Stanley Aviation

Robert Stanley and his crew at Stanley Aviation, not too far from East Colfax!

Robert Stanley and his team developed an encapsulated seat ejection system suitable for the B-58 Hustler which flew at high speed (Mach 2) and altitude (70,000 ft). An interesting side note is that Stanley borrowed bears from the Denver Zoo for testing the ejection capsules.

  1. Stanley Aviation in Aurora was founded in 1954, the year Elvis released his first record. Bob Stanley, the company's founder, died July 16, 1977, exactly one month to the day before Elvis died.
