So, anyone wanna be an AME....

1. Is anyone a pilot?
2. Does anyone know something about this?
3. Does anyone know of a residency that assists to some degree....

I am thinking after I get my license that this would be a good thing to have...

Thoughts????

Yep, I'm a pilot, and don't think I'd do it. Too much BS from FAA, no independence at all any more, lots of liability for little return.

The FAA's motto is they're not happy until you're not happy, and why be part of that?

Plus, another week in OKC would just suck. I had to go there to become a designated examiner years ago, the worst week I've ever spent in aviation. The FAA could suck the joy out of a 3 year-olds smile.

I am a pilot as well (private, single engine, land). I will probably be an aviation examiner. Would like to give something back to the aviation community. I live in OKC already, so the FAA training wouldn't be too time intensive.
 

Heeed!

Well, OK. I figure that I have give enough to aviation through being a member of Civil Air Patrol and flying/running search missions.

I'm glad that people are willing to become AME's. It's just not for me.

I thought about CAP when I first got licensed, but never got around to joining. As for CFI, that doesn't interest me at all. It would be too difficult to work around a full clinic schedule, airplane availability, and student availability.
