I think if they stopped paying me for writing software design docs and market wiped my savings, I would go welding. Or carpentry. For an amateur I am pretty good at that.

I see the welding trajectory being quite suitable for you. Having the ability to repair your trash can like a pro wouldn't hurt eh.

Wanna wrench on airplanes?
I've been looking at applying there. You got an in? lol

You have your A&P?

Kinda, miss the hanger.. If that job didn't travel 6 months of the year, I'd probably still be there.

I'm afraid I can't be an airplane mechanic remotely.

But what if they are RC planes?

This thing is rad. Looks quite promising too, at least a lot more promising than a lot of the EVTOL concepts/prototypes out there. Bell Helicopter/Flight, whatever they are calling themselves these days, are working on similar designs but I haven't heard anything groundbreaking lately. https://www.bellflight.com/products/bell-nexus

go for a higher value skills and look to work in industries where you can clearly add value over charging for your labour.
Welding, fabricating and machine work are good entry points and relatively easy to get training on.

I have a few friends who work in chemicals/food/processing as fabricators and they clean up.

I have a phone interview with Benchmade on Thursday so we'll see how that goes. It's only for an assembler position but it could be an ok gateway.
