SSG (Join to see) - You know what, you're absolutely right. Also, think about the flight benefits. Also as you become more senior then you get paid very well and you still get to pick and choose. I know many FAs that work only a couple days a month and still make good money. Plus, everyone that signs up for the Red mastercard or whatever they are pushing and gets approved puts another $50 in the FAs pocket. I just found out some first year FAs at AA earned over 100K in just credit card signups alone.

Thank you for posting a great question (Join to see)
I expect you gained much experience as a UH-60 (Blackhawk) Repairer in your military experience.
1. If you are well-skilled at repairing helicopters, their are contractor roles in repairing other flying systems such as NASA and those contractors with successful bids for follow-on-helicopters. Those could be very high paying. Generally the contractor role is more lucrative.
As in many areas, highest pay for least job security tends to be the way things progress. Depending on your risk tolerance this could be a path.
2. Similarly, training the trainer can be a lucrative path - requires good organization and communicative skills which you may possess. Similarly getting with one of the big contractor firms through a follow-on helicopter contact is an option.
3. Foreign Military Service contracts can be incredibly lucrative but require you to spend time overseas. Saudi Arabia has a long-term relationship with us. Israel does to but they tend to grow their own [I worked with the IAF on a USAF FMS contact part time from 1994 to 1997].
4. Contracting out to a foreign nation such as India, Australia and other nations with helicopter fleets that are expanding could make sense.
Thank you, my friend LTC (Join to see) for mentioning me.
