Technical Writing Services

AEC has been a trusted leader in the creation of technical documents for over three decades. Our staff of experts create documents for leading manufacturers covering a multitude of electrical, mechanical, systems, and software applications. Our experts include technical writers, technical illustrators, former mechanics, technicians, engineers, software developers, editors, and inspectors. We can write documentation to many specifications, both commercial and military, and AEC is ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D certified.

AEC offers consulting on all aspects of your technical writing needs. Our Subject Matter Experts (SME) have in-depth knowledge of industry requirements and processes, and act as a stakeholder in your process–playing a critical role in defining customers’ needs, requirements, and supporting software.

AEC has in-house and on-call writers and illustrators with significant technical knowledge in various industries, including aircraft, transportation, defense, maintenance, operations, avionics, electronics, mechanical systems, structures, engineering, and more. This depth of knowledge allows us to author many types of technical instructions and data.

We create documents that are technically accurate, visually appealing and compliant within your specifications. We can help customers determine the type of manual to create based on what a customer is trying to accomplish and communicate. We can use industry standard formats and specifications or create custom layouts and designs.

Writing & Illustrating Formats

We’re experts at publishing in FrameMaker, Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign and Penant’s suite of S1000D software–with tens of thousands of technical documents published. We utilize custom apps to maximum our efficiency, including custom plug-ins for FrameMaker, Word, and Excel.

Our illustrators come from a multitude of backgrounds and have decades of combined experience with different illustration techniques, including hand-drawn, orthographic, isometric and 3D. We can handle different types of vector and raster images, and are experienced with many illustration and CAD design software packages, including IsoDraw, Adobe Illustrator, AutoCAD, CATIA, Inventor, Solid Works, CorelDraw, and many more.

Aviation Maintenance and Certification

AEC has tremendous expertise with aviation maintenance, including fixed wing, rotorcraft, piston, turbine, avionics, electronics, mechanical, systems, structures, instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA/ICAW), airworthiness limitations, scheduled maintenance, electrical wiring, and more. We’re FAA CFR experts, and we can help companies understand how these regulations affect their aircraft and component certifications.

S1000D & ATA iSpec-2200 Specifications

We’re experts with the ATA 100, iSpec-2200, and S1000D specifications. These specifications provide guidance on how to assemble, format, and publish technical information in formats that are universally accepted in the aerospace industry. We’re adept at determining which portions of the specifications are critical and helping our customers avoid costly adherence when unnecessary.
