We believe in fair dealings and  what matters most to us is that at the end of the day you're happy, so we'll do whatever it takes to make that happen. That's our satisfaction guarantee.

In 2011 Eric partnered with Curtiss Aero as the NY and New England dealer for CubCrafters Aircraft, acting as Director of Sales and Marketing. The natural Evolution of this business was helping others to buy and sell their aircraft to accomplish their personal and professional goals, be it backcountry flying, aerobatics, "going places" with the family or for business, or just the pure personal satisfaction of breaking free of our bonds to this earth; the real reason we are all here in aviation and why Evolution continues on to help people achieve their goals.

Evolution Aircraft Sales is owned and operated by Eric Standley based in Danbury, CT (KDXR).

A native to Sedona, AZ, Eric's first airplane ride was at the age of 5 with his grandfather in a Piper Cherokee 180. From that moment on, he knew someday he would become a commercial pilot and fly for a living. In 2002 he enrolled at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott, AZ campus, where just 2.5 years later in 2005 he would graduate top-of-his-class with a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Science degree; his first of three degrees including a second Science degree in Technical Management, and third degree in Business.


We share your passion for flight and are committed to providing you with the highest level of service possible to help you achieve your goals with your aircraft for sale.


Your money is important to you, and helping you save your money is important to us. We ask the important questions to ensure your sale is managed in the most effective and efficient manner possible.

Eric then taught Flight Academics at ERAU as a Flight Instructor for 5 years, including everything from private, instrument, commercial, CFI, CFII, MEI, and upset recovery training (aerobatics), as well as conducting check-rides for those certificates as a part 141 Check Airman. 


​​Now a Captain for White Cloud Charter based at the Westchester County Airport (KHPN), Eric continues to follow his passion for flight traveling the globe in a variety of Gulfstream aircraft including the G-150, G-IV, G-450, and G-550.

Evolution Aircraft Sales 

Specializes in buying and selling high-performance business and recreational aircraft, to make sales and acquisitions as simple and effortless for you as possible.

​We are part of a nationwide network of dealers actively engaged with qualified buyers, resulting in many aircraft selling before they are brought to public market. We manage all aspects of the sale process including advertising, buyer vetting, and coordination of the pre-buy inspection. We’ll keep the transaction moving in a timely and organized fashion, and protect your interests with a detailed sales agreement and use of title agency for escrow.
