    I build Learjets.

    Well, the last 20 mos., I overhaul worn parts as a repair technician for the Customer Service part of the Learjet plant.
    Actuators, Nose Wheel Steering, Generator/Starters, etc, etc.
    The previous 11.5 years was on the other side of the taxiway building new production Lear 31A's, 40's, 45's, and 60's, along with some work on Canadair BD100's.

    I am a bartender, but that doesn't come close, so I do odd labor jobs on the side for extra cash. I'm almost finished with my education so hopefully I'll see some cash flow soon.

    I own a small engine repair shop in Lake Havasu. It doesnt even come close to covering my boating cost. So I do tile, custom built patio bars, and hardwood floors on the side.

    Engine builder by trade, but the family/life uses up most of that!

    I have 2 CNC lathes in the garage that I build Pinewood Derby wheels and axles on to pay for the fun stuff.

    I'm an Avionics Manager/technician. We have a fleet of corporate aircraft for charter from King Airs to Challengers. We have a Lear 31 and a 60. Funny how small the world really is. I used to work with some guys from the Lear factory.

    Used to have unlimited overtime, doing aircraft avionics upgrades my full time job, now it's a 40 hr week. Did auto/body repair on the side for many years, till my neighbor complained. Trade time, with an auto repair shop, and a collision body shop, for use of the facilities. Needless to say, things have really slowed in the past year or two.
