True North Favourite: Arctic Air


Arctic Air by Ian Weir

One of my favourite Canadian TV shows is Arctic Air. The story centres on an airline based out of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The pilots encounter many adventures on their flying missions and there is never a dull moment at Arctic Air. The show becomes especially good as season one progresses and it is easy to get drawn into the storylines. Much of the show was actually shot in the Northwest Territories and the rugged landscapes shown are beautiful. This show has left me with a huge appreciation for bush pilots and has put the Northwest Territories near the top of the list of places I would like to visit!
