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

still burning a candle......
3 November 2006 | by vzewik2See all my reviews

Carolyn was my first crush as a kid! i loved this show,watched it religiously and got very upset if it was ever preempted. one of my favorite things about Skyhawks was that it was so realistic!{no magic,super-powers or talking animals!}just competent pilots with good planes that could be injured or killed if they were,nt careful. the characters were so real that i felt like i could actually fly over to San Marcos airport and actually meet them{and fall in love with one for sure!}cap was a fine leader,and all others were very professional airmen. Carolyn was pretty,brave,and man,could she fly! i have made a large collection of models of all a/c appearing in the show along with others{corporate jets,larger helicopters,and heavy jetliners}in skyhawks colors indicating"moving up in the world" and becoming a big operation. to fellow fans-some episodes can be obtained at toontracker on VHS/DVD,and i would pay a good price{in gold!}to have the entire series. one of my most cherished childhood memories,i would be proud to fly with them anytime,i still burn a warm candle in my soul for Carolyn and always will. keep em flying! AC,captain,COAir
