"Mark, I wanted to get back with you about what’s been going on. 3 weeks ago I started my job as an apprentice at a company here in Colorado. So far the work is really good and I’m learning a lot getting experience like you told me.
But the really cool thing is I’m already making some really good money because theres alot of work here. Last week I made $800 and as long as I stay working these same hours I should be able to keep making that much. That’s not even full starting pay!
I will send you another message in a few weeks. I really can’t say enough how much I appreciate your help. Thank you! Oh yeah here’s a pic of me standing in front of an engine!!!"
In most other parts of the world they’re known as “Aircraft Maintenance Engineers,” or “AMEs.”
But no matter what they’re called, the work is usually the same. An aircraft mechanic in the U.S. does the same type of work as an aircraft maintenance engineer in in other countries.
Most aircraft mechanics choose one of the following careers:
• Avionics Technician
• Structure Mechanic
• Interior Mechanic
• A&P Mechanic
Avionics technicians work on electrical systems, structure mechanics work on the frame and skin of the aircraft, interior mechanics work on the inside of the aircraft, and A&P mechanics work on the engines and flight controls.
There are also other careers to choose from, but these are the most common.
You can work for an airline at a maintenance base, or at an airline hub next to an airport.
You can also work in maintenance facilities called MROs, which usually service and maintain commercial aircraft.
Some aircraft mechanics choose to work at smaller FBOs, where most individual aircraft owners take their airplanes and helicopters for service.
You will also have many other jobs to choose from, like working in an engine shop, or even a facility that makes aircraft seats.
Some aircraft mechanics choose to travel around the world working in exotic locations.
You can make some really good money as an aircraft mechanic.
The main thing is, you might not make $80,000 when you’re first starting, but it won’t take long for you to get some experience so that you can make more.
I’ve had a really great life as a mechanic. Our house is paid for, all of our automobiles are paid for, and our kids are well taken care of.
It’s also nice to have money so my family can take nice vacations and do other things we enjoy without worrying about how we're going to pay for it. As a matter of fact, we like the beach so much we recently bought a small house near the beach.
And I’m not the only one. Most of my friends work in aviation, and they also make $70,000 - $100,000 + a year.
Most aircraft maintenance engineers working outside of the U.S. have a Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Licence.
To make the most money in this career, you MUST have either an A&P certificate or a Part 66 licence.
BUT you don’t need a certificate or licence to start your career, and a lot of people don’t know this.
Which leads me to the next question...
Many times going to college or an aircraft mechanic school is not your best option, and there are better ways to get the training you need.
Trust me, I spent nearly $30,000 going to a community college to become an aircraft mechanic, and some aviation schools cost even more than this!
The best way to become an aircraft mechanic is through hands-on training.
I’m going to tell you exactly how to do this, and also how to actually make good money WHILE you’re training.
The best part is, the training is very quick so you can start your aviation career FAST.
But before you begin your training, it’s very important that you know if this is the right career for you...
The good news is, almost anyone can be an aircraft mechanic. I’ve worked with people who were only 16 years old all the way up to people who were in their 60s.
But even though you can have a great career, you need to make sure you will enjoy what you’re doing.
I’ve put together a few questions for you to answer so you can tell if being an aircraft mechanic is something you would enjoy.
Really think about each of these questions before choosing your answer.
