I am told by those that have set up these new 'initial' organisations that it has been an expensive nightmare with a mass of regulations and a need to provide considerably more infrastructure. Personally I am in the dark; I see no extra facilities, although they do have the ability to send a pilot to a specialist as does every doctor, and medicine is full of regulations and requirements. But I am reporting what I am told

My suspicion is that other AMEs are just not interested. They are facing increased bureaucracy and inspections themselves, and their professional indemnity insurance has increased so much that it really isnt viable unless you do it fairly full time. most would not contemplate this. This perfect storm is unique to the UK

The worry is that choice may fall further as the current band of AMEs retire or give up.
