The original CBS incarnation of Airwolf was canceled after only three seasons due to declining ratings and star Jan-Michael Vincent's growing problem with alcoholism. Universal Studios produced this "sequel" series on a shoestring budget in Canada, in order to provide enough episodes for both shows to be sold into syndication.

The budget was so small, the production couldn't afford the titular helicopter. All scenes of the actors interacting with Airwolf used a prop mock-up of the aircraft. Reedited footage of Airwolf in flight from the original series did the rest.
