Melissa Burns has chosen the great hostile and untamed spaces of Alaska to indulge her passions for extremes.

This young mother of two is an aerobatic champion and dances in the air like no other between the mountains.
She amazes everyone who crosses her path and has made it her goal to inspire other young women to follow her example.
Spring is the start of climbing season in Denali National Park. Frozen rivers are freed, activities are resuming.
Melissa, who lives at 100 miles an hour, begins her second job as an aerial taxi pilot for the most famous taxi company in Alaska.
To transport climbers or carry out scientific missions, to supply refuges and base camps, pilots must master the art of mountain aviation and glacier drop-off.
Before joining this group of elite pilots, Melissa will have to pass a series of high-flying tests.
