Real-life flyboy Al Wilson starred in a string of successful silent aviation epics, of which Air Patrol was typical. Wilson is cast as special agent Al Langdon, at present pursuing elusive gem smuggler Michael Revere (Jack Mower). Going undercover, Langdon joins Revere's gang, and in this capacity is obliged to rescue their beautiful hostage, Mary Lacy (Elsa Benham). When his ruse is discovered, our hero is bound hand-and-foot and locked in a shack, while Revere escapes by air with Mary still in his clutches. But Langdon escapes in time to give chase to Revere, leading to a thrill-packed conclusion high above the clouds.
