ARCTIC AIR is a character driven, one hour dramatic adventure series about a group of renegade pilots who fly small bush planes and huge WWII propplanes on daily missions in the North. It's a world of wild extremes and...展开contrasts unlike anywhere else. ARCTIC AIR has the thrill of adventure pulsing through it. It is about community and family. The series focuses on who we are and how we live - refracted through the unique dramatic prism of the Canadian North.
ARCTIC AIR begins with an airline and the people who work for it, with their stories growing to include their families and the community of Yellowknife. In addition to the lead characters, each year a fresh crop of new recruits will arrive in Yellowknife, drawn from everywhere around the world. Almost none of these new recruits have any real notion of what they are getting themselves into, and more than a few get right back on the next plane south. Those who stick around discover that the effort required to stay in Yellowknife will be nearly super-human. But the ones who last - they're in it for the adventure of a lifetime.
