Comments about this product:

Repeates too much...coming from a break repeats again what you just saw, 2 minutes ago, like you forgot what you just saw. A way of producers to extend a program without shooting the real necessary material. Great production work taking into consideration the weather. My DVD 1 was badly recorded...episode one stops at 32:02 since it cannot read from the DVD.

                      As an avid watcher of Flying Wild Alaska, I was stunned while watching "End of an Era" to hear that Flying Wild Alaska "has come to an end!" How can you do that? I need to know how Jim's retirement goes! I need to how all of the pilots are doing and what Ariel does next! Seriously, this show is so well done, and they portray all of the individuals in such an honest way, that it endears them to us who watch. I commend Discovery for their wonderful treatment of such an informative and entertaining subject. I only hope you make the final season available soon. Thanks!

                              Once again the Tweeto's and the crew show outsiders a look into working and living in rural Alaska. No whiners allowed here. Nice to see a family and company that works well together for a common goal. I do not care for the pathetic people in other reality shows as they are self absorbed, but the Tweeto's are the real deal!

                                  I have always loved anything about Alaska Bush pilots. This has a family run air service and more. It is perfect for the whole family and really lets you know what life is like in Alaska. Wish I had stayed there instead of coming home.

                                      We absooutely loved FLYING WILD ALASKA and the Tweto Family that own Era Alaska. This show gives a person a whole new perspective of what individuals do for a living to help out others in need of getting places when there are no roads todo it on.

                                      I was hooked on Flying Wild Alaska during season one. I now have both seasons on DVD and can view anytime I wish. The people, places and things on this show are phenomenal.
