The company was founded by Carl Ferris and Conrad Bloch. Carl and Conrad were friends since childhood, he shared the dream of creating a business together, Ferris-Bloch Air-Cargo, Ltd. Ferris was a business man, Bloch a pilot. Together they became profitable against the odds. However, as time went on, Ferris was constantly working, building up the business while Bloch played around, seeing many women and drinking.
The company was at the forefront of aviation technology for decades, but it also had legal problems. This was due to Conrad Bloch, the co-founder, who had a drinking problem. Carl Ferris was forced to remove his friend, ending their close partnership.
The company prospered, and, years later, Ferris passed its management on to his daughter, Carol Ferris. One of the company's pilots was Hal Jordan, who later became the Green Lantern for Sector 2814 and constantly flirted with his boss Carol. Hal joined the company and took a position of test pilot like his father Martin Jordan, who was killed in an accident many years before.
In years to come, the company was plagued by saboteurs of different kinds, from the cancellation of government contracts, to a hostile take over at the hands of Mr. Smith -who was secretly a Manhunter- as well as numerous devastating attacks, first by the Demolition Team, then by Eclipso, and finally being completely obliterated with the destruction of Coast City.
In recent years Carol has regained control of the company and Ferris Aircraft, Inc. Recent achievements include their contribution to the new Blackhawk Squadron and the launch of FerrisAir, a commercial airline service.
