The Aerospace Cluster of Baja California foments the development of the industry in the state, starting in schools, and not merely with the injection and promotion of foreign investment, which by the end of 2018, Baja California estimates approximately US$2 billion in exports.

What the strategy consists of is to nurture and encourage universities to improve teaching that allows not only trained technicians to be developed, but engineers in aeronautics as well.

"We are a benchmark in the aerospace sector at a national level and we commit ourselves to the development that begins in schools," said the president of the cluster, Tomas Sibaja.

Recently, the Universidad del Tecnologico de Tijuana received a second airplane, as a donation, from the state’s cluster. The first airplane was received in 2016 and, in both cases, the objective was for the school to use the airplane as practice material by students studying Aeronautical Engineering.
