What a great overview of the aviation world - from ultralights all the way up to the big iron! We need more programs like this to instill the excitement of aviation into the non-flying public! This is a great series because they have topics that are of interest to all levels of the flying (and non-flying) community.

My only negative about the series would be the repetition of the same video clips throughout the different segments. Hopefully, in Seasons 2 & 3 they'll get more video so they won't have to duplicate as much :-)

The series is written for those interested in aviation, and explains more about general aviation than the general public usually has available. Those involved in aviation first hand might want to delve a little deeper, but the stories are paced quickly, usually touching 3 topics or story-lines per episode. If you are used to the typical reality slog of 40 minutes of hype and 3 minutes of content, you will not find that here. If you walk away from this show in progress, then you miss actual content. Good then that it is available on Amazon so you can control the playback.

For most of us flying is fighting our way through large busy airports on to overcrowded and cramped airliners. The Aviators takes one to the small general aviation air[orts and focuses on people who fly be cause it is fun and exciting. You will see wonderful flying machines that you will see nowhere else. Forget about putting your tray table and seat in an upright position, just settle in and have a good time.

I have a life long interest in aviation and it is hard to find shows dedicated to just aviation. This show covers many different aspects of aviation from small aircraft to jumbo jets and the people who fly them. I was very pleased to find this show and if you have any interest in aviation at all, I know you will enjoy it also.

If you love flight and wish you were a pilot, you should take the plunge! But, while you are slogging through the training this show can help keep you motivated. Learning to fly is easy, doing it right and safely is hard. This is a real look into aviation from real pilots so there is very little "fluff".

Nice format of little pieces of flying info. Great for those not fully into flying but have the interest.

Put wings on it and I am a fan. This was a good introduction to the series and anchored with a rather lightweight story about the biggest airshow in the world, EAA's Airventure in Oshkosh, WI.

Great pics of airplanes but the interviews are a little bland. A really good 'fill-in' show for those times when you only have a short few minutes to spare.
I am not an airplane aficionado so those of you who are may find this show absolutely extraordinary! I do hope that is the case.
The show is supposed to be streamed in 4K but there are only a few (and I mean a just a few) instances where that proposition seems actually to be a true statement. The picture on NetFlix's Murdoch Mysteries is much more like 4K and is only streamed in 1080p! Maybe its that better cameras and lenses were used in its production ...I dunno...

Does this series have English subtitles for the hearing impaired?
Nope it does not have closed captioned for the deaf viewer. Shame on them
