Cessna announced Thursday it will layoff 1,500 workers.

Officials say the cuts are the result of lowered production rates. Cessna will deliver more than 300 planes this year but next year they expect to deliver fewer than 250.

Employees will begin receiving their 60-day notices within a few weeks.

These newest cuts will bring the number of local plane company layoffs to about 9,600.
