Dassault Falcon Jet Cuts Work Force Again

We heard that Dassault Falcon Jet in Little Rock had to make more staff reductions a few days ago.

That's not surprising given the soft market for private aircraft, but still lousy news for anyone who had a job, liked it, did it well and now doesn't have that job.

How many people were let walk? The company hasn't replied to our requests for details.

We're told that about 40 people were cut loose, and a good portion of them were early retirements.

If that's accurate, the company would still have some 1,760 workers in Little Rock, down from a high above 2,000 in late 2007.
