Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Jet Aircraft Mechanics — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings.

Jet Aircraft Mechanics bring in $58K after working for 10 to 20 years.
