Coulson offers a chance to fly Martian Mars

Coulson Aviation has introduced a chance to fly the Martin Mars, WW2 aircraft, the company said.

Martin Mars aircraft is the largest aircraft ever built and a part of aviation history. Before the fleet is retired, Coulson Aviation has offered aviation enthusiasts a chance to fly the aircraft.

Coulson purchased the Martin Mars water bombers in 2007 with the notion to modernize these aircraft and continue to use them for aerial fire suppression throughout North America. They were the anchor of the BC Government Firefighting program until released from service in 2015.

Coulson Flying Tankers is a subsidiary of the Coulson Group of Companies, which was founded in 1960. Through more than 50 years of innovation and diversification, the company has expanded into many global markets, including aviation, timber harvesting, environmental cleaning technologies and gaming.
