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.
