The Aerospace Project in the Azores
PRA-Raposo, Sá Miranda & Associados will be responsible for the legal advice of the aerospace company OA-Espaço - a pioneer in the Azores which is led by former NASA astronaut John Daniel Olivas (Danny Olivas). The project has the support of the Government of the Azores and is in line with the region’s government strategy, which aims to position itself as a transatlantic “hub” for activities related to Space and Aerospace. Danny Olivas has been engaged in space related projects in the Azores since 2017.
“We are very pleased to be able to be part of this unique project in the Azores that will certainly have such an impact on retaining manpower and attracting talent to the Autonomous Region”, said Joana de Sá, Partner of PRA and leader of the legal team in charge of advising the company. “This is an area in which we intend to consolidate our operations this year”, she concluded.
OA-Espaço is based on the Azorean island of São Miguel and will provide services from consulting in the area of engineering and management of aerospace projects, as well as other projects related to materials, design, development, manufacture and implementation of products intended for the aerospace industry or even the manufacture, repair, maintenance, rental and sale of aircrafts.
