Beechcraft Corp. has been advertising job openings in the newspaper, on billboards and on local radio stations.

The company has more than 80 immediate openings for administrative and professional positions across all parts of the company.

Engineers are a primary focus.

“We’re looking for key talent to add to our team to drive forward 2013 vision and initiatives for the company,” said Beechcraft spokeswoman Nicole Alexander. “We do plan to have additional hiring opportunities as we move through the year.”

The company, formerly Hawker Beechcraft, emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February, becoming Beechcraft Corp.

Beechcraft builds propeller-driven airplanes, the Bonanza, Baron and King Air, and the T-6 military trainer and AT-6 light-attack plane, a derivative of the T-6.

It no longer produces Hawker business jets, including the 4000, 900XP and Premier IA/Hawker 200.

The company also operates its global customer support business, including parts, maintenance, repairs and refurbishments.

At the end of 2012, the company employed 5,400, including 3,372 in Kansas.

Since then, it closed a service facility in Little Rock, Ark., and moved the work to Wichita.

With the move, about 75 jobs transitioned to Wichita.
