Storyline

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.

Superb Series!
5 March 2011 | by (Indiana, United States) – See all my reviews

For anyone interested in flying, culture, science, geography, and just people, this is a must-see series. It is a broad portrayal of people who live in Alaska, their living conditions, opportunities, and challenges, all centered around the essential air transport operations of Alaskan life.

This series is a wonderful balance of beautiful cinematography, flying technique, Alaskan society and geography, human interaction, Alaskan cultural diversity and characteristics, family relationships, and technology.

Do yourself a favor and try watching this series. The series is not strictly sequential, so you can watch it in almost any order.
