A cropdusting plane with a fear of heights lives his dream of competing in a famous around-the-world aerial race.
The film was originally set to be a direct-to-video feature in North America, but Disney was impressed with some of the completed sequences so much, they decided to release it theatrically instead.

Ripslinger: Hey, you crazy?
When Dusty is talking to Ishani in Nepal and he mentions her 'new propeller' as Sky Slicer Mark 5, made exclusively for the Ripslinger racing team. The propeller is a four bladed prop. None of the Ripslinger entries (Ripslinger, Ned or Zed) are using a four bladed prop. Ripslinger uses two counter rotating two bladed props. Ned and Zed each use a single two bladed prop.
Part of the closing credits are a hand-drawn sequence of scenes from the film.
