A newly-formed flying school, located at a small flying field, attracts a lot of young men based on the World War I reputation of its flying instructor, Captain Rockcliffe "Lucky Rocky" Ames. One of the students, using an assumed name, is the son that the instructor never knew. Lucky's brother, Bob, manages the flying school, and is having a romance with a girl student, and there are conflicts between the two brothers. "Trip" Hammer, another veteran WWI ace, serves as the intermediary between "Rocky" and his younger brother. Written by Les Adams <>
