That is BS, the Jobs will be in Jacksonville Florida and elsewhere in the US. This is just another worthless union screeming because they can't compete. Check the performance between the A-29 and the AT-6 "Oh that right there is no AT-6" it needs to be designed and prototyped.

Teepee - thats funny!!!! Hawker started moving jobs to Mexico in 2010 and just competed the rest of the moves. Guess some Mexicans may lose some of thier jobs. Good news - more jobs coming to Florida for the Super Tucano.
