Hopefully we'll get see it down here in the U.S.

Looks awesome, to bad it's a Canadian tv show. On a related note, some reality show producers followed Connie and Doug around with cameras last summer. They were considering making a reality TV show but decided not to.

Is anyone using a different VPN to watch the episodes over the internet from their website? If so, how?

Too bad that US pilots don't have either the experience or backbone to actually do this work. I have worked with these folks ... they are truely pilots cut from a different cloth. US pilots are too spoiled and lazy to actually work in the arctic.

Enough
The show is pretty good. Young guy's WWII aircraft for the most part (C46's & DC3's). I have many friends that have and do fly up in the great white north and love it. It is brutal at times with highs of -40c but many wouldn't do anything else.

Unfortunatly one big draw back - pay sucks on the whole!!

That looks like a good show. I don't know about the whole "film everything I do and put it on TV" though. The FAA would have a field day with you.

Wow. That's arrogance right there!

I think a lot of 135 cargo guys could be trained to do that kind of work, particularly those who have flown SP in the northern states. I don't know enough about the 121 world to venture a guess as to whether thay could "handle it" or not.

Don't let it raise your blood pressure, landlover, remember, it's a
tv show. The producers know that drama and conflict raise ratings,
so they add a healthy dose of unrealistic excitement (like all 'reality'
shows do) That said, it IS kind of neat. I remember seeing LaBaTa's
C-46 taking off and landing occasionally at Laredo, before it was destroyed by a tornado.
Those guys at Buffalo Air sure have cojones grandes, operating in those
temperatures.....my hat is off to them.
