WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Cessna Aircraft says it has laid off some salaried workers but the company declined to say how many people lost their jobs.

The company announced the layoffs Thursday. The move came a month after Cessna offered a voluntary retirement program for hourly and salaried workers.

The cuts did not affect hourly employees represented by the Machinists union. Union officials say they don't expect any layoffs of their workers in the near future.

Cessna said last month that it would cut production this year because of weak demand for its light jet products.
