The Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation, universally known as Convair, was the result of a 1943 merger between Consolidated Aircraft and Vultee Aircraft, resulting in a leading aircraft manufacturer of the United States. In 1954, Convair merged with Electric Boat to form General Dynamics, and the aircraft operation became the Convair Division of the merged company. It produced aircraft until 1965, then shifted to space and airframe projects, continuing until 1996, when the division was entirely shut down.
