Captain Ben Fawcett has bought an unusual taxi and has begun a new service. The 'taxi' is a small Swiss aeroplane called a 'Pilatus Porter'. This wonderful plane can carry seven passengers. The most surprising thing about it, however, is that it can land anywhere: on snow, water, or even on a ploughed field. Captain Fawcett's first passenger was a doctor who flew from Birmingham to a lonely village in the Welsh mountains. Since then, Captain Fawcett has flown passengers to many unusual places. Once he landed on the roof of a block of flats and on another occasion, he landed in a deserted car park. Captain Fawcett has just refused a strange request from a businessman. The man wanted to fly to Rockall, a lonely island in the Atlantic Ocean, but Captain Fawcett did not take him because the trip was too dangerous.

机长福塞特买了一个不寻常的出租汽车,开始了一个新的服务。这辆出租汽车是一架小型瑞士飞机,叫"皮勒特斯·波特"。这架奇妙的飞机能载七名乘客。最令人惊奇的是,然而,是它能够在任何地方降落:雪,水,甚至刚耕过的田里。福塞特船长的第一名乘客是位医生,他从伯明翰飞往一个偏僻的村庄在山。此后,福塞特上尉空运乘客到过许多不寻常的地方。他把飞机降落在了一栋公寓楼的屋顶,在另一个场合,他降落在一个废弃的停车场。机长福塞特刚刚拒绝了一位商人的奇怪要求。这个人想要飞往罗卡尔岛,大西洋中的一个小岛,但福塞特机长没有带他因为这段旅程太危险了。
