The show was canceled due to complaints that the it was actually a series of 30 minute commercials for Mattel's line of Skyhawk toys. Interestingly, the complaints came from Topper Toys, a rival of Mattel. See more »
I love this cartoon. I was 7 when it was on. I never missed it! Watching it again, I notice how precise the details on the planes were (even the D/G says "Cessna"). That is a REAL 1969 Cessna 310P! I have several hundred hours in P models.
I also liked the flying advise at the end of each episode. Being a flight instructor also, it is accurate if somewhat abbreviated for young minds.
I wish someone did a complete series set of DVD's for this cartoon.
Thsi cartoon fed my flying addiction as a young lad. My dad was in the Army Air Corps (just like Cap Wilson) although as a mechanic.
Dad was able to fly with me several times before he passed. Dad always loved flying with me and watching me fly.
