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 »
One of the "shorts" this show had was one of the SH characters giving aviation tips to its (presumably) young viewers. Info on aviation weather, license ratings oxygen requirements at altitude ect. Seemed to assume its viewers aspired to become flyers.
A lot of airplane shows & movies seem to have been made by somebody who doesn't know an airplane from a roller skate.They sometimes have pseudo-technical jargon that's almost tatamount to jibberish. Almost like just an attempt to sound technical with enough jargon to indicate they heard some genuine terms, but using them in a way akin to Charlie Sheen/Ditch Brody's attempt at Russian in Terminal Velocity. I mean the part where Brody's being awarded by the Russians & saying "The busses don't work here I'm an @&$ h01e" I think there's some tendancy to assume genuine aeronautical terms would whiz over people's heads.
It was ironic to see a kid's cartoon seem to almost lead the way in bridging the gap between aviation & the viewers of a show about the same. A lead few aviation dramas seemed to have followed since.
