After so many months of nothing but layoffs, the day that Wichita has been waiting for came Thursday: A planemaker announced it was hiring. Hawker Beechcraft plans to add more than 100 engineers by the end of 2010. Another 40 to 50 people will be hired for its supply chain and operations areas. Rich Jiwanlal, Hawker Beechcraft’s vice president for human resources, said: "To be able to do this in the current environment is a very exciting thing for our company." And our community. Meanwhile, 30 employees of Airbus North America Engineering moved Friday into the former Kansas Sports Hall of Fame building in Old Town — an expansion intended to accommodate 100 employees by 2012.
