Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Aircraft Mechanics with Composite Materials skills, extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. 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 $45K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $48K. After two decades in the workforce, the average Aircraft Mechanic generally earns more than ever; median pay for this group is estimated at $63K.
