Description Edit | History

[From the Winter 1982 Activision catalog:]

Designed by Bob Whitehead. A devilishly dangerous air race! In your effort to break the speed record, you'll bank around pylons, dodge tree tops and zoom through passing clouds. Look out! Hot air balloons dead ahead! Sky Jinks has all the chills and spills of an old time air race. Just remember: There's no speed limit in the sky!

[From the back of the box:]

CONCEIVED AND DESIGNED BY BOB WHITEHEAD
FOR ONE PRECISION PILOT AT A TIME.

What a beautiful day for the World Championship of Air Races. But, alas! Your mortal enemy, dastardly Dumont Doolittle, has cunningly arranged for a hot air balloon rally to float directly across your flight path.

Don't let Dumont's high jinks keep you grounded! Gun your P41 to full throttle. Zoom across the lush, green fields. Careen precariously around pylons. Shave the very tips of trees, and snicker in delight as you dodge those bothersome balloonists.

Eat your heart out Doolittle! The Thompson Trophy is within reach -- as you soar under the clouds, and up, up into the record books with -- Sky Jinks by Activision!

[From the instruction manual:]

The object of Sky Jinks is to race your P41 through the pylon course, in the shortest possible time, without hitting pylons, trees or balloonists.
