Let us upgrade your legacy PDF, Word, FrameMaker, or even paper manuals to text-searchable, fully linked and interlinked manual sets. Adding links to your existing references will let your team move seamlessly between a component or system’s operation instructions, maintenance procedures, schematics, parts info, and more. Our industry-leading, customizable process will address your unique circumstances to transform your technical manuals into something your team can access from any device.
Our customer Laure Vandenbroucke from Jet Aviation AG stated, “The advantage of one unique document gathering OMM, IPC, WDM manuals from other providers allows the engineers/maintenance team to have one single repository for information. The operation is efficient and avoids losing time looking for documents (latest revisions, etc.)”.
At AEC, we are committed to delivering accurate technical information to those who need it, when they need it, where they need it. Across industries, providing the right information at the point of use emerges as one of the best ways to help your technicians succeed. We can help you help them, by eliminating the unnecessary navigation time caused by physical or digital page-turning.

As the AEC Team wraps up 2016, we wanted to extend a heartfelt thanks to our customers and partners for their dedication and support over the years in allowing us to grow and achieve much success this year. Here is a peak at our year in review that our customers and partners helped us achieve.
Well, it finally happened. After many years of existence of the S1000D specification, civil aviation finally adopted it in earnest. In my estimation it started with Boeing on the 787, followed closely by Airbus with the A350, and the soon-to-enter-into-service Bombardier C-series commercial aircraft.
But the costs can be very high. We ourselves watched with interest the forces pushing for S1000D in civil aviation. Six years ago we made efforts to get educated on it, and to see what the costs would be to get into it.
Since the loss of Swissair Flight 111 on September 2, 1998, the FAA started to look closer at aircraft modifications and the respective documentation, with a focus on the ICAs. While the FARs have always required ICAs, enforcement had been limited to new Type Certificates. After this tragic loss of life, the FAA began to look closer at ICAs for interior modifications. Then came the investigation report after the loss of TWA Flight 800 July 17, 1996 which found no evidence of a terrorist attack. These two horrific accidents put the whole topic of Instructions for Continued Airworthiness front and center for the FAA.
It’s an established fact that English is the international language of civil aviation. And it’s probably safe to say that, in western countries, this is also a fact for military aviation. But let’s stick to civil aviation, for now. The fact is, many maintenance personnel, and others in civil aviation, learn English as a second language. That makes it imperative that when they read an instruction or description that there be no ambiguity. That’s where STE comes in.
