|This article is about a/an episode in Choujin Sentai Jetman.|
Flap Your Wings! Aviators! (はばたけ！鳥人よ Habatake! Chōjin yo) is the fifty-first and final episode of Choujin Sentai Jetman. It is the controversial conclusion to Jetman's four-episode endgame.
As Radiguet ascends to an unstoppable final form, the Jetman must figure how to finally defeat him in order to end the interdimensional threat forever!
Jet Icarus is the first robot called in to tackle Radiguet. They're fighting a losing battle when Jet Garuda arrives, piloted by Aya. The two robots form together and the odds improve, but they are still losing. They call in Tetraboy. The little blue robot punches Radiguet in the back, and as his giant monster-self turns, the Jetmen see a raw, gaping wound. It is the injury from when Maria stabbed him. The robots separate. Ryu stays in Jet Garuda. Radiguet tears one arm off of Jet Icarus. Jet Garuda catches him by both arms and Ryu orders his companions to stab Radiege through his wound. They protest, knowing this action will destroy Garuda and possibly cause Ryu's death. When they finally obey, Radiguet is destroyed. A slow, painful loss of blood, then a huge explosion as his form loses its integrity. The robots all go down.
With the Vyram dead (or permanently institutionalized as in Tranza's case), the Jetmen go back to living the life of normal humans. Three years later, Ako is a rising singing star, Raita has married his childhood sweetheart, Ryu and Kaori are marrying each other and Gai has become a successful businessman. While he is out buying flowers for his friends' wedding, Gai stops a mugger from stealing a woman's purse. But the mugger stabs Gai with a small knife. The wedding ceremony over, all guests come outside for photos and farewells. Ryu finds Gai sitting on a bench. Gai looks worn and exhausted, says it's because he overworked yesterday. They get their picture taken together, and Ryu goes off to join his wife and the others. Kaori asks, "Isn't Gai coming?" Ryu says, "He's very tired." Kaori and Gai exchange reassuring smiles across the distance. Ryu sees Rie's ghost one last time, smiling and waving farewell to him. Gai dies on the bench.

- This being the last episode, it has a different ending while the end theme is the same. The clips shown reflected the Jetmen over the series as opposed to the clips used in the regular ending
- The Final scene of the ending is also the eyecatch used for the series.
- Gai is the first Sentai hero to die without a reason (in previous all Sentai series, the reason of the death usually the actor leaving the show). This is followed by Burai, who dies because the producers of Super Sentai wanted to teach children that even heroes can die.
- Two of the suit actors appear in acting roles in this final episode:
- A trailer for the succeeding series, Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger as well as a 'next time' trailer for it's first episode, was shown at the end of this episode.

He is also the representative for Choujin Sentai Jetman.
- Interestingly, Rika Kishida who portrays Kaori Rokumeikan is also to be included as one of the new guest host along with Toshihide Wakamatsu and Ei Hamura making both White Swan and Black Condor serving as representatives of the same Sentai series. But she cannot join the 2017 charity event due to conflict schedules and is yet to become the guest host in the next upcoming charity event.
