Unfortunately, this sounds more like a sales pitch than

There was no information at the web site that I could find that
indicated where any of these craft were sold, and the primary
purpose was (as you note) surveilance.  How is it known that
Mexico has bought "many" of them, and for what purpose?

The AVRO car, which seems to be getting some attention lately, is
very old news and the "Bombardier" craft you've mentioned has
been mentioned several times in the past year as a probable cause
for some UFO reports.  Given its size, I'd be surprised if it was
very noticable from the ground when it was working at its maximum
altitude, but reflected light might be noticable and reported as
an unknown.  On the other hand, I would suspect some strobing
effect with two whirling blades keeping it aloft.

But the Mexico sightings I've seen show no strobing effect, and
there is no paper trail to show that there were any of these
craft in Mexico City at the time.  If one can show that there
were several being tested at the time (and Mexico City seems like
a poor choice for such a test), then it might be plausible as an
