This action-packed drama series is set at the Pacific International Airport, where five million passengers pass through every year and 8,000 people work…the city of the air. Paul MacFarlane runs the place. He was a pilot with Trans Asia Airlines until he was grounded. Now he's in his early forties, a tough executive with the common touch. He needs it. At any moment he may have to deal with the demands of his staff. It could be trivial this time or a danger to security the next. Or it might be a VIP demanding the impossible at once. Patience is MacFarlane's strong point. The action is not all on the ground. In the air, the crews of Trans Asia Airlines may be dealing with any emergency from foul weather to engine failure. If it's happening MacFarlane has to know…and usually fix it!
