90k+ Australian based, expect extra for touring part time. 4 on 4 off (weeks) out of new guinea is around 135k but 48% flat tax rate. More for group 20 experience. Pm for more details. Come on license!

It's a pretty vague question mate, are you living in the middle of nowhere or a quiet workshop on the coast? Do you share the load of the Chief Engineer or are you just on the tools? How many different airframes are you expected to work and be competent on? Does every pilot have your mobile number or are you a 8 to 5 guy? Etc etc etc. Why do you ask?

Like the last post, very dependant on where you live, rosters, etc..... There are some pretty damn good wages on offer at the moment, even for fixed base engineers. But depending on your location, you may have to move....

Can PM for a couple of companies worth hitting up....

RR250 is bugger all, its for GA types, Group 20 is what you need with relevant engine type then think 6 figures

A great engineer is worth every cent, problem is the ratio between engineers being good and bad is way out ,
