This new heart-pounding series follows the pilots of Wings of Eagles Aircraft Delivery in Wimauma, Florida as they push the limits of both planes and man, flying single engine aircraft across oceans, through hostile airspace and, most importantly, in weather conditions most pilots spend their lives avoiding. With the addition of large supplemental fuel tanks, WOE’s fearless pilots are able to increase their planes’ flying time from 4 hours up to 14 hours. While this enables them to tackle extreme distances without refueling, flying a plane filled with so much fuel presents its own challenges and dangers.
Throughout production, Spectrum crews flew around the world from Canada, Chile, El Salvador and Namibia to Kenya, Malta, Croatia, Egypt and Portugal capturing the pilots in every type of extreme weather condition. Tonight’s premiere features two back-to-back episodes, showcasing the team’s incredible travels.
