That really depends on what kind of timeline you're basing the definition of success on. Isn't funny how soon people forget how rocky things were for the first couple of years. I saw it first hand, I haven't forgot. Replaceable in small numbers maybe. There just isn't that many qualified A&Ps available nowadays. Especially ones that can pass a background check, and drug screen. Add to that, finding qualified AMTs that are willing to relocate to high cost of living areas, working nites, weekends, and holidays further erodes the chances of enticing new talent. Good luck with that though.
