We got a quick tip from a reader today that they have confirmed that the second season of Flying Wild Alaska will start airing on Nov 4 on the Discovery Channel.
Those of you, like us, who have enjoyed this window into areas of Alaska seldom showcased will get to see more via the Tweto family and their airline company Era Alaska. Getting a chance to view what many feel is a pretty darn realistic side of what we live with just about each time we travel in ‘bush’ Alaska seems to have been popular with a wide spectrum of the viewing public.
According to the posting on the Alaska Film Office website the show has also filed for a tax credit that the state offers to promote more filming in Alaska. According to the application the show created what was equal to two full time jobs for a period of 60 days.
The production reported $1,182,247 in Alaska spending. It’ll get more than one-third of that money back from the state in the form of tax credits totaling $398,917.
Principal photography on season one of the Bush pilot reality show lasted 60 days and the project created the equivalent of two full-time jobs, according to the application.
With the variety of aircraft they use and places they serve it appears the second season leaves plenty of room for more glimpses of life in Alaska.
