was a dragonrider who was in charge of a wing of fighting dragons. Wingleaders were usually riders of bronze or brown dragons, though Xhinna, rider of blue Tazith, was a wingleader during an extended stay in her past on the Far Western Continent.

A wingleader usually had one or two wingseconds, who could take over during Threadfall in the event the wingleader was injured or killed.
