After taking command of an intense airlift, and dealing with the ugliest Electra load he's ever seen, Scott takes a scary fall on the icy tarmac. City girl Christine moves to Yellowknife to give the unglamorous rampie life a shot, firebrand mechanic Chuck returns to the Buffalo hangar and immediately stirs the pot, while Joe helps out an old friend, 'Ice Road Trucker' Alex Debogorski.
Weighed down by the responsibility of training a new rampie, and struggling to get out of Joe's doghouse, DC-3 co-pilot Tyler gets a once in a lifetime opportunity to stunt fly in his Cessna 150 for a visiting film crew. Meanwhile another Buffalo co-pilot, Andrew, is up for a job with Cathay Pacific Airlines. The last time a pilot left, Joe took it personally. How will he react to the news that Andrew might be leaving?
When Yellowknife and the northern aviation community are rocked by three crashes in the space of a month, Joe places an extra emphasis on safety, which is why he only trusts himself to perform a dangerous-looking DC-3 stunt landing for a visiting film crew. While new rampie Ryan tries to hack it in Hay River, Toronto dental hygienist Christine visits Buffalo for a trial run on the ramp - and gets thrown into the DC-4 hot seat.
Engine troubles on the C-46 during the valley run force Devan to shut down an engine. High winds wreak havoc for Devan and his crew on another C-46 mission to help clean up an oil spill in the Northwest Territories. Scott trains on a CL-215 waterbomber and visits his mentor Arnie, then joins the waterbombing crews when Buffalo is called in to fight a massive fire in Alberta.
