Plot

The Dead End Kids work as airplane mechanics in the National Youth Administration Work Program plant. Feeling that they have enough knowledge of planes, they feel the urge to want to become pilots. The boys are hired by crop dusting operator Arnold Carter to become pilots. Upon being hired, York (Carter's manager) feels that the boys are far too inexperienced to fly, and assigns them to ground work. When Carter's company falls behind in their contracts, the Dead End Kids are forced to learn the ropes of flying. Eventually, York agrees that all of the boys are ready to become pilots,
