I've been following the thread but not closely enough so apologies if this has been mentioned. Didn't a US Aggressor company lose a couple of Hunters in quite quick succession recently - were the circumstances similar? I wonder if it won't be regulation that stoofs event flying; rather, the cost of indemnity.

Does anyone know how much it costs to insure a private flying operation, and what the scrutineering and underwriting criteria will now include?

That's not a rhetorical question, I don't know and would be interested to get an idea. I've managed to get some suitably qualified and experienced clients who do event flying at standard rates, it'll be interesting to see how more resilient underwriters become to shouty people who can argue a case with (generally) more insight.
