new at this forum so: hi folks!

New with the xwing game and love it. Got a question about the barrel roll.

So, i got a tie wing who can make a barrel roll as an action. Is it possible, as an action, to do a barrel roll after all ships on the board made their movements? Even when i am not the highest level pilot on the board? 

Looking at the rules, it looks like i am not allowed to do so. But it is much more interesting to do a barrel roll when knowing where the xwing or other opponents end up. 

My appologize if this questions has been awnsered allready somewhere else.

You can do that only if you have a suitable source for an action outside of your activation step: for example a high-PS pilot (for example Vader) with Squadron Leader passed you an action. (But note that you can only barrel roll once during a round, like any other action.)

Don't worry. You might want to check out the X-wing forum on this site.
Plenty of questions and answers there. Have fun with the game and welcome to BGG.

So, being a Academy pilot and only have my standard action to make, i can only barrel roll in my turn during the activation phase and then i have to wait and see what the next pilot will do.

That's correct. Positioning actions like Barrel Roll and Boost (which was introduced with TIE Interceptor and A-wing) are much more useful on high Pilot Skill ships than on the generic Academy Pilot... unless you have a hunch where your opponent is going and/or want to block a ship to deny its actions.
