WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Cessna Aircraft Co. tells its employees it is laying off 2,000.

The announcement was made in an e-mail to workers Monday. The work force reductions will be implemented across the Wichita-based company's facilities and affect all pay categories.

Spokesman Robert Stangarone says workers will receive a 60-day notice within the next few weeks, with the cuts actually happening in March.

Cessna is Wichita's biggest employer, with 12,000 employees. The company also has 1,300 people working at its Independence, Kansas facility.
