Petaluma companies Solairus Aviation and Labcon will add a total of 124 new employees, thanks to a state tax break. The incentives are aimed at encouraging businesses to add jobs and invest in the California economy.

With its $1.1 million, the aviation services company plans to hire 77 new full-time pilots, administrators and other workers over the next five years. The company also intends to spend $275,000 to expand its office space in Petaluma.

Labcon, a medical research products supplier, will receive $800,000 in tax credits in exchange for adding 47 full-time workers and investing $17.4 million.
