Robert Forman Six was born June 25, 1907, in Stockton, California. He was the CEO of Continental Airlines from 1936 to 1981. He died October 6, 1986, in his Los Angeles International Airport office. Six's career began in the earliest days of U.S. commercial aviation. His determined, scrappy, risk-taking nature paid off for Continental Airlines, the company that would for fifty years be forged in his image. Owing in large part to the foundation laid by Six, Continental is today one of the largest and most profitable legacy airlines in the world.
In 1971, Robert Six was nominated and inducted into the Colorado Aviation Hall of Fame.
