If you love sappy rom-coms (like Love at First Sight), then you’re in for a real treat.

Netflix’s newest film, Love Is in the Air, just premiered on September 28, and it’s already claimed the number one spot on the streaming service’s list of most-watched movies. (It’s currently ranked ahead of Force of Nature, The Machine, Spy Kids: Armageddon, Forgotten Love and, of course, Love at First Sight.)

The story follows a female seaplane pilot, Dana (Delta Goodrem), who spends her days in the tropics delivering mail and other supplies. She’s visited by a “bigwig” (Joshua Sasse) who’s assessing the company’s financial spending to determine whether Dana’s business should continue. The situation gets more complicated when she starts to fall for her potential enemy.

The movie was directed by Adrian Powers (A Royal in Paradise), who also co-wrote the screenplay alongside Caera Bradshaw (Dive Club) and Katharine McPhee (yes, that one).

Netflix’s official synopsis reads, “A fiercely independent pilot fighting to keep fer family business afloat starts to fall for the man sent by corporate to ground her operation forever.”

Sounds right up our alley.
