There is no Next Episode of Dangerous Flights planned.
Former car salesman Cory Bengtzen launches a used airplane delivery business with two inaugural trans-global "ferry flights." Cory's cowboy pilots brave wild weather, take on dangerous airstrips and cover distances that these small planes were never meant to fly. He hires mechanics to rig the planes with extra fuel tanks but engine problems, fuel leaks and just bad luck threaten to put his new business on a collision course with disaster.
Cory's new business runs into bad weather when his pilots walk off the job and he's forced to take the controls. But that's just half of Cory's nightmare. He's got two new pilots island hopping a Bonanza to Brazil with a hurricane on their tail. They'll need a lot more than luck to tackle these odds.
After a rocky start in Macapa, Brazil, ferry flier entrepreneur Cory Bengtzen and copilot Kerry cross the Amazon rainforest. But engine trouble and power struggles make the last few legs the bumpiest yet. While up in Canada's Northwest Territories, veteran pilot Randy McGehee readies a UN cargo plane for a 12,500 kilometre trek to war-torn South Sudan.
Cory Bengtzen hires seasoned pilots, Pete and Brad, to jockey a King Air from the UK to the U.S. But Pete, a professional air racer, is thrown off his game after witnessing a tragic accident at the Reno Air Races. He needs to regain his nerve for the dangerous North Atlantic crossing ahead. South of the equator, Cory and Randy hopscotch along a string of Carribean islands until a tense night landing threatens to trip them up.
Kerry stretches his wings when veteran pilot Marcio offers him the copilot seat in a sleek Phenom jet. The duo must ferry this jet 19,000 kilometres, from Australia to the U.S., skirting North Korean airspace with pit stops in Russia. On the other side of the globe, Cory and Randy set a thirty-year-old Bonanza on course for the darkest parts of the Amazon Jungle.
Pete is a test pilot and professional air racer while his copilot Brad has flown military operations in South America and Afghanistan - but these two are no match for a 32-year-old Cheyenne with a really bad attitude. Down south, a fellow prop jockey helps pilots Kerry and Stu navigate their way out of a Brazilian made bureaucratic maze.
Pete and Brad just can't catch a break. The old Cheyenne is one major headache after another and now they're running out of patience and time. Halfway around the world, Kerry and Stu battle storms, engine problems and a nasty stomach bug to ferry a single-engine Cirrus 19,000 kilometres from Singapore to the U.S.
When pilots walk, the boss gets his hands dirty. Cory and Randy are forced to take on the old run-down Cheyenne. More than 6,000 kilometres of rocky air lay ahead – from Russia to the Philippines. While high above a burning desert, pilots Stu and Kerry run into mechanical problems... in a single-engine plane...
