Flying Wild Alaska Greenlighted for a Second Season by Discovery Channel

Twetos-FlyingWildAlaska.jpgDiscovery Channel's wildly successful series Flying Wild Alaska has been greenlighted for a second season. The show debuted on January 14 of this year in record breaking fashion. The premier was the highest-rated new series launch in Discovery Channel's history.

Whew, what a relief. For the past eight weeks this show has been my kick-off to the weekend and although I was hopeful it would be back for another season, I had not seen confirmation until recently that it would return for a second season.

I have enjoyed getting a glimpse into the way of life of the bush pilots and the Tweto family. It seems I am not alone in my love for this show. Clark Bunting, President and General Manager of Discover Channel commented "Viewers have simply fallen in love with the quirky Tweto family and their intrepid team of pilots, and we're excited to see how much more they push the limits next season."

Ariel Tweto one of the stars on the show was a guest on Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show this past week. You can tell from the comments on this video that she is a crowd favorite.

Awesome! I'm a few episodes behind on the DVR but it's been a really enjoyable series so far.

Alaska,Truly a great state.Many years ago i received an invitation from the Alaska Tourust board,highlighting reasons why Alaska is a tourist destination beyond one's "wildest dreams"
Hopefully i shall one day fulfill that wish.
There has been quite a few exciteing,entertaining,educational and adeventure "reality" shows with the state of AK as the focus.

I was on hand viewing the Premier episode Season 2 of Flying Wild Alaska,(actually two Premiers of Alaskan based "reality TV",Gold Rush AK as well)

One of the many virtues that i find to be rather appealing and enjoyable about FWAK is the much applauded AVOIDANCE of haveing to rely on Drama that results from Clashing personalities and over inflated ego's and dysfunctional behaviour,Such types of drama seems to be what most reality TV shows relies heavily upon for rateings and appeal to certain audience demographics. I am sure the Tweto's and ERA have their fair share of operational personality conflicts and they do not allow that to take centre stage.

And it is very commendable to see the Pilots of ERA exhibiting professionalism and skills as Bush Pilots provideing a service to the people of Alaska and visitors alike,AND ALONG WITH The Discovery Chanell,Produces a show that is very entertaining,full of adventure and Drama that comes from the various situations that Many Alaska Bush pilots often encounter such as ( Pilots Sarah Fraher and Doug etc) high winds,low visibility ceilings and other scenarios faced every day by real-life pilots flying in Alaska and other such harsh environments

FWAK also provides us all whom find such topics educational and interesting,with glimpses into the culture and life of the Alaskan " indigenous" Eskimo culture of people...So those are my unsolicited sentiments about that Particular AK "reality" show,and i am sure other viewers of the series would be in agreement..LOOKING FORWARD TO A Season 3 with a lot more episodes..i hope
