DynCorp International traces its roots to two companies formed in 1946: Land-Air Inc., an aircraft maintenance company, and California Eastern Airways, an air-freight company.
In 1951 California Eastern Airways bought Land-Air Inc. to form California Eastern Aviation, Inc.
By 1961 the company had diversified and needed a new name to reflect the growing and changing company; Dynalectron Corporation was chosen as the new name.
Today DynCorp is a United States national security contractor and supports the Department of Defense with international police force training and linguist services. The company also provides solutions for post-conflict countries to rebuild infrastructure, remove weapons, install utilities, and provide security.
DynCorp is privately held and is #684 in the Fortune 1000.
