Hey there- I'm a 2T2X1 aka Air Transporter more commonly known as a porter or port dawg.
There are many "jobs" within this career field. Everything ranging from cargo processing (driving forklifts and building cargo pallets), to loading cargo and passengers onto aircraft. We also handle "fleet" duties (loading the food/water onto a/c as well as servicing the latrines). Once you get some experience you will move up to other duties such as load planning (planning the cargo to go on a flight and figuring out the center of balance of the loaded aircraft), etc.
As a porter you will have PLENTY of opportunity to see the world. I have been to Japan, Korea, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Honduras, Iraq, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, and even Antarctica.
As far as landing a 6 figure job on the outside... good luck! This career field doesn't really translate very well to a civilian career except for working for the airlines/FedEx/UPS etc. And those companies don't pay that well starting off. You CAN earn 6 figures by working for Kellog Brown and Root doing air transportation jobs in the middle east. If you're single and don't mind living in the middle east for a couple of years you could easily save up a ton of money by working for them.
Feel free to email me if you have any other questions!
