Coulson Aviation buys 5 Norwegian Hercules aircraft

November 26, 2019 / Skies Mag

Coulson Aviation (USA) Inc. has bought five C-130H transport planes from the Norwegian Defense Materiel Agency (NDMA), which will be modified into firefighting aircraft. The formal takeover is planned for the end of this year/early 2020. In March 2018, the NDMA sales process was initiated through a Request for Proposal (RFP). Six companies responded to the RFP; however, only Coulson Aviation was able to provide the required documentation, including the current government contracts, which was part of the sales regulations. The sale to Coulson Aviation has been approved by U.S. Authorities, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Norwegian Ministry of Defense.
