Stanley Aviation

The crew at Stanley Aviation. Robert Stanley invented and perfected the ejection seat not too far from East Colfax!

  1. Nice photo! Just to clarify, Stanley and his team didn't invent the ejection seat but 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.
