Ice Pilots NWT just announced it will be airing for a second season. The hit reality show featuring Northern Pilots has become the History Channels highest rated show, beating out Ice Road Truckers.
Some Yellowknife residents may have noticed that they are indeed already filming the second season. I have seen some tweets about it:
I have not written about the show since before it had even aired. During that time I may have been a little harsh on what I thought the show might be. After seeing some of the episodes and the effort the team is making over the Social Networking sites I think they are really doing well.
Before the show aired, I thought it would be over exaggerated and fake. Being from the north, I don’t like when that happens. Thankfully it has been a pretty decent show, and definitely a hit among Yellowknife residents. It is always fun seeing your home town being featured in a TV show. Working with any kind of machinery in the -30 to -40 weather can be a pain, so kudos to the pilots and ground crew that not only work in it, but also fly in it.
