Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase in this role. At career start (within the first five years), average income sits near $53K, and the average for folks who have worked for five to 10 years is only slightly higher at $55K. Helicopter Mechanics bring in $59K after working for 10 to 20 years. As Helicopter Mechanics reach more than two decades on the job, compensation remains commensurate with experience; the average pay in this group is $62K.
