More layoffs in plane business

Posted By on Fri, Dec 4, 2009 at 12:01 PM

This was strongly rumored during the last round of job cuts at the Hawker Beechcraft aircraft completion facility at Little Rock National Airport.

Roby Brock at Talk Business says a statement is coming this evening from Dassault Falcon, another major aircraft facility at the airport, and he expects it to be further layoffs.

Gov. Beebe met with Dassault officials on his recent trade visit to Europe. But no amount of gubernatorial globetrotting is a guarantee against business fundamentals. This is not a good time to sell expensive private jets.

UPDATE: Fox 16 says 200 jobs.
