The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), in partnership with Dassault Falcon and Hawker Beechcraft Corp., will host a General Aviation Jobs for Arkansas forum Aug. 12 with Senator Mark Pryor, Senator Blanche Lincoln and Governor Mike Beebe.
The forum will be held at 9 a.m. at Dassault Falcon’s facility at the Little Rock National Airport with a crowd expected to include more than 500 employees and more than 50 local community leaders.
As the state’s leading export, aviation is critical to Arkansas. The general aviation industry alone contributes more than $1 billion to the statewide economy and supports more than 3,500 manufacturing jobs, according to GAMA officials.
Due to airport security, attendees must register to attend this event.
