The Flyboys (released Internationally as Sky Kids) is a 2008 American adventure film starring Reiley McClendon, Jesse James, Stephen Baldwin, and Tom Sizemore. The film starts with Kyle Barret leaving a Motel he and his mother have moved into to go to his first day of school. Jason McIntyre, another student, is about to present his science project, but is tripped by a bully named Rick, causing his project to fall apart. The teacher asks Jason what happened, and he says it's an accident to avoid getting beat up. Kyle tells the teacher it was Rick, and Jason confirms it, getting the bully in trouble. Outside the school, Rick and his friends are beating up Jason, when Kyle shows up and defeats all of them. Jason tries to talk to Kyle and thank him. He is ignored at first, but they soon become friends. However, they are confronted by Rick's older brother, who tries to beat them up. Jason runs away terrified, while Kyle hits the bully with his bike many times, then rips out his piercing and keys his car. The two are then chased around town by the angry teenager on their bikes and narrowly escape by jumping a canal. Jason takes Kyle to the airport and introduces him to his uncle Ed, who takes them flying in a biplane. They then have dinner at Jason's house and Kyle confronts him about leaving him to fight alone, but he forgives him. Ed agrees to take the kids flying again the next day at 7:00 AM. Jason gives Kyle a walkie talkie and convinces him to get in a Twin Beech parked in a hangar, whose owner is never around. They play in the cockpit for a while, but are soon interrupted when someone opens the gate. Kyle suggests they hide in the plane, since if they left it the men would notice them.
