If stunt pilots Ormer Locklear and Al Wilson could star in their own films, then by golly James F. Fulton could too. Only one problem: Fulton may have been a star in the clouds, but on land he was just one step above inept. In Air Mail Pilot, Fulton not unexpectedly plays the title role, while Earl Metcalfe portrays Fulton's Hated Rival. It turns out that Metcalfe is responsible for a series of mail robberies, a fact that leads inexorably to the airborne climax. Blanche Mehaffey, a cult-favorite starlet of the 1920s and 1930s, is her usual pretty but clumsy self as Fulton's one-and-only.
