This is great news! I am one who has been writing letters and sending messages to my cable company, to Discovery and National Geographic, and to the community television authorities for over a year. I am delighted to see that we finally will get to see Ice Pilots NWT here in the USA.

I've posted an alert on all our local pilot forums.

My wife and I agree that the first two episodes have been entertaining but a little disturbing. The constant equipment breakdowns at some point make one wonder just exactly how safe the airline is. Broken magnetos, seized engines, inoperable landing gear. Sure, those are all part of keeping a vintage fleet flying, but a steady diet of that gets a little old. I hope we get to see more than just a continual stream of maintenance problems.

Re the large number of breakdowns... My first thought would be that the show producers are focussing on the the dramatic stuff. All the things that work the way they're supposed to are not that "interesting".

They don't call them "freight dogs" for nothing. Long hours, hard work, and s*** for pay.
