One of the United States of America's foremost defense contractors, Ferris Aircraft has a long history beginning in Coast City, California.


The Coast City-based Ferris Aircraft has been at the forefront of aviation technology for decades. It's also had its share of legal problems. Faced with the alcoholism and irresponsibility of his partner Conrad Bloch, co-founder Carl Ferris was forced to remove his friend from the company in its early days. Years later, after Ferris had left most of the day-to-day maintenance of the company to his daughter Carol, the company skirted dangerously close to bankruptcy. In years to come, Ferris would be plagued by saboteurs and the cancellation of its government contracts, a devastating attack by the Demolition Team and a hostile take-over, among many other setbacks. It was also one of the funding powers behind the Conglomerate. In recent times, Carol Ferris has regained control of the company and Ferris Aircraft's recent achievements include their contribution to the new Blackhawk squadron and the launch of FerrisAir, a commercial airline service.
