When people in the everyday office grind nearly comes to blows over the office politics of getting a cubicle or an office with a window that looks out over the roof and AC units or the parking lot, then yes.... the view can hold some satisfaction in the job.

Not really sure where you live in the country... i.e. union vs non- union but where I am it takes about 7 to 10 years to become a master plumber or electrician. Until then you're a journeyman making much less.

Master electricians have to get at least a bachelor's but most have a masters in electrical engineering on your own time after working all day. This is all city / state dependent but i would get a lay of the land first.

You're also not getting in the union unless you have an in.

If Iím in my mid-20ís right now, would I end up making more money if I stay as an airline pilot, or would I do better if I become a master electrician?

Never heard a master electrician must have a BS in Electrical Engineering, let alone a Masters. Where did you get that information?

Google Nyc requirements to take the master electrician exam 10,000 hours of experience OR a bachelor's and I think 6000 hours of experience OR a masters and i think 3000 hours of experience.

Those that have the ability are going the education route.

Apprenticeships used to open up once a year but it might be every 3 years now. I'd have to ask around.

What percentage go the degree route? I think very very few. That is based on all the electricians I know. Do you have any data or is it just conjecture, that it is theoretically possible.

Kind of like getting on with one of the majors without a college degree. Theoretically possible, but very very few go down that path and are successful.
