Trivia

Ultra-Flight Laboratories featured here are indeed mentioned in the show, in To the Rescue (Part 3), when Gadget shows Screaming Eagle to other 'Rescue Rangers to be' and says "lt was an experimental model from the Ultra-Flight Laboratories..." It is left unknown whether she means human company producing model planes or rodent enterprise.

Chip has a dream in which the Rangers have a number of craft named "Rangerbird 1" through "5", modeled after those used by the Thunderbirds. They do have similar vehicles in PensacolaRanger's fanfic Rangerbirds are GO! This becomes less of a surprise when its sequel Pensacola Rangers crosses over with the Nowakverse.
