A nail-biting tour through the north alongside TV's legendary ice pilots Based on the top-rated series now airing on History Channel and Global TV in Canada, and in eleven other countries around the world, The Ice Pilots follows a group of pilots in Yellowknife and the extraordinary adventures of the most unorthodox flyboys on Earth. Renegade Arctic airline Buffalo Airways defies the cold and the competition by using WWIIiGBP?era propeller planes to haul vital fuel, supplies and passengers to remote outposts across the world's last great wilderness: northern Canada. From rookie pilots trying to earn their wings in sometimes hellish conditions to vintage planes that flew over Normandy on D-Day, The Ice Pilots brings its readers on an engaging romp through Arctic skies. The intrepid Michael Vlessides braves bone-chilling temperatures, treacherous landings and iconic owner "Buffalo" Joe McBryan's famous temper to capture behindiGBP?theiGBP?scenes stories about the ice pilots, the crew, the passengers and the communities they serve. Weaving in history about bush pilots, plane crashes and the north, he has crafted an entertaining, informative narrative about aviation, the lifeline of this remote world.
