My son's pre-school had a field trip at the local airport, in fact the same airport I used to work at as a A&P. Long story short I left A&P work in the late 80's to go back to school. I'm now self employed as a Audio Tech and I have been considering getting back into some possible part time work as an A&P. So what hoops do I need to jump through to get back into the swing of a modern A&P other than the tool I still have? FAA requirements etc. Also what is the prevailing wage these days? In the late 80's I was making $6.50 to $7.50 an hour. Chief or lead mechanic was making $10 - $11 an hour. Obviously this explains why I left. What can I expect these days?
