Arctic Air is a one-hour adventure series set in the booming Arctic, about a maverick airline and the unconventional family who runs it. That world is Yellowknife, and the High Arctic that lies beyond. The vast terrain and unforgiving climate mean the stakes are sky-high. This is life without a safety net.
Krista is returning after three months of travelling in Southeast Asia. She has been profoundly affected by the experience, and is determined to make fundamental changes in her life -- a decision that will have important consequences for those closest to her. Meanwhile, Mel is taking stock of his life and wondering if it's time to hand the company reins to someone else and get back to his first love: flying. Bobby is finding himself drawn all the more closely to Petra and Connor, with shocking and unexpected consequences when his enemies attempt to follow through on their threat against his life. And there's the potential for new romance -- and new adventure -- in Blake's life, when police Constable Lindsay Gallagher transfers to Yellowknife.
Arctic Air starts with flyers, and there's always the thrill of adventure pulsing through it. But it's ultimately the story of a community. It's a series about all of us - about who we are and how we live - refracted through the unique dramatic prism of the Canadian North.
Each Arctic Air episode will involve at least one flying mission - the challenges, exhilaration's and frequently the life-and-death stakes of Northern flying are ever present in our storytelling. The pilots and crew will often be stretched to the limits of their nerve and resourcefulness, as they deal with savagely unpredictable weather and precious little margin for error. But the stakes are high for many others as well. The company provides a lifeline to individuals and whole communities, isolated across the far-flung Canadian North. Routine flights for Arctic Air pilots involve delivery of life-giving medical supplies, or an emergency generator for a faraway village that is stranded with no heat and light.
