What is one of the least intelligent things you have done and then wondered “What was I thinking?!”

The old tongue on the metal dare in February.

What are you most excited about with regards to ABAA’s future?

The growth and the way the industry has taken notice, of the value and the performance of the system. Even more exciting for the future is the interest that ABAA is getting internationally. The saying that I use in training is “Embrace the spec., it is truly here to stay” is so true with other countries seeing us as forerunners in the air barrier world.
