Profile of Max Folsom, a bush pilot who missed only three days of flying in northern Maine last year due to poor conditions. His Greenville-based Folsom's Flying Service is the best-known floatplane outfit in the North Woods. This month, the family-owned enterprise, which Folsom bought from his father, Dick Folsom, will be 50 years old. Because he flies business people, he says he doesn't have the option of canceling flights. In an average year, the company does about seven rescues. Max Folsom came of age flying behind legendary floatplane pilot Charlie Coe, who flew for Folsom's for decades. He has as many as five pilots working for him in peak season.
