The Worst Place To Be A Pilot: Channel 4, 9:00pm

Channel 4 are starting a series tonight about Susi Air a rapidly expanding Indonesian air charter business which uses single engine aircraft to access remote settlements many of whose airstrips are less than 500 meters in length.
Join me at nine as we secure 'hatches and harnesses' and fire up the Pilatus Turbo Porter for what promises to be the whitest of white knuckle rides!

I will be watching. Definitely more entertaining than watching Arsenal play on ITV.

Saw a trailer for it on Sunday. Looks entertaining!

All looks very hairy to me, vicious down-draughts, 450 m strips, mountainous terrain, uncertain weather, rumours of head hunters and cannibals in remote areas, erratic pax, pax carrying shotguns and axe's on board, the remains of crashed aircraft on the approach - Susi Air is not for me but I will enjoy watching the remainder of the series. I did notice their sole Piaggio Avanti however, now that's more my style!
