Who is Ariel Tweto?

Ariel is a popular television personality – and a private pilot – who rose to stardom after making an appearance in “Flying Wild Alaska”, a very popular reality TV show, which depicted her family’s way of living in Alaska. She has also played a part in the game show “Wipeout”.

Early Life, Family, and Education

Ariel Tweto was born in Unalakleet, Alaska USA, of Native American ethnicity to Jim and Freno Tweto, on 14 December 1987, under the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius – her sign accurately describes her as a fearless adventurer who is not afraid of taking risks. At birth, she was given the name Ariel Eva Tuadraq-Atauchaq Tweto. She has a sister, Alya Tweto. Her parents met when her dad was in Alaska as a professional hockey player, trying to create interest in the game. He met and fell in love with her mother, and they later went into the aviation business, Era Alaska. Ariel and Alya grew up in Nome Census, Alaska, where she attended Emerson College, and then graduated in communications from Chapman University in Southern California.


Ariel’s career as an actress began at a young age when she appeared in the TV show “Wipeout”. She became famous in an incident in which she asks about a pole she cannot see yet it is right in front of her. The interest shown by audiences in the young girl leads the directors to approach the Tweto family to do a reality show about their lives, deep in the Alaskan wilderness. Her father, Jim, is skeptical but gives the OK for the cameras to roll at his workplace. As a bush pilot, he still runs his aviation company known as Era Alaska.

The reality show “Flying Wild Alaska” by Discovery Channel was an instant hit, as it brought into sharp focus the challenges the Tweto family face as they run their aviation business. To many Americans, the challenge of living in an environment that reminds one of the early days Wild West is riveting. The human battle against sometimes cruel nature makes fans celebrate with the Twetos’ in their triumphs, and sympathize with them in their losses. With Jim in the bush pilot’s seat and his wife Ferno managing things on the ground, the family is never short of action. In the midst of this is Ariel’s upbeat character.

Ariel hosted the TV series” Native Shorts” for the Sundance Institute in 2013, as well as the2013/ 2014 Miss USA, Alaska chapter, pageant. She has also been a guest on ”The Late Show” with Craig Ferguson. Ariel has also produced a number of shows such as the short film, “Francis” (2010),” Flying Again” – her big screen debut in 2016, and “The Pipeline” (2018).

With Ariel’s parents, Jim and Ferno both being pilots, it was only natural that Ariel took an interest in flying from an early age. The 2011 to 2012 season of “Flying Alaska” follows Ariel’s training as a pilot, ultimately earning her pilot’s license in April 2012. She later takes over the running of the family’s flying business on the retirement of her father.

In 2016, Ariel starred in the documentary dubbed “Flying Again” created by J. Edward Ellis, which follows eight pilots who have gone out of shape, and who are on their way to sharpening their skills and becoming pilots once again. She was among the pilots featured in the show. Most recently a series called “True Alaska” has debuted – let’s see if it lives up to its title.

Ariel and Charity Work

One of the major concerns of many Alaskans is the high suicide rate among teens, which is as high as seven times the national average. Ariel’s response to this was co-founding a charity known as “Popping Bubbles”, in which she goes around schools and other youth forums talking to youngsters about why they should have a reason to live, and pursue their dreams rather than giving in to depression.

Personal Life, Married, Boyfriend, and Marriage

When it comes to her personal life and especially her love life, Ariel has been very private and media shy. Interest in her love life peaked in one of her interviews when she revealed that she had never been kissed, which earned her the nickname Kissaholic. This episode that charmed the audience, and later came to be known as “The Kissing Episode”. At one point, there was speculation that she and her flying instructor were dating, however, she cleared the air saying that she regarded him as a brother and nothing more. So at present, Ariel is still single, but is very active on Instagram, having over 30,000 followers, on which she regularly posts pictures of her adventures and holidays for her fans to enjoy. She also loves animals, and owns two puppies. This adventurous lady plans on coming up with an animated series, giving it the title “Ariel’s View”, and in which she will befriend animals and go on many adventures.

  1. “Ariel makes in excess of $104,000 per annum as a pilot.”
    She can’t. She’s not a commercial pilot. She was issued a private pilot certificate in 2017, single engine rated. She’s not in the aviation industry, the reality TV show was a family business that she starred in. She’s an actress. The show came to an end.

    “She later takes over the running of the family’s flying business on the retirement of her father.”
    Very much not. She does not run a “family flying business.” She barely flies. Era Aviation filed for bankruptcy in 2005. Purchased in 2009 by Frontier Flying Group.

    She doesn’t have a charity. She incorporated “Popping Bubbles” in 2015: “The specific purpose of this corporation is to to create audio visual content and an online platform focusing on self-betterment with a focus of education, travel, self-sustenance, preserving culture, which we will use to support our tours and motivational talks. With the hopes broadening peoples horizons either emotional or financial.” IRS revoked non-profit status in 2018.
    She does paid motivational speaking gigs.

    Her current project is “Into America’s Wild”, a travel industry film on national parks. She spends most of her time in California or family home in Anchorage.

  5. Ariel is the most delightful person I have ever seen. She seems to have no restraints and speaks openly and innocently on topics and interviews. I sincerely wish her well.

  6. There may be “distortions” in the story of Ariel’s life but that’s just how she is. Dr Phil might add “perception is reality” so what’s the harm in a little story telling? Clearly she is flamboyant and mostly care-free and who wouldn’t want such a life? I tell you: I FEEL BETTER WHEN I WATCH HER! She wants desperately to impart these same feelings into those who have lost life”s drive. And who are you to burst this?

  7. Cmon guys don’t believe the accuracy of these internet spam mails. Somebody just made up a narrative so they can get hits on ads. Ariel never claimed to be a commercial pilot or be running her dad’s business. To the contrary, she clearly stated she was getting put up for her private check ride. Good for her! No small task.

    1. Good on you! Unfortunately, reality shows in Alaska are largely spoofs (as are much of these blogs, as you astutely pointed out) and so incredibly ridiculous to someone who resides in the state, as I have for 40 years. The show about the Tweto family, although probably embellished by the producers, at least had the appearance of being genuine, and Ariel seems to be a very lovely and genuine person, even to the point of some self-abasement.

  8. Why don’t we hear anything about the other pilot who died in the plane crash? I would like to see a picture of him.
