Storyline

Skyhawks, Inc. was a family-run air transport and rescue service based at San Marcos Field in Southern California, and headed by widower Mike "Cap" Wilson. Cap Wilson learned how to fly during World War II, during which he achieved the rank of Colonel. Cap's father, famed aviator Pappy Wilson, had been a World War I flying ace. A warm and encouraging father, Cap had 17-year-old fraternal twins named Steve and Carolyn. He also sponsored two foster kids: 14-year-old Baron "Red" Hughes and his 9-year-old sister Cynthia, usually referred to as "Cindy", though she was also nicknamed "Mugs". The Wilson crew also included Cap's girlfriend. Maggie McNally. Joe Conway was the Skyhawks' chief mechanic. The team saved troubled charter planes, rescued helicopter pilots, transported air freight, or ran secret government missions. San Marcos Field also was the home base of the Skyhawks' unscrupulous competitor, Buck Devlin, and his gang of pilots. Written by Cameron Iacono

Fly with us be a Sky Hawk
11 December 2004 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

The opening line of the theme song. It was a kid's cartoon but it had a message. One week it was pollution. The Wilsons

discovered a rival outfit hauling contaminated fish to market. When the pilots were confronted, they gave a lame excuse. "We didn't

know the fish was covered with oil." Really? Pappy Wilson, the family patriarch, was a World War I ace. His son, Mike, was the

head of Wilson Aviation. Mike's daughter was Caroline. There were two orphans who were the Wilsons' wards. They were Bobby and Cindy. At the end of the show, there were shorts. The shorts gave information about how to fly. As the other reviewer said, it's ironic that it was in a kid's cartoon. I loved this cartoon when I was little. I wonder if it's on video?
