Air America (1990)

  Summary  

In late 1969, Billy Covington works as a helicopter traffic pilot for a Los Angeles radio station, and loses his pilot's license after breaking FAA regulations. His piloting skills, bravery and disregard for the law are noticed by a mysterious stranger, who tells Billy that he can get his licence back if he accepts a job in Laos working for a "strictly civilian" company called Air America; the stranger insists that "there is no war in Laos, you can take that to the bank".

Billy, unemployed and unable to find work, takes the job and flies to Laos. By the end of his first day in Laos, he learns that fellow Air America pilot Gene Ryack is an arms merchant who uses official flights to buy black-market weapons for his private cache. His dream, which he refers to as his "retirement plan", is to make a sale big enough so that he can afford to quit his job at Air America.
