Tijuana Aircraft Co
 
Baja California
 
Headed by Gov Abelardo Rodriquez.
 
William Waterhouse was a respected structural analyst and engineer who "... undertook an assignment late in 1927 for the Mexican Government, which wanted to [produce] its own aircraft. Two monoplanes were constructed by Tijuana Aircraft Co, headed by Gov Abelardo Rodriquez of Baja California. Plans were furnished by the Mexican War Department and adapted by Waterhouse.
 
The planes, completed in early 1928. In test flights of the first, an observation type, a German BMW engine was used, but the second ship, expected to carry 380 gallons of fuel and make a non-stop flight to Mexico City, was scheduled for a Wright Whirlwind."
