Aviation TV Shows

Hello everyone! Today, I bring you a topic on aviation TV shows. Now, some people might think that aviation is not a popular subject for tv broadcasters to cover. But over the last nearly 70 years, there’s been over 100 TV shows covering some sort of topic related to aviation. Some shows have come to be very popular at least here in the US. A couple of those shows are: Airplane Repo (2010) and Air Disasters (2011) If you know a tv show that still airs today, please add it to the list below.

Air Crash Investigators. I think it’s on National Geographic


Airplane Repo was a great one. Still remember the episode of the private jet in Florida.


Ultimate Airport Dubai? National Geographic
Aswell as Bush Pilots
Though I think that may be South African exclusively.


Terror in the skies was a good one back in 2013

Airplane Repo is fake. a friend of ours the repo dude asked him if he could “repo” his plane they set up a time and place then he flew it to another nearby airport then gave it back.

It is a wiki. I accidentally edited not to be for about 30 seconds. It should work now.
