Adventure flies higher than ever before in this sequel that finds championship air-racer Dusty Crophopper beginning an exciting new career fighting forest fires. In the wake of another successful racing season, Dusty returns home to Propwash Junction to resume his training, but a debilitating injury forces Rusty to consider a new career path. Before long Rusty is training with the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base. Meanwhile, as Rusty gets up to speed, his presence in the unit catches the attention of Dipper. A major racing fan, Dipper can hardly contain her excitement at the prospect of working alongside Rusty. In no time Rusty has made a whole host of new friends and though learning the secrets to dousing forest fires is sure to take time, Rusty is a fast learner, and eager to pitch in.
