Contract engineer rates

Recommended Posts

I’d appreciate some feedback on what the industry average rates are for a contract engineer. My situation is that although I’m not able to sign off on the maintenance carried out in the journey log on the particular machines I’m fixing (DOM does that) I’m also a line pilot on 1 of the machines. (Yes, that does mean I’m lucky enough to be fixing things when the other pilots are sitting around, lucky me.)

Is the standard a day rate or an hourly rate, & how much?

No signing authority means that you are essentially an apprentice.  If you're skilled and licensed then you're worth more.

Say $22 an hour for apprentice and $30 an hour minimum for non ACA engineer.

$45 an hour for ACA would be okay.

Where and when are you wrenching? That makes a difference also.
