Healthy economies tend to house Just-In-Time production plants that sometimes depend on urgent air deliveries to keep functioning, for which helicopters are increasingly considered a suitable mode of transport. The Mexican tourism industry also depends heavily on aviation. Huatulco provides an example of untapped tourism potential because no flights directly connect with the city. Redwings became the first enterprise to develop a product based on the use of helicopters for tourism. Since then we have developed a product called Helitour that flies in Mexico City and we are in the process of building a heliport in Teotihuacan. The country has several destinations that could benefit from helicopter tours, including Los Cabos, Tuxtla or Sierra Gorda.
