FORT WORTH - Fort Worth-based Bell Helicopter is cutting 320 jobs at its facilities in Fort Worth and Amarillo.
Roughly 80 people were laid off in Amarillo, while 240 were let go in Fort Worth.
The layoffs were caused by defense budget cuts and the cancellation of the Kiowa warrior project, according to Bell spokeswoman Jenna Tyler.
The affected workers will be given severance packages and assistance in seeking jobs.
