Eyes in the skies, peeps! The semifinal round between Team Iceland, Team Cooper and Team Belgium is now underway. The fangs are out! Dogfight action, great action! Rarr-rarr-rarr!
― Dimitri Lousteau, the moment the dogfight begins[src]
Sly went over to the team hangar to suit up and prep his plane for the semifinals. Prepared for take-off, Sly was in the plane, positioned at the top of the ramp. Bentley first warned Sly to stay sharp, as he was still outnumbered, even though Iceland and Belgium were going to be at each other's throats. Sly showed no fear as he flew down the ramp and took off to the dogfighting arena, expressing his excitement in competing in the event.
Once at the arena, Sly was up against 25 planes.[note 1] Bentley provided some safety tips, while Dimitri gave commentary throughout the competition. Once Sly defeated all of his opponents, Dimitri declared Team Cooper's qualification for the finals.
