Sky High Club | Preview (BBC Three)
It’s take-off for a 10-part series that tells the stories of the young crew members of the UK’s largest regional airline.
This opening episode introduces the Loganair team including pilots and cabin crew, who are buckling their belts for journeys across Scotland and beyond in their busiest summer yet.
Robbie is the youngest pilot to become a captain in the UK. Now 25, he has the dream job, and Kirsten, his dream girl - but there’s one small problem: he lives in Edinburgh and she lives on the remote island of Shetland as part of the customer service team.
Luckily for him, crew members and good pals Shannon and Karolina are on hand to organise a team day out, and offer some solid advice on long-distance relationships.
Moroccan-born Omar has moved from the Canary Islands to start a new life in Scotland.
He’s training to become a member of the cabin crew, and having made the big move to Aberdeen for a career with the airline, the pressure’s on to pass gruelling exams or risk having to take off again to another location.
Sky High Club is produced by Mentorn Scotland. The commission came from a creative partnership of BBC Three, BBC Scotland and Screen Scotland. Begins Thursday 18th August at 8pm on BBC Three.
