Welcome to RPMP Media,
My name is Rex Pemberton, the founder of RPMP Media. I hope to update you on our crazy adventures, every once in a while on this blog page.
While I write, I am sitting at 30,00ft traveling above some of the most beautiful snow capped mountains I have seen, on my way to the Denali range Alaska.
My wife is sitting next to me. Her name is Melissa Pemberton and together we travel the world producing very cool media, performing in Air Shows and adventuring in the world’s most remote environments.
Our next adventure is upon us. It is super exciting to get a break from the busy Air Show schedule and be on our way up to the frontier, the bush flying holly grail. We are heading to Don Lee’s float and ski flying school in Talketena.
Two years ago Melissa and I booked in with Don to complete a floatplane course. It was so much fun we promised ourselves we would come back and try ski flying. This means landing light aircraft on glaciers in and around Mt McKinley.
To fly around Alaska is truly special. It is some of the most exciting and rewarding flying you can do as a pilot.
As a mountaineer and avid backcountry skier I am also hoping I can get some nice power turns while we enjoy the beautiful landscapes this state as to offer.
Are we filming? I think, you know that answer to that :-) Yes, we are always filming. I hope to build on the stockpile of footage I shot from the last trip and put together a short film of float and ski flying.
The next blog update hopefully will come soon. That is if we are not having to much fun flying!
