A few of the best episodes:

The Doctor needs help
#1 - Shadow of the Hawke (Part 1 & 2)
In this two part premiere episode, Michael Archangel, project director for the CIA, enlists Vietnam Vet Stringfellow Hawke and Dominic Santini (best friend of Hawke's departed father who raised Hawke from his youth) to recover "Airwolf." Airwolf, a completely state-of-the-art helicopter that has become an effective tool in the Mid-Eastern struggle, is now in Khaddafi's hands in Libya. Hawke retrieves it by the end of the episode, though not without personal loss. He refuses to turn it over to the government, however, till he receives information about his brother who is missing in action in Vietnam
#3 - Daddy's Gone A Hunting
Stringfellow Hawke goes undercover as an exchange pilot to prevent an old friend from turning Airwolf over to the Russians, and prevents an act of treason as well as saves a friend from what could only be a fatal mission.
#6 - One Way Express
Hawke and Dominic are set up to take the fall in a robbery of gold bullion from a train -- they are hired as stunt men for a movie about a "great train robbery" that turns out to be real
#7 - Echos From The Past
Hawke awakens from heavy sedation to be told that Dominic is dead and that his long-lost brother has been rescued from Vietnam -- all of which turns out to be a ruse to uncover the location of Airwolf. The plot is foiled by the combined skills of Dominic and Archangel
#13, Sweet Britches
The premiere of the second season of Airwolf introduces a new series regular, the feisty helicopter pilot, Caitlin O' Shannessy, who is known as "Sweet Britches." During the course of the episode Hawke becomes hunted prey in an African Hunt Club reserve while in search of a friend who escaped from the county jail. The episode ends with Caitlin going in search of the elusive Hawke
#14, Firestorm
Hawke teams up with an alcoholic ex-flier with a fear of flying, after Dominic is injured, to prevent an extremist, ex-General from launching a personal nuclear missile towards Moscow and starting WW3
#15, Moffet's Ghost
The "ghost" in the title refers to the spirit of the brilliant yet disturbed Charles Moffet, the developer of Airwolf, which manifests itself after his death through a programmed timer that sets off attacks by Airwolf on any aircraft in its range. With a secret mission pending, Hawke and Santini must exorcise this ghost
#16, The Truth About Holly
Hawke helps Dominic rescue his niece Holly from the dangerous drug kingpin, Ed Aarons. However, Dominic later finds out that Holly is actually suffering from mental illness and needs to be hospitalized for her own safety. After a faulty landing during a dangerous stunt and then dodging missiles in mid-air, copter flyer Caitlin O'Shannessy acquires a well deserved spot on the Santini Air team
#17 - The Hunted
An offer Dominic can't refuse has the Santini Air team up in arms. While Dominic is considering the offer, Hawke and the others are busy uncovering the truth of the matter. Hawke's investigation discovers the true motive of the business men. They want to take over the Airwolf
#18 - Sins Of the Past
Home sweet home, isn't the case, when Dominic returns to the Virgin Islands, a place he once called home. Upon his arrival, Dominic learns of his daughter Lylah's murder and is taken into custody as a prime suspect. Despite specific orders from Archangel not to get involved, Hawke flys back to the island to help clear his friend's name and find the real murderer. After an extensive investigation, Hawke discovers the connection between Lylah's murder and the island's new casino facility. The murderer (casino owner) is brought to the forefront and exposed before the local people and authorities. Dominic is released from jail and once again there is sunshine in paradise
#19 - Fallen Angel
Airwolf flies abroad to free the Archangel from East Germany/KGB captivity. Early in the episode Hawke and Dominic once again survive a stunt crash, but this time Dominic isn't so lucky. Although Dominic is lying powerless in his hospital bed, he manages to support the rescue team by providing Hawke and Caitlin with the perfect rescue plan. Archangel is freed and everyone gets away safely

What's the difference between a pilot and an air traffic controller?
If a pilot screws up, he crashes. If an air traffic controller screws up, the pilot crashes.
