Air Dogs appeals to aviation nuts

Discovery Civilization Channel is taking viewers into some pretty rare cockpits for some high flying at the end of January.

Discovery Civilization is putting all kinds of wings on a seasoned Snowbird pilot and a weekend Cessna flier in Air Dogs, an appeal to aviation nuts in the 8 pm ET/9 pm PT time slot, starting Jan. 29.

The six half-hour episodes show the test pilot and the filmmaker sweet-talking their way into the cockpits of aircraft ranging from a vintage World War II bomber to a CF-18. They fly loops and perform other air-show-worthy stunts, and the two hosts – Mark Miller and Captain Robert J. Reichert, a.k.a. ‘Rooster’ – will likely appeal to both aviation experts and amateurs.

Air Dogs is an original Canadian production commissioned by Discovery Civilization Channel and Discovery HD.
