I work with about 15 other AME's, and I would say that only about two of them wish they were doing something else. For sure we all have complaints, but over all, I think most of us are happy. We have good pay, no shift work, and not a lot of pressure. I have seen the other side of it: crap pay, shift work, and pressure to get things done. And I'm still here. Aviation has been good to me, and thus my family, even with all the warts.

Doug, I don't think it's fair to assume that he works for the Gov't just because he's got good working conditions. Those companies are out there. They're not usually air operators though.

Aviation had been pretty good for me. Yes the pay could be better, yes there are sometimes I wished I did something else. Being a AME has in the end provided a good career and a relatively comfortable life for me and my family so far.
