Our last featured historic landmark for Historic Preservation Month is Stanley Aviation. This week’s Throwback Thursday photo is a c. 1990s photo of Stanley Aviation recently shared by a former employee, Richard Cook. Mr. Cook managed much of the plant’s facilities from 1989 until around 2007.
Stanley Aviation developed and manufactured ejection seats as well as flexible fueling solutions and other air and aerospace technologies. The plant operated at 2501 Dallas Street from 1954-2007. This past year, the Stanley Aviation building re-opened as Stanley Marketplace, a community-focused marketplace with over 50 independently owned Colorado businesses collectively offering a place to eat, drink, shop, exercise, play, work and more.
