It's the new "modern math" they're teaching the kids in schools these days.

Actually I'm guessing that:
- the OP originally put "217,000", and then edited it;
- or John read it as "217,000" when it actually said "317,000".

Either way, I've spent more time on this thread than I should have.

The former is possible, but the latter more likely. I quoted him, and if he changed his post, I don't think it would have altered the quote. If the quote is correct, then I misread the numbers in his initial post.

The other comments remain unchanged.

This the grease monkey section, nothing of any interest to a pilot here.

I'm a Comm pilot/A&P, that does neither professionally currently. However, I'm in claims and talk/visit shops and operators on a weekly basis. Obviously I'm one of those rated airmen that is not actively in maintenance, and we have several other claims guys in our company that have A&Ps but don't work as one. I've also worked in the space industry building satellites, and that industry has tons of A&Ps no longer in aviation. In the field currently, I talk to maintenance managers that are dying for help, from large corporate iron down to entry level GA. They can't find A&Ps to save their lives. And boy, if you know avionics you can name your price. So the official numbers might say one thing, but on the ground the landscape is quite different, at least from my perspective. Ok, that's all I got, I'll extract myself from the running argument now.

There's no argument to be had. Your observation is quite correct, and there's no point arguing against the truth.

Thank you for the report. I am happy to hear that there are good opportunities for A&Ps that were displaced or unable to find gainful employment in the industry.

Well I know we are hiring, We have even dropped the 6 year heavy jet experience requirement to
get hired. We don't start out at a great hourly rate but in 5 years you are at the leading pay rate in the industry
