The national spotlight will shine on Western North Carolina beginning March 21 when Mountain Air, an award-winning, private residential community located just north of Asheville, will be featured on a national airing of The Travel Channel's Million Dollar Planes television show.


The segment on Mountain Air will be one of four featured during the hour-long show dedicated to luxury air travel. The segment will center on the lives of Tom and Toni Oreck, Mountain Air property owners who access the community via a sleek and speedy, single-engine turboprop Pilatus aircraft. 


In fact, the original focus of the show was to be on the Pilatus, but when the production company arrived at Mountain Air they shifted the focus over to the lifestyle amenities at the community, and how the airplane becomes the facilitator for the Oreck family's retreat to the magic of the mountaintop.


Another focus of the segment will be Mountain Air's uncommon and dramatic private runway. Perched nearly a mile in the sky at an elevation of 4,500 feet above sea level, the runway is the highest in the country east of Denver Stapleton Airport. 


The Million Dollar Planes show is scheduled to air on Monday, March 21 at 8pm and 11pm EST. Additional airings are scheduled for Sunday, March 27 at 5pm; Monday, May 23 at 8 and 11pm; and Sunday, May 29 at 5pm.


"We are deeply indebted to the Oreck family for taking a full day out their busy schedule to spend time with the Travel Channel film crew, says Randy Banks", President of Mountain Air. "They are consummate ambassadors for the community and we're grateful for the goodwill they continually spread around the country." For more information click on
