Era Aviation was a small regional airline founded in 1984 by Jim Tweto. Operating out of Unalakeet Era served small communities in western Alaska with scheduled and charter flights. Era was made famous by the 2011 to 2012 Discovery Channel series Flying Wild Alaska, which chronicled the day to day operation of the family run business. Mergers and acquisitions over the years have resulted in Era now flying under the banner of Ravn Alaska, the largest regional carrier in the state. For the complete story Google Era Aviation.
