Kal, Ariel, and their new classmates start to settle into their daily routine. As the cherry blossoms take flight in the passing wind, so do the youngsters after their school’s opening ceremony. There are three choices for the students of Cadoques High School – there are those who choose not to specialize, those who work to become flight mechanics, and then those who work towards the goal of becoming pilots, to help defend the floating island on the way to its destination. Kal and his sister, as well as those who are training alongside them, all have their reasons for choosing the pilot’s life, and these reasons often seem to override the class boundaries that are already beginning to rear their ugly heads among the students.
