I know that a few years ago, all those regionals topped out where majors start. The only problem with maintenance, experience has no value to high paying companies. I never understood why anyone with an A&P would work at a regional for Walmart wages.

As a pilot with an A&P I had an opportunity to talk with recruiters from many different industries in which had absolutely nothing to do with aviation. Industries such as the railroads, pipeline companies, energy companies, bottling companies, and wind turbine companies to name a few. All of these industries as well as others paid far more than aviation and had better benefits. More than half of my classmates have nothing to do with aviation at all! You got to keep your eyes on the prize!

I do my best to inform new mechanics that there is no career ladder as an A&P. The FAA has allowed fruit pickers and prison labor to do most of the work domestically. The rest was sent out of the country. Experience has little value so if you cannot start with a major, it's just another dead end job.
