Tyler Aviation Company Downsizes

39 aviation workers were laid off this week at Tyler's Av Craft Aviation.

Located near Tyler Pounds Field, Av Craft fabricates new interiors for corporate jets, but after a major customer filed bankruptcy, Av Craft says it had no choice but to reduce it's workforce from 85 to 46 employees.

Av Craft hopes these will be short-term layoffs and expects to rehire many of it's former employees when new jobs are booked.
