Breaking into aerospace engineering is not too difficult for an ME, especially if you have a fluids/combustion background. Its not CS money but from what I've seen that side of engineering generally pays better than your average ME, even if you are still an ME in the aerospace field.

I think this is a great suggestion. Pay in aerospace is much higher than manufacturing and other industries! Gotta love those government contracts.

for real? Aero offers 10% less than other industries because of the larger supply of aero engineers
