Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience seems to be a major factor in determining the incomes of Aviation and Aerospace Project Engineers. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $66K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $83K. Aviation and Aerospace Project Engineers with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $98K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $102K on average.
