WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita-based aviation company has announced layoffs but isn’t saying how many employees are affected.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://j.mp/2eoRtHt) reports a spokeswoman for Textron Aviation, parent of Beechcraft and Cessna, confirmed the layoffs Thursday in an email. She did not give specific numbers, but said the layoffs affect a small number of employees.

In September, Textron Aviation announced plans to offer early retirement for an unspecified number of employees and that it would close airplane service centers in Atlanta and New Castle, Delaware. Textron has about 35,000 employees worldwide.
