On September 2nd, 2009, the American Bonanza Society started its
40th annual convention in Salt Lake City. Featuring over 50
hours of seminars directed towards Beech enthusiasts and owners
alike, the five-day event included educational classes, speakers,
and social activities for attendees.
During the event, the ABS invited Bryan Neville, acting
National Outreach Manager for FAASTeam, to speak about decision
making for the pilot community.
As Neville explained, capable decision making is a crucial
aspect of risk management for pilots. Most accidents caused
by pilot failure are triggered by the number one impediment to good
decision making: stress. While a small amount of stress
does help raise awareness levels, too much stress (be it too much
stress over a given period time, or too much initial stress)
drastically degrades performance abilities.
While it is impossible to completely eliminate stress in
one’s life, pilots can gain the knowledge and preparation
ahead of time to make sure that stress does not have a debilitating
affect in the cockpit.
Join Aero-TV as Neville explains how pilots can maximize their
safety and well being by recognizing the effects of stress and
developing successful coping mechanism for when stress does
