Everybody likes comparisons, especially if considering something big like which career path to follow or a possible job change.

Like last year, AMT has partnered with Avjobs.com to provide salary statistics based on current job offerings. Salaries don’t reflect differences in pay based on location or type of aircraft. And job titles are based on employer input, so they may vary.
