I wonder if it was Kevin or Mike who swiped this one.... Would be great to see this one on Airplane Repo.... I think it is Kevin that lives or Grew up in Canada:)

It is a very entertaining show, BUT that is NOT realistic. Aircraft repo's are actually a long, drawn-out, boring process that can tske days, sometimes weeks to complete.

Hard to show everything in a half hour show. The travel times alone could, and probably do, take days. I, for one, don't particularly like having firearms pointed at me and I wouldn't want to be a repo man of any kind. My 2nd grade teacher's husband, a retired California Highway Patrolman, took to repos after his retirement and was killed on the job.

Yeah, auto repo's are a different story, but aircraft repo's aren't any where near as "dramatic" as that show makes it out to be.

You have to make it entertaining.... Otherwise who would watch it.

I absolutely agree, but then why call it "reality" TV? Just gets on my nerves and this isn't the only show that does it, of course.

"Reality" in someone's mind... Just like Survivor is Reality.... NOT!!!

"airplane repo"

I didn't know that was a thing. I mean as a TV show. I don't search out these "real" entertainment opportunities.

But as far as airplane repo, you don't want to be jumping into random planes, of owners who can't afford the note and fly off. If the can't pay their note, they probably don't have money for necessary maintenance.

Any such flight can be the repo man's last flight.

Or worse yet they may be doing their own maintenance.

sparkie624 - 'loose' should be 'lose'

I want to see that girl from Flying Wild Alaska, Aerial Tweto, become a repo agent. That would be entertainment.

She would do well.

Nice idea... Would like to see them bring that program back, but I doubt it will ever happen because they were bought out and the Tweto's took retirement. If you will note their last episode was a Good Bye Episode to say goodbye to all of their fans.

seems to me, These repo people are breaking more laws than would ever be allowed.... TO me if you hop a fence at any airport , you should spend the next 30 days in a cell if the bank and the tower cant stop a deadbeat..then a paid police detail should be a must .....THEN again this is drama !!

Sometimes dead beats play hard to get.... I am not saying that they aren't sensationalizing all of this, but I am sure they are bending a rule or two.
