Breezy Collins is the leader of the Glider Patrol, "three real American
boys and a girl...and all interested in aviation." They are:
Together, this intrepid group patrols the skies with their glider and fight
Nazi spies and gangsters on the homefront.
Breezy, a "typical aviation-minded American boy." He's tall and strapping
and well-muscled, and is quite knowledgeable about aircraft, especially
for a teenager.
William Collins, "Breezy's dad--a skilled aircraft mechanic!"
Wings West, a chunky boy who the stories mock because of his weight. (Admittedly,
he's fat--in his pilot's outfit he looks like he stuffed a haystack down
his front.) He is acknowledged as "a capable glider pilot," though.
Nails Nelson, "the patrol's newest recruit--reads all the books on aviation
he can find!"
Janice Jones, the very attractive blond who "has an intense interest in
flying--as well as in Breezy!" Both Wings and Nails have the hots for Janice,
but she only has eyes for Breezy.
