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

Sky Hawks
6 February 2006 | by tonali_iiiSee all my reviews

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.
