Dassault expansion

Posted By on Tue, Jun 12, 2007 at 10:00 AM

Gov. Mike Beebe and Dassault Falcon have had the announcement mentioned here yesterday. The aircraft modification facility will add 116,000 square feet, which will mean abut 200 new jobs by the end of 2007, paying about $20 an hour. The plant will now cover 820,00 square feet at Little Rock National Airport. News release says the $20-million expansion will include a new paint facility, warehouse expansion, new engineering facilities and additions to Dassault’s flight-test line.

Government contribution? Modest -- $62,500 from AED, $62,500 from the Department of Aerospace, and $50,000 from the city of Little Rock for infrastructure.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
