Episodes will accompany Neil and his bombshell entrepreneur girlfriend, his semi-famous rocker manager, and his soft-spoken female mentor and flight instructor, as they embark on various whirlwind flights across North America and the Caribbean, enjoying rock-star level treatment along the way.

“We get to see a developing side of Vince that lifts the series above the typical celebrity reality fare,” said Anthony Nalli, producer and creator of Vince Neil Escapes as well as a long-time pilot and host of The Aviators. “He’s faced with some choices that could have life-and-death consequences, and is called upon to summon a serious side that many ‘Vince-haters’

It’s taken time for it to sink in, but I’ve definitely gone through some unexpected changes.”
Viewers can observe Vince’s push-pull relationship with his unlikely new confidant and flight instructor (the only non-celebrity in the group, suddenly immersed in a VIP party scene), and how Vince’s existing relationships with his put-upon manager and ambitious girlfriend are each influenced by his latest adventures in aviation.
