Flying Wild Alaska

Flying Wild Alaska

Meet the unconventional family that rules Alaska’s most dangerous skies. Operating their family-run airline, Era Alaska, the Tweto family battles unforgiving Alaska weather and terrain to transport life’s necessities to one of the most remote and extreme regions of America. With no freeway system for hundreds of miles, Era Alaska is the lifeline for the isolated rural inhabitants of the Bering Sea coastline, but where the roads end, life for the quirky Twetos begins. Wildly determined Jim runs his company with passion and looks to his tiny but fierce wife, Ferno, for support. She’s cargo runner, dispatcher and mom to their two daughters, Ayla and Ariel, who also play a vital role in the operation. Year round, Jim and his family are motivated by the fact that the livelihood’s of thousands of people depend on their business and employees every day. Battling -40F degree winters and hurricane-like winds for months on end, the intrepid pilots of Era Alaska are among the best in the world. Ranging from a professional skateboarder in search of ultimate freedom to a local Alaskan native who has grown up around this business his whole life, they combat big storms in small planes — a scenario only suited for the most experienced, especially with such precious cargo. From champion snow dogs bound for the Iditarod, to medicine for sick children, to groceries for miners working on the North Slope, Era Alaska transports a wide range of goods. Era Alaska was founded in the small city of Unalakleet with just one small plane and a service area of a few hundred miles. Today, the company has nearly 75 planes and destinations throughout the large state. Valued at millions, the airline handles everything from large, cross state commuter flights to tiny off-airport “bush” flights. Despite his company’s achievements, Jim refuses to relax for even an instant, because he knows that his community’s well-being depends on him.
