Arctic Aviators

Posted by on in Documentary Short


Father and son Helmut and Henrik have an ambition to fly their tiny single-engine Cessna to the North Pole – and land there. But there is no land to ‘land’ on: just ice that floats on the sea and constantly drifts with the wind and sea currents. Their engine has already failed – twice – in the first part of the trip, fortunately in both cases while still on the ground.

They will attempt the trip, to a destination that has certainly moved but that they absolutely must find – while using dubious navigation systems – with an unreliable engine, not knowing if the weather is bad, and going to one of the coldest and harshest places on earth.
