Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. The median compensation for relatively untried workers is $41K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $51K. On average, Aviation Maintenance Technicians make $66K following one to two decades on the job. Aviation Maintenance Technicians who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't as high as one would expect; the median compensation for this crowd sits around $71K.
