Watch Ice Pilots

Ice Pilots is a reality television show that is produced by the History Canada Channel. It follows a group of pilots and ground workers for the Buffalo Airline Company. The company is based in Yellow Knife Canada, and the show first started to air in 2009. The Buffalo Airline Company offers chartered flights to remote Canadian outposts. They deliver ferry passengers to locations that cannot be reached by road, and they also haul in a large amount of equipment to remote mining and drilling outposts.

Ice Pilots has followed several pilots, ground couriers, and managers over the course of its five seasons. It deals a lot with the nature of the type of persons who decide to work for a remote chartered airline company, the challenges they face, and how they interact with each other. The series also explored what happens to these persons over the course of several years.
