It employs hundreds of people in the Coast City area. Ferris Air was founded by Carl Ferris and is currently run by his daughter Carol Ferris. Ferris Air was a long time employer of the Green Lantern Hal Jordan. It was a Ferris plane that exploded taking the life of Hal's father, the test pilot Martin Jordan. Hal Jordan was in the middle of a flight simulation when he is whisked away by a dying Abin Sur and given his ring for the first time.
Following Hal Jordan's death, Ferris Air becomes rundown and the planes are no longer flown. After he returns from the dead Carol reinvests her time in the company to make name Ferris mean something again. Following his being fired from Edwards Air Force base, Carol allows Hal to come back to work for Ferris.
