    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.

    der

    making 100K at MRO??? There is no such thing no one is paying 50$ an hour at MRO or anywhere for that issue. Maybe if they offer unlimited overtime @ 30$ an hour max and you work yourself to death but whatever. Some people make exaggerations but OK AOG doesnt even pay 50 an hour.

    Pretty much everyone at JetEast is in the high 40s/low 50s. Given you're in that part of the country so you kinda need that pay. Landmark in TEB still pays like shit in the mid-high 30s but they can't keep anyone for longer than 1-2 years until their scooped up by someone else. They guys who made out like kings were the old EJM road team guys. Those guys were never in the hangar, always on the road. Every road trip was instant 1.5 pay and all those guys were mid-high 30s. So do the math, pretty much all those guys were in that 150-200K+ mark. Given they only had 4 or 6 guys nation wide?
