I offer similar comments regarding Volume Two of this series.
Larry Pennell and the late Ken "Festus" Curtis played Ted McKeever and Jim Buckley, the owners of a Skydiving School and "Skydivers for Hire" outfit, usually going "where no aircraft or vehicle can go," to perform rescues or make "emergency medical deliveries" to those folks who were isolated.
I have to give the writers of this half-hour series a lot of credit, being able to think up new situations every week, where only the skills of an experienced skydiver could "save the day."
Many kids like me (a 17-year-old) took up this sport, based only on watching this action-packed show, where, as Larry Pennell said at the beginning, "This is the most dangerous show on television, with everything being filmed exactly as it happens." There was NO trick photography of any kind. What you saw was what really happened.
If you let your own kids or grandkids watch this, expect them to want to start taking up Skydiving as a sport, just as I did.
What I did not like is the seller mailed the discs in a non-padded envelope.Luckily the discs are also protected by a decorative box that houses the plastic DVD holders Thus far have to seen any damage to the discs. I've finished the first three.

I was very pleased with the quality and content. I quickly ordered season 2 as well.
Engaging stars , Larry Pennell and Ken (Festus) Curtis and exciting plots. Well done for its time. If you're a fan of early 60's TV, this is a great little series.
