Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Aviation Maintenance Technicians, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Salaries for inexperienced workers average out to $51K, and those with five to 10 years' experience earn a higher median of $41K. Aviation Maintenance Technicians with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $66K. Veterans who have surpassed the 20-year mark may make only slightly more than those who are navigating the mid-career stage; the more senior group reports median earnings of around $71K.
