Unlike some positions we've seen, that job can't be filled by a
desperate TW lacking the proper skills. Gene Kim-Eng can correct me on
this one, but "complex digital avionic products" are probably subject to
severe regulatory scrutiny. Substandard documentation could put the
company at risk for losing the contract altogether.
