How much money does an aircraft mechanic earn?
That is a broad statement. I am an aircraft mechanic and I have worked for 3 different places in my career so far. It totally depends on what you are doing for starters. Most places will start a mechanic with low experience out at around 12 to 16 bucks an hour depending. After you get a little experience you can contract for quick money and bring home about a 1000 bucks a week on about 60 hours. You have to plan for your own retirement in that situation as a downer. It is a good temporary start. Most contracts are 18 - 20 an hour with per dium and that is how you come out at the 1000 bucks a week. You can check aviationjobs.com to browse the different pay rates for different contracts in different places. After you get 3 - 6 years experience you should be aiming toward getting a job with one of the majors. These days FedEx, Ups, Southwest are the only decent places to work. Jet Blue is okay but not near as competitive. After a few short years at one of these and you will be at 40 bucks an hour at least and have pension/benefits/etc. to go along with it. Hopefully aviation will turn around and more opportunities will present itself but in the meantime knowledge is power. You gotta be better than the next guy as interviews become harder and harder with the massive availability of mechanics in the system now. Good Luck.... Corporate aviation is another route that has the potential to make as much or more than contracting. If you make it to a manger position at a larger corporate flight department you can likely make 100k+. Also, due to the high average age of aircraft mechanics, there is likely to be a shortage of mechanics in the future due to the baby boomers retiring.

Answer The median expected salary for a typical HVAC Mechanic I in the United States is $36,829. More info can be found here: http://swz.salary.com/salarywiza…rd/layouthtmls/swzl_compresult_national_SC16000026.html >>>>> I guess it depends on the area. Here in NJ the current rate for Union mechanics is appx $32.00 per hour and an exeptional mechanic can negotiate for more.
These days its very hard to specify how much a Auto mechanic or Technician as there now known. This is because different places have different rates. E.G I worked at a indepe…ndent specialist and staff were getting £35,000 a year My mate worked at a local garage And staff were getting £28,500 a year This is mostly because my garage charges a high hourly rate because we use high tech equipment the manufactures use. But a regular mechanic is looking at something between £27-30,000 a year The average salary that a mechanic can make is about $39,000 a year.
Marine Mechanics generally start out making under $15.00 per hour, depending on experience, training, and location. With experience and certification, a mechanic can e…xpect to make $17-30 per hour at a dealership, depending on location. Areas with a high cost of living will obviously pay higher. Diesel technicians typically earn more than gas technicians. However, in most areas (even Florida) work is highly seasonal, and winter layoffs are not uncommon.
diesel mechanics wagesto answer your question will depend on where you live and how much experience you have also are you specialized in a certain area of diesel i.e electroni…cs,drive trains . Kingston area is any where from 19 to 28 dollars per hour . In other areas if you work on tractors and big rigs you could probably make a decent amount, anywhere over $60 an hour. Diesel mechanics are big in pay.
I'm a french aircraft structural repairer and I earn 2000 euros a month. I work for the french state. I've been doing that for 15 years.
Answer aprox: $40,000 per year
It depends on what kind of education he or she has
The hourly pay of a mechanic may vary, depending on if they work in privately own garages. Weekly pay could vary from $478- $862 for 40 hours of work.
85,000 if inexpirienced 150,000 if expirienced
Depends who you are working for and the type of work you are doing. A floor mechanic with an A&P at Gulfstream's service center earns about $23 an hour. Experienced mech…anics working for corporations or private owners are about double that figure, but keep in mind your hours will vary and you will most likely be on salary (no O/T). If you're a maintenance manager, you could be at or above a $100,000 per year. Learn the whole airplane (including avionics and electrical) and you will get a higher salary from an owner/operator. Large corporations with deep pockets and flying big iron usually pay the best.
Most make about 50,000 to 70,000 as beginners, but experienced and mid level engineers can make around 100,000 or around that mark. Very experienced or exceptionaly talented e…ngineers can even make up to 250,000 a year.
That depends on the jobs you do. The type of vehicles you work on and what you and the customer think is a fair price. It also depends on if your neighbors will deal with you …having a home shop.
Answer That depends on what he or she does, and the education him or her be having. Answer Most mechanics do not receive an hourly wage. Instead, they are paid by a sys…tem called flat rate. Every job that can be done from changing oil to rebuilding a transmission is uniformly given a particular amount of time in which the average mechanic can finish the job. For example, an oil change might pay two-tenths of an hour (12 minutes). The mechanic is paid for 12 minutes of work no matter if it takes him/her five minutes or five hours. As mechanics become more experienced and have more tenure at their place of employment, they are often faster than the "average" time, so they have the opportunity to work 40-hour weeks but actually clock more than 40-hours of flat-rate time. It is only in this situation that a mechanic can make more than a decent salary. Beginning mechanics usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to jobs. They are more likely to spend a whole day doing oil changes because it is really difficult to do an oil change correctly in under 12 minutes. They are also more likely to get the hourly pay rather than the flat-rate pay so that they can be handed some of the other low-end jobs (like sweeping and mopping, which don't count toward flat-rate time). Hourly rates vary quite a bit across the country and in different shops. Large corporations may pay as much as $15 per hour, but the typical hourly scenario is usually around $8-10. The problem with the flat rate system is that it forces mechanics to fight each other over the jobs that can be done the fastest compared to their book times. For some mechanics, this increases the drive to find something else to fix on a car, or to line up several cars for themselves to work on, thereby increasing the waiting time per vehicle. This is why there are so many mechanic horror stories. Additionally, if a shop has a slow week, a mechanic may not bring enough money home to pay his/her bills. This makes planning for a family or a vacation or saving money very difficult. Working in a dealership setting is a good way to gain experience and to get paid to go to school or get formal training. However, unless you have a particular skill that is in demand, the pay is pretty stinky. Private shops (Joe Schmoe's Auto Service, etc.) usually have better pay and the same benefits but are not as concerned with offering education pay. Large corporations (Goodyear, Midas, etc.) offer the best benefits, low pay, and little interest in continuing education. In order to make good money as a mechanic, a person needs to: (1) become ASE master certified or better; (2) specialize in automatic transmissions; (3) be a diesel mechanic; (4) find a fleet job; (5) specialize in drivability/engine repair; or (6) stay in one place a long, long, time. The amount they make depends several factors. Some get paid hourly, and some get a percentage of their billed flag time. Flag time is a book estimate for a job. If they make say, 30 dollars (a high guess) per flag hoour billed, and do a 2 hour job in one hour, they made 60 dollars that hour. The mechanic does not receive the whole labor rate ($60/hr or more) because they do not own the shop, the lifts or have to pay for the shop's advertising. Others make a flat hourly rate. For example, as a mechanic's apprentice I made 7.50/hr because I was very good considering no formal training. My coworker made approx $14.50. he had many years experience, but was not an expert a A full service mechanic (someone that does everything) can make anywhere from $55-$75 per hour. However, I am not sure what the pay rates are for someone who works for a business such as Pep Boys or Goodyear. If you owned your shop you could charge that much because that's what the median rate is for a mechanic. Read more: How much money does an auto mechanic earn
