Fly along with one of Canada’s fastest growing, Indigenous owned airlines and watch as their diverse flight crews mount emergency medical rescue missions in some of the most challenging flying conditions in the world
Northern Air Rescue transports you intimately inside the world of Manitoba’s oldest and only 100% Indigenous owned medical evacuation company, “Missinippi Airways”. In each half hour episode, we fly along with their blended team of Indigenous and non-Indigenous pilots, paramedics, and grounds crew as they embark on air ambulance missions into remote northern communities. With our cameras embedded inside Missinippi Airways, we come to know the lovable real life characters who fly through often 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, see how Missinippi’s female Indigenous pilots are shaking up this once male dominated industry. Grounding the story in each TV episode, we fly along on one medivac, rescue, or other challenging flight mission. 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 rapidly expanding northern airway.
So, fasten your seat belt and fly along with “Northern Air Rescue” – an exciting and heart warming RealWorld adventure docuseries.
