Arctic Air is a television series that premiered on the Discovery Channel in 2012. The show is set in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, and follows the lives of a group of individuals who operate and work for Arctic Air, a small airline that specializes in flying people and cargo in and out of the far reaches of the Arctic. The show features an ensemble cast, including Adam Beach, Pascale Hutton, Kevin McNulty, and Stephen Lobo, among others.

The show begins with Bobby Martin (Adam Beach), the owner of Arctic Air, trying to keep his airline afloat amidst a tough economic climate. He is joined by his business partner, Mel Ivarson (Kevin McNulty), who serves as the company's CFO, and their pilot, Krista Ivarson (Pascale Hutton), who also happens to be Mel's daughter.

As the series progresses, the focus shifts to the different characters and their various personal and professional struggles. One of the main plotlines involves Bobby's relationship with his estranged half-brother, Ronnie Dearman (Stephen Lobo), who is also a pilot for Arctic Air. The two have a complicated history due to a traumatic event that occurred in their childhood, and their relationship is strained as they both try to move forward.

Other storylines involve Krista's romantic relationship with a local police officer, Dev (Omari Newton), and her struggle to balance her personal life with her responsibilities as a pilot. Another character, Blake Laviolette (John Reardon), joins the airline as a new pilot and quickly becomes a romantic interest for Bobby's ex-girlfriend, Astrid Poulsen (Lucia Walters), who also happens to be a rival airline owner.

Throughout the series, the characters face a variety of challenges in their work for Arctic Air, including piloting dangerous missions in harsh weather conditions, dealing with difficult customers and cargo, and navigating the tense relations between various factions in the Arctic. There are also themes of environmentalism and the impact of industrialization on the region, as well as glimpses into the unique culture and traditions of the people who live in the North.

Arctic Air was praised for its portrayal of the struggles faced by those who live and work in the Arctic, as well as its nuanced and diverse cast of characters. The show's portrayal of the complex relationships between the characters, as well as its exploration of important themes, helped to make it a critically acclaimed and beloved addition to the Discovery Channel's lineup.
