Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Aircraft Mechanics with Composite Materials skills, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Folks who are navigating the first five years of their careers have a median salary of approximately $44K in this position. Those who have been around for five to 10 years don't get much more, though; the median salary in that group is $44K. Aircraft Mechanics with Composite Materials skills bring in $50K after working for 10 to 20 years. Ultimately, more time spent in the workforce does seem to translate to bigger paychecks; seasoned veterans with more than 20 years of experience report a median income of $64K.
