    If it's straight salary its a raw deal. $100k is slowly becoming a standard in aviation for anyone with some experience who doesn't completely suck

    Thats $50hr. You can get it but certainly not common pay. After looking at inflation calculators, the low end pay is a lot better now than 25 years ago when they were making over 20,000 new A&Ps a year. Supply and demand is what drives our pay rates outside of union shops.

    No, $50/hr isn't bad if there's overtime. If it's straight salary its more or less a raw deal. If my gross isn't 75-100%+ higher than my base, it's not worth wild. I mean hell you can make over $100k gross working in the MRO

    At some point quality of life will be a factor for most people. Especially when a family is involved. Young people understandably focus on take home pay. It's all the other things like benefits, scedule, and location that make for a good family life. Kids don't realize that second shift, weekends, and holidays can last until your hair is grey if not forever. I urge people to think about these things before they invest too much of their lives in such a narrowly focused industry.

    Orion is always looking for people to work at AMMROC. Just like the shady companies hiring to work F-15s in Saudi Arabia.

    If you're single and need to get some experience it might be worth it.
