- "The Russians got bigger things to worry than your genitals, believe me."
- — Mike Toreno.
Toreno says he used Sweet as an excuse to get you to jobs for him. They aren't releasing him yet, but they are looking after him. Toreno needs Sweet alive as much as you do - apparently. After that last bit of work, there's a price on your head. Toreno needs you to start doing some real wet work.
Go to the abandoned airstrip in Verdant Meadows and buy it. It will cost you $80,000. If you don't have this amount of money, go out and earn it (or steal it). Once you have purchased the property, go into the office where you will see a red marker. Walk into it, and you'll receive a phone call from Toreno. You will now enter Flight School since you are going to have to learn to fly. Toreno has set out a series of tests for you. Access these tests via the television in front of you. You must prove that you know how to fly, if you are to continue working towards your brother's freedom. You must obtain a score of 70% or above to pass each test. For each test you pass, your flying skill is upgraded (that is, if you haven't already got 100% flying skill).
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Go to the abandoned airstrip and buy it
- This is the only mission, along with Jizzy, in which the player can save the game or do other missions during a mission (discounting Learning to Fly which, as a school, can be completed in bits and pieces). This is due to the necessity of having enough money to purchase the airstrip.
- This is the only mission where the player doesn't receives money from Mike Toreno as a reward.
The reward for this mission is increased Respect.
