Consolidated

The Consolidated Aircraft Corporation was founded in 1923 by Major Reuben H. Fleet, who had been the manager of the Gallaudet Aircraft Company, upon its liquidation, and his purchase of designs from the Dayton-Wright Company, a division of General Motors. Producing flying boats in the 1920s and 1930s, at Buffalo, the most famous was the PBY Catalina. In 1929 the company had bought the Thomas-Morse company. In 1935 Consolidated moved from Buffalo to San Diego. The Liberator bomber was also produced by Consolidated, beginning in 1939, and a giant plant was opened in Fort Worth, Texas during WW2. The company merged with Vultee in 1943 to form Convair (Consolidated-Vultee Aircraft), which continued to be based in San Diego.
