Employment at Hawker Beechcraft has fallen below an agreement with Wichita and Kansas leaders, according to an annual report.
Hawker said 3,372 employees work at the Wichita facility. The aviation company agreed to employ 3,600 employees as part of a $45 million tax incentive plan to remain in Wichita.
Bill Boisture, Hawker chairman, said the economic recession continues to hit the company's finances. Hawker filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year. Financial restructuring plans are expected to be complete in February.
“We have stabilized the company and believe we are well positioned for growth in the future," Boisture said.
In a press release, Boisture thanked local and state leaders for their support, and said the company remains committed to Wichita.
The company is looking to fill about 65 open positions.
