Ten Jobs That Pay $80,000 Per Year …

What do Lauren Bush’s engagement ring, and the Icon CJ3B Army Jeep have in common? They’re two of the things you can buy with $80,000. And while most working stiffs can only dream of plunking down that kind of cash, the median family income in the U.S. brings in only around $50,000 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) there are some career tracks that can bring those luxury visions a little closer to reality.

Here are ten jobs that earn at least $80,000, according to online salary database PayScale.com, all in industries that are expected to grow through 2018.

Median Income: $89,600

The sky’s literally the limit if you’ve always dreamed of flying for a living. According the International Airline Pilots Association, there are many paths to the cockpit but you must have a combination of pilot certificates and ratings, as well as flight experience, and a great attitude. Veterans of the armed services are particularly in demand due to the military’s excellent training and the well-rounded education such a background provides. Bonus: the military route won’t cost a thing.
