Perfect idea for the aviation and the non aviation people though ..
21 January 2014 | by (Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

It's one of the most brilliant shows I've ever seen, I really can't stop watching it, Perfect for all people (whether they liked airplanes or flying or not) . Though I think it could've been better For example : The acting in the early episodes and seasons is kind of bad .. There is a lot of problems in it .. You can hear the actors saying v1 and all of a sudden you see the aircraft taking off ! The cockpits they used in some of the early seasons is bad. The sounds of the Flaps, Gear..etc is actually too bad sometimes sadly. I wish they putted some real CVR Recordings or ATC Recordings. Other than that it's an awesome show, It really make me feel that nowadays flying an airplane is safe, there is some good use of some soundtracks in it. Well made episodes and interviews with the crew and people on board. There is some rare footage of some aircrafts that you can't find easily in the web. I would love to give this a 10 out of 10, but there is some bas stuff that is holding me sadly. I just get excited when I think that i'm going to see an episode of it, though some stories are really bad, what's actually nice that if you never saw the episode and skipped the intro a little bit you will never know what's going to happen.
