- Omni Film’s Ice Pilots NWT Season Three premieres on Wednesday, October 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on History Television
Vintage warplanes, challenging conditions, and maverick pilots on dangerous missions – Ice Pilots NWT, the hit docu-series, is taking off for a bigger-than-ever third season. Tune in for 13 new one-hour episodes featuring the wild adventures of renegade Arctic airline Buffalo Airways, and the determined crew that risks everything to haul passengers and cargo in the unforgiving North. Ice Pilots NWT Season Three premieres on Wednesday, October 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on History Television (please check local listings).
As Season Three of Ice Pilots NWT unfolds, young pilots Gord and Sean face a terrifying loss of oil pressure inflight in the high Arctic, Adam travels to a military station at the top of the world and Devan struggles with the sudden failure of the C-46’s hydraulic controls while on approach. Also this season, the vintage C-46 faces extinction due to a growing scarcity of parts, new senior manager Duane Hicks stirs up a storm by pushing to modernize Buffalo, Joe butts heads with his sons, crusty mechanic Chuck Adams reaches the end of his rope, and a new golden boy shakes up the rampie roster.
