Synopsis

Airline pilot Rick Richards, unemployed because of his playboy ways, returns to Hawaii. There, with his old friend Danny Kohana, he establishes a charter helicopter service to fly tourists around the islands. Judy Hudson, hired as a secretary, intrigues Rick with her aloofness, although he continues to see other girl friends who work in the hotels. When dogs in his helicopter cause Rick accidentally to buzz the car of a Federal aviation agent and force him into a ditch, Rick is grounded until a hearing can determine if his license should be revoked. He violates the order, however, to rescue Danny, whose leg is broken when his helicopter crashes in a remote section of the islands. At a big party, Rick's girl friends learn of his deals with other girls and gang up on him. He escapes, successfully pleads his case with the aviation agent, and wins Judy's affection.
