Synopsis for Hop Harrigan: "Flight Club"

Miss Snap brings order and beauty to the team's everyday activities. That does not find support from Ikky, putting it mildly. After her decision to look after them permanently, Ikky tries to scare her off with some crazy flying on their way to a bank. Failing in that, he totally changes his mind on the subject, after Miss Snap stops a robbery single handed, with one well-thrown umbrella. And when she's told about the reward outstanding on one of the robbers, Miss Snap decides on the spot to invest it in the All-American Aviation Company. Now Ikky adores the old lady and formally resigns from his post as Treasurer in favor of Miss Snap. Prop and Hop go along. Miss Snap asks two conditions: 1/ turning out thousands of light civilian planes, and 2/ organizing a Hop Harrigan Flying Club for youngsters.
