Alaska Long Hunters - now in post production! - Alaska Long Hunters
This story records the life of a young pilot flying in Alaska’s Frontier Arctic. You’ll experience the front seat thrills of bush planes and helicopters operating in the most dangerous conditions on Earth. Flying in minus 60 temperatures and horrific storms, airborne among the magnificent mountains, glaciers and rivers that only Alaska has to offer. Once you've read this volume you’ll not be satisfied until you visit Alaska yourself! Includes true-life experiences of accidents, comradeship, humor, heartbreaks and life in Frontier Alaska, gone forever when dismantled into parks and native lands in the 1970’s. Filming on location commences October 1, 2018.
Long Hunters opens with an interesting and well researched early history of the 49th State, leading to the eventual use and development of a new tool of transport – the single engine airplane, but not without extracting a terrible price. Experience what it was like to growing up among the dangerous game, hunting the massive caribou herds and absorbing the greatness of the county in the 60's. Pilots will gain from the flying experiences related, includes a new appendix with life saving operational notes on pass and mountain weather flying found nowhere else plus many important links for Alaska flying. Every boy, man and aviator won't be able to put this one down, and more importantly, be compelled to grapple with its final truth, concluding with a crisis encounter that forever changed the pilot's life.

Film Documentary announcement as of 9/24/2018:
Director/Filmmaker Miles Hannon sign on to Long Hunters production.
Director Miles Hannon and Executive Producer Tim Mahoney of Patterns of Evidence are teamed on this great project, sure to thrill millions and challenge all to consider the realities & experiences related in the title.. Updates weekly!
We pitched Long Hunters to a number of interested Hollywood filmmakers the week of Oct 15th.
We expect to hear back from any of those folks that are interested in taking the next step towards making a feature film this year. In the mean time, we are progressing on schedule with our Long Hunters single or multi part documentary coming out June of 2109. We are grateful for all you that are praying for us an supporting this project by purchasing Last of the Long Hunters book. We are setting up our Lama helicopter (period a/c we used) and a Maule for winter film sequences in Alaska and the West. Bob Wigen, Alaska's highest time bush helicopter pilot just visited here at my home. We discussed the safety aspects he brings to the table. We interviewed Bob in Alaska the last trip and are planning to integrate his part in making this film. Thank you! - Mark
We've been collaborating with a number of great folks on the book-to-movie project, likely going to be called Alaska Long Hunters. This exciting project is moving forward and we need your prayer support. We are preparing a Maule aircraft as I write this (we have a Lama helicopter) that's the same model type fixed wing I used throughout the period. Lots of fun as we await the weather to break to resume filming on site in Alaska!
Great connections made in March:
Attended Proclaim 19 NRB last week and made some amazing connections with the film media. So encouraging! Maybe also a few breakthroughs relating to collaborations and partnerships!
We're heading to back to Alaska for more filming! We have rebuilt our star aircraft, actors and film crews are ready and so are we! Sign up for our newsletter for more exciting back scene footage and details.. More to come from the Great Land soon! - Mark
Returned from another film excursion 4-10-2019 with our staff and film crew. Interviewed Dr. Theresa John about her life living in the villages and growing up. She testified about the hardships of winter in the Tooksik area and challenges of late with warming trends along the mid-Alaska coast, where the men of that zone have perished seal hunting in the lack of defined coastline and dangerous sea-ice. Also her close brushes with death in her 25 year commercial fishing career. Great job Theresa! We also interviewed Gayle Ranney, Smithsonian Air Museum inductee, about her 28,000 hour Alaska bush pilot career and my first flight instructor! What an honor. Gayle shared about her Alaska flying life and near death experience after an unfortunate accident (no passengers) as the weather trapped her, forced her down and the attempted rescue efforts that failed to timely extract her. Another great interview, one of several great ones that will appear in the upcoming film. Don't miss it in March of 2020!

The film team returned to Alaska the first week of August to begin air to air filming on-site, plus test new camera equipment and mounting techniques. Our new film pilot Chris B. and Mark worked through formation flight techniques and safety protocols, all the while coordinating with the film crew to get things right. We were blessed with great weather in the Alaska Range and around Mt McKinley in particular. Sad note: on one of the filming days, our director came back to the hotel to learn that a close friend had perished in a small aircraft accident in Canada. Brought home the reality of the safety component of this film and the importance of what we are doing to share our safe flying experiences to the future viewer/pilots, plus the need to keep on our toes ourselves! We hired a third pilot and aircraft to monitor our maneuver's while formation flying. All agreed it was a good idea as sometimes we are blind to one another, the third aircraft able to stay back and make sure we are lined out and maintaining safety margins. We will return in the September fall season with the actors to shoot phase 3, phase 4 being winter ski-plane scenes. All our work in being done on-site in Alaska, the only way to get it right. Watch for updates and clips in he September newsletter - Mark
We are done! 99% of all filming is a rap according to our Director Miles Hannon. What a cram packed schedule September turned out to be! Actors got to witness a pair of Bull Moose sparing outside their cabin. Hours of flying in various light aircraft (one of the cinematographers rode in three different types in one day) and all did a splendid job! So many miracles, divine appointments and connections made. Thank You for praying, most important, all were safe, with yours truly flying approx.100 hours, sometimes in challenging remote conditions. Weather cooperated, on one air to air take we all flew through a rainbow as fall was chasing us down! New trailers and more to come.. Its now in the hands of the editors, but we gave them much more footage than they bargained for!
Completed winter ski flying scenes in the Alaska Range 10-15. Had amazingly good weather as anything can happen this time of year. Instead, we were met with clear sky's, little wind and mild temperatures all around. Day after we finished, a strong storm front hit and winter was here! Had the most difficulty hopping over to the strip where we had our hanger, this due to gusty wind conditions and tall trees! Ha! Thank God we had no mishaps out in the bush!
Thank God we had no serious mishaps crew or otherwise as we traveled home and are now in post production. Miraculously, we also found a great hanger near our desired location in Alaska at a reasonable price, another answered prayer and nothing short of a miracle, as such space is so, so rare. I've kept very busy leading the film marketing team, lately opening a YouTube channel "Alaska Long Hunters" as a repository to release short films promoting the overall documentary. Over all, this means great progress culminating with our first film debut last week of February at NRB in Nashville. Amen!
"From the beginning, this book draws you into a great adventure. You easily and vividly imagine you are a part of it, and it’s hard to put it down until you have completed the journey. Part history book, adventure story, and survival manual, Last of the Long Hunters combines real-life experiences whose contents, if gleaned well, could save your life in more ways than one. This is one to read over and over again."
—Brent Maule, pilot and president of Maule Air, Inc.
"Last of the Long Hunters is an excellent read for a short history of Alaska flying and what we often experienced. Mark and I worked together for years on the North Slope and elsewhere in the state. He has covered the adventure of flying and documented the many mistakes that were made and the lessons that were learned. Since aviation was a new industry there, our forerunners had to learn the limits of their machines and the human limits. We learned how to listen to our machines, watch the weather, and respect the inner voice that questions what we do. Further, planning ahead for any unforeseen changes was a must. Staying informed and using the FAA rules also helped us stay safe. My military experience and training before I came to Alaska paved the way for a successful career. I am looking forward to his next book, which focuses on helicopters in Alaska."
—Bob Wigen, Anchorage, Alaska, Retired Era helicopter chief pilot 4-2017
Editor’s note: Mr. Wigen has thirty-seven years of Alaska flying experience and has logged more than 26,000 flying hours.
"Thank you for such an interesting read. I find this book so fascinating. This book makes me regret not having visited Alaska when it would have been easier to do so.
There is so much about your book that I like, and it seems to me that you have effectively pulled together the history of Alaskan aviation with your own story that it makes compelling reading. I kept thinking that this book must be a special blessing to your kids, not just because Dad has written a fascinating book, but because through this book they can know a side of you that they might not get to know any other way. I was fascinated to work my way through this information. Everything from the “rules of” to the check list to how certain equipment actually saved lives in a crash situation, this section was like a compelling exercise for my brain."
- Dr. Mark Barclift 1-2017
"I highly recommend this book! This is a fantastic read with a big payoff. This is a great read for anyone who loves history, aviation, hunting and true life stories. We've all enjoyed hearing those unbelievable stories growing up, around a campfire or the dinner table. Those stories that have you on the edge of your seat and the ones that create heroes. This book is an incredible story and a true story the author lived through and changed his life forever. In addition I enjoyed the setup with the history of Alaska, his growing up in Alaska, the visual journey the author takes you through heading into the vast unknown of the Alaska territory. I'm not a pilot but I found myself following the author's routine and there are a lot of tips in the appendix of the book that are his notes to other pilots where he is wanting to pass his wisdom along. Looking forward to reading more from the author! Would make a great movie!"
-Rodney Hatfield on December 5, 2016
"I absolutely loved this book and recommend it to anyone who wants a front seat to the real adventures of the Alaskan pilots! It's very well written and a GREAT read!"

NEW to Revision III
Trinity Broadcasting Network interviewed author Mark Rose!
"I felt compelled to let you know how much I am enjoying reading the book, “The Noah Code” by Mark D. Rose….It is one of the best books I have ever read, so well written, so full of amazing history, facts and information. The description of the animals arriving to enter the Ark filled me with tears at the sheer magnificence of the Lord. It has helped to bolster my faith with the undeniable evidence that has been before our eyes all along. THANK YOU for such a wonderful book. I want to share it with family and friends. Please convey my appreciation to the author. "Blessings"
,- L. Rees, Trinity Broadcasting
