Discovery Channel Takes to the Alaskan Skies in ‘Flying Wild Alaska’

It’s all in the family on the new Discovery Channel series Flying Wild Alaska, premiering tonight at 9pm ET/PT.  The series follows the Twetos, the first family of the Alaskan skies, as they operate Era Alaska, an airline that transports everyday necessities to one of the most remote and extreme parts 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, the goods that the pilots ship on any given day are crucial to daily life. (In one episode, they even have to deliver a toilet seat!)

Get to know the intrepid Tweto Family &mash; Jim, his wife Ferno, and daughters Ariel and Ayla — and read more about the show here. And check out a sneak peek below!
