Follows the unconventional Tweto family that rules Alaska's most dangerous skies. Operating their family-run airline, Era Alaska, they battle unforgiving Alaska weather and terrain to transport life's necessities to one of the most remote and extreme regions of America. With no freeway system for hundreds of miles, Era Alaska is the lifeline for the isolated rural inhabitants of the Bering Sea coastline. From champion snow dogs bound for the Iditarod to medicine for sick children to groceries for miners working on an operation on the North Slope, the goods that the intrepid pilots ship on any given day are crucial to everyday life.

The Tweto family operating their small airline, Era Alaska, shuttling people and cargo in the Alaskan north. Jim and Ferno Tweto run the airline with the help of their daughters Ayla and Ariel.
There are lots of good in this lesser known reality show. It's not about some manufactured conflict. It's about a family and the life up north. I did see the cute and goofy Ariel Tweto on Wipeout. She's learning to fly and this has a bit of flying with smaller planes. It has lots of northern culture. It lasted 3 short seasons and that is probably enough. In the end, there is a lack of conflict, competition, or bombastic characters that is the lifeblood of today's reality TV. This was a nice change of pace but needed much more drama to stay.
