A Mexican conglomerate is holding talks with the Guanajuato government on building an aviation complex in the Mexican state that will design and assemble planes as well as train pilots.
IK Aerospace Group, made up of light aircraft manufacturer Horizontec, aircraft interior manufacturer Siasa Air and aerospace software company Optimen, told the local newspaper Milenio that the new complex could be built in one of the 3 Guanajuato municipalities: León, San Miguel de Allende or Purísima del Rincón.
Construction of the facility, which will be the 1st of its kind in Mexico, requires approximately 100 hectares of land.
Giovanni Angelucci Carrasco, founder of Horizontec, explained that the idea for the project is to have a private runway, a manufacturing plant, an aircraft maintenance center and a flying school for pilots, which could include future customers who purchase light planes manufactured at the new complex.
The three companies belonging to the IK Aerospace Group consortium would combine forces to build the new 100% Mexican aircraft known as the Halcón 2 at the complex slated to be built in Guanajuato.
