Mexico City, Mexico — Mexico has undergone another International Aviation Safety Assessment Audit. On Friday, The Secretariat of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) reported on their latest audit.

“The International Aviation Safety Assessment Audit (IASA) was concluded with the presence of seven inspectors from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States. The foregoing with the aim of Mexico recovering Category 1 in terms of aviation safety,” the SICT said in a statement.

Their visit took place throughout this week at the facilities of the Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC), where Mexican officials answered 316 questions related to air safety, airworthiness, legislation, procedures and human and financial resources.
