Flying Wild Alaska

Flying Wild Alaska

Meet the unconventional family that rules Alaska's most dangerous skies in the new 10-part series "FLYING WILD ALASKA", premiering on Discovery Channel Wednesdays at 9 PM ET/PT, beginning January 5, 2011. Operating their family-run airline, Era Alaska, the Tweto family battles 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, but where the roads end, life for the quirky Twetos begins. Wildly determined Jim runs his company with passion and looks to his tiny but fierce wife, Ferno, for support. She's cargo runner, dispatcher and mom to their two gregarious adult daughters, Ayla and Ariel, who also play a vital role in the operation. Year round, Jim and his family are motivated by the fact that the livelihoods of thousands of people depend on their business and employees every day. (Source: The Discovery Channel)

I really enjoyed watching "Flying Wild Alaska" another good show on Discovery! The Tweto family are very likeable, and the pilots and the risks they take are unbelievable! Makes me look forward to Friday night. Lets hope Discovery Channel will not over script this show like they did with "Storm Chasers" Wishing the Tweto family safe flights!! Read more
