A competing plane company is seeking the same Army contract as Bentley, and offers a $500 bonus to their publicity woman Marge Stevens if she can entice Joe into quitting Bentley to join their company. When Joe takes repeated unnecessary risks in the air, Bentley fires him and Joe goes to work for the competitor. He almost loses his life when the inferior plane he is testing fails to function at a high altitude, a fault that the designer had anticipated but had let get by because of his greed in getting the contract. Before an investigation board, Joe's new employer falsely swears that Joe had disobeyed orders, and Joe is officially grounded. Joe and a friend "kidnap" the test pilot Bentley has hired to replace Joe, and Joe makes a successful flight. The Army accepts the Bentley plane and Joe has his license restored.
