Airbus provided opportunities for my own personal growth as a technical writer/illustrator
Pros: excellent health benefits
Cons: challenging at times to obtain source data
I was the first actual technical writer to create documentation for Airbus. Documents prior to my joining the company were created by engineers. This was a great opportunity for me to develop every aspect of the process including standards, task flow, and production which enhanced the manuals greatly. I provided professionally written documents which were consistent in style and form across the enterprise and product line.
Along with the written portion of the documentation my strong graphic skills allowed me to further enhance the information to exceed the typical engineering graphics. When engineering graphics didn't provide the necessary understanding I would create graphics that would. When asked, I provided graphics to engineering and management for reports, presentations, and engineering drawings.
