Whoever wrote this episode must have been pretty limited in their familiarity with Green Lantern. The fullness of their knowledge must have been "he has a ring that can make anything." Hence, rather than green constructs he just created an actual helicopter out of thin air... which is handy if you happen to need to transport a whale.
It was fun to see Hal Jordan in his first Super Friends outing even if his ultimate act was to create a YELLOW life raft. At least he saved those miners.
