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.
Thanks for the feedback!
