Fly inside Canada’s fastest growing, Indigenous owned airline to see what reconciliation looks like as northern Manitoba’s Missinippi Air responds to lifesaving rescue missions in some of the most challenging flying conditions in the world.
Missinippi Air is a TV and Web series that transports you intimately inside the world of Manitoba’s fastest growing and only Indigenous owned airline, “Missinippi Airways”. In each half hour episode, we fly along with their blended team of Indigenous and non-Indigenous pilots, nurses and grounds crew as they embark on lifesaving air ambulance (medevac) missions into remote northern communities. With our cameras embedded inside Missinippi Air and in the lives of lovable characters who comprise their core staff, Missinippi Air lets Canada see what reconciliation looks like. Flying through hostile weather conditions, 365 days a year, Missinippi’s emergency flight missions demand a total team effort, irrespective of race, culture or gender. On TV, then more deeply on the Web, we’ll see how Missinippi’s young, passionate and empowered female Indigenous pilots are shaking up this male dominated industry. Grounding the story in each TV episode, we fly along with them on challenging emergency, rescue, cargo and other flight missions, from start to finish. In the sky and on the ground, supporting storylines take us inside the lives of Missinippi’s pilots, management and staff, to see how they overcome a myriad of obstacles for this expanding northern airway. So, fasten your seat belt and get ready to fly Missinippi Air – an exciting and heart-warming doc series that blends the best of ‘Ice Pilots’ with a real life ‘North of Sixty’, in an honest, heroic and entertaining multi-season format.
