Outback Pilots

New Series
Wednesdays from 10 October at 8:30pm AEDT/NZ

Outback Pilots enters the extreme world of the “bush pilots” who risk their lives to help remote farmers, industries, and communities spread across the vast wilderness of the Australian outback. Suspended in mid-air, inches from high voltage power lines, these death-defying pilots have an incredibly tough job to do. From working on remote power line transmission towers and hovering just inches from the live wires, to providing 24-hour aeromedical emergency services to remote and regional residents, as well as fighting bushfires with thousands of litres of water or foam from above during Australia’s hot, dry summers. Out here only one thing matters: getting there and back alive.
