I really miss this show.

Very interesting to get to know the Tweto family and learn more about both flying and life in Alaska.

As a piot I know how hard it is to get good flying job, it's a lot of very hard work.

I love the show and own DVDs for seasons one and two. I really would like to have season three on DVD. I know old way... but then my life will then be complete.

I love the scenery of flying above Alaska and running a regional airline. I really miss this show. It was the only show that I would plan to be in front of the diodes for.

I am glad for the Tweato family, they did not go all Hollywood and are just good people. They really became members of the family and you genuinely cared for them. It is what reality TV should be. Their lives are full enough of danger, they didn't need much help from producers. What happened to all the aircraft series? There are a lot of pilots out here that crave the stuff.

The moment we found this TV show we were hooked. It was fascinating to look inside the airline business, but the people they choose for this series are awesome. You will totally fall in love with the Tweto family and root for Ariel to obtain her pilot's license. I'm sad this series ended so soon. But, the final episode explains everything and good for Jim Tweto's retirement. It's a guy and girl's show. It's one of the f-e-w TV shows that both my husband and I watch.

This show is definitely worth watching. The people are fun (especially Ariel), Alaska is beautiful and you really get a unique look at the state through the travels and lives of the pilots and Tweto family.

Check it out. You'll love it.

My wife, who does not like planes per say, and I are hooked on this show. We know that we're watching some of the same flying challenges experienced by the pilots over and over again, but it doesn't matter because these are real people, living real lives, and that produces real drama. I hear that Jim Tweto negotiated into the contract his control over the show's content - good for him, it worked. We've watched other Discovery Channel reality shows based in Alaska that have been so over-the-top that we quit watching them - how much can you live "off the grid" when you're 10 miles from a town with a gas station, hardware and grocery stores, what an insult to our intelligence. But Flying Wild Alaska is real life in Alaska, and we're grateful that it was aired. We wish the Tweto family well in their future and hope that life in western Alaska benefits from the show's exposure. Hopefully, the Discovery Channel learned somethings from their experience with the Tweto family too. Well done!

My wife and I watched all of these programs on TV. We love the Tweto family. They seem like really nice, down-to-earth people. The shows are an insight as to what life would be like in remote towns in Alaska. There is a good mix of travel, humor, and suspense. You also get an insider's view of what life would be like as a bush pilot in Alaska. We bought the "cloud" version so we can watch all of the shows again.

Recently our grandson went for a flight in a small plane, thanks to his scout troop. He instantly became a fan of small airplanes. So we bought the DVD set for him as a Christmas present. He's going to love them!

Great Series, I have watched seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix over and over, was glad to get Season 3 on Amazon live stream. Not a big fan of reality TV, but this series is wonderful, definitely a must watch. Too bad it ends here.

We rarely know so little about what life is like for our fellow human beings in the many parts of our United States we do not travel to. This series not only shows you interesting information about flying, but about the lives of the bush pilots and the indigenous folk.
