Welcome to the Aircraft Mechanics Forum.
Anyone know Continental Airlines pay scale progression ??
Check your email
Continental Airlines pay scale
Nothing in e-mail yet.... Hopefully soon...Thanks !
I've done some research on the web getting these. Some of the rates have been through merely emailing employees of the airline and some have been picked straight off the contract. Maybe the Admin could put this in a format for all to see. If anyone works at that airline and the payscale gets changed they could email the Admin or post it on this thread.

Use all the space you need !
Love it, good research ill check with pinnacle
Added cargo carriers, FedEx and UPS!
Any vendor mechanics registered on this site? Specifically, Timco, AAR, Embraer. I'm not too concerned about contract maintenance at outstations. New companies are starting up everywhere, undercutting the airlines. Too much of a pain in the arse to follow pay scales with contract maintenance. Plus, I'd hope nobody would be interested in working as a contract maintenance.
Added Kitty Hawk Cargo. Thanks IndyGTP for PM.
Added PSA, Trans States, and Pinnacle. If anyone sees any descrepancies please PM or post here. The sheet I received was from Chautauqua. In it, was posted the Chautauqua payscale vs some of the other regionals. It was posted in an attempt to keep a mechanic's union away... It has worked so far.

Where at BWI?
I used to work at Butler at BWI back in the late 80's
I believe Fedex tops off at 45.oo ph from what I heard top dogs in pay
45.00? not the fedex I work for, mkay
I may be able to help with Evergreen. My dad is a driver for them.
