Global investment creates local aviation jobs

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- A French aviation company, Beaudet Aviation, a subsidiary of JCB Aero, is investing $2.5 million in a new facility to help to supply jet parts for Dassault Falcon.

This all comes after Dassault Falcon began construction last month for a new $60 million expansion project that will hold the company's new aircraft models. Beaudet plans on supplying parts for large jet aircraft.

Exports around the state account for $ 1.8 billion last year. According to the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, the aerospace sector is ranked the largest production of exported goods in the state. The industry directly employs 8,950 people in Arkansas.

Jay Chesshir, president of the Regional Chamber of Commerce in Little Rock stressed the more global companies invest in companies like Daussalt, the more jobs there will be available for Arkansans. " They not only create jobs within the walls of their facility but they create several hundreds of thousands of jobs outside with other smaller companies," said Chesshir.

Smaller companies like Galley Support Innovations work directly with Dassault. " We design, develop and manufacture locks and latches and hinges for Dassault Falcon Jet," said company owner, Wade Radke. "They say we want something, we design it, we use 3-D modeling software, then we send it to our machines, then we manufacture it."
