From about $26/hr to about $35/hr licensed and endorsed. I believe the top end goes a bit higher for WestJet mainline.

Up in this corner of the country from my experience an ACA can expect to start around $30/hr ish and work up to about $40/hr ish.

youll make more money on helis, even just as an ame with endorsements youll make more then a crew chief even on big jets. If your goal is money then go heli. if your goal is happiness, go back to school!

Absolutely. The money is in rotorwing. HOWEVER there is zero stability and you are gone from home 80% of the year. If you are looking for some degree of stability and have a life, try to get on with a fixed wing shop.
