Tucson, Arizona (PressExposure) October 13, 2009 -- Aerospace manufacturers currently in production in Mexico, as well as those considering options for low-cost country investment and sourcing will gather in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico from October 20 -22, 2009 at The Offshore Group's Aerospace Manufacturing in Mexico Conference.
Ricardo Dominguez Quijano will be one of the event's featured speakers. Mr. Dominguez, of the Mexican Professional Aeronautical Engineers Association, will discuss the provisions and ramifications of a 2007 agreement that enables aerospace companies in Mexico to certify aerospace designs and components in accordance with US Standards, and in compliance with FAA Regulatory issues. The Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement, or BASA, aims to streamline production and to avoid costly recertifications or secondary reviews.
