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

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.
