Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Aviation Mechanics, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $43K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $50K. On average, Aviation Mechanics make $55K following one to two decades on the job. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $60K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
