The Ultimate Flying Experience - A Chance to Fly the Martin Mars

VANCOUVER, June 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Coulson Flying Tankers – Owners of the Largest Flying Water Bombers in the world, the mighty Martin Mars, announced today the launch of the Ultimate Aviation Experience: A chance to fly the Martin Mars aircraft.  


"The Martin Mars aircraft, holders of numerous world records, are truly amazing pieces of WW2 history, as they are the largest aircraft ever built.  Before the fleet is retired, Coulson Aviation is offering Aviation enthusiasts a chance to fly one of these incredible pieces of aviation history." says Wayne Coulson, CEO and President of Coulson Flying Tankers.

Coulson purchased the mighty Martin Mars water bombers in 2007 with the notion to modernize these aircraft and continue to use them for aerial fire suppression through-out North America. "There will never be an aircraft built that will have flown and dropped more water on wildfires over their five decade history.  They were the anchor of the BC Government Firefighting program until released from service in 2015. We have been honored to be part of their wonderful history and are excited to be bringing one of the Martin Mars to the Oshkosh airshow this year." Wayne Coulson explained.

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