The Case of the Brilliant Pupil is the fifth short story in the anthology Biggles Air Detective which was first published in May, 1950. By this time, Biggles was already a Detective Air-Inspector. His promotion took place in Another Job for Biggles which was serialised as Biggles in Arabia from February 1950, predating the Air Detective by 3 months.
Biggles investigates a strange case of a known criminal who is taking flying lessons, although he already has a licence.
