7. Those "whiz bang" avionics onrepparttar new planes create inferior pilots!

Onrepparttar 116302 contrary! Today's new equipment is all designed with increased safety asrepparttar 116303 prime motivator! Weather systems, traffic, navigational systems all providerepparttar 116304 pilot with additional tools and resources inrepparttar 116305 cockpit where they're needed! After all, what good are they onrepparttar 116306 ground? Of course,repparttar 116307 pilots need additional training to learnrepparttar 116308 equipment. . . Inferior pilot????

8. Finding a partner will make my aircraft purchase easier.

Well, perhaps financially. But isrepparttar 116309 money you save worth losing availability, as well as a friend/partner? There are several areas for conflict from fair distribution of finances to cleanliness ofrepparttar 116310 airplane. Before I throw a wet towel overrepparttar 116311 idea let me also admit that many partnerships are very successful. Just remember. . . your choice of partner should be taken very seriously. In fact some say that choosing your partner is similar to choosing a spouse!

9. Leasebacks are all 1-sided. (In favor ofrepparttar 116312 flight school)

Just like choosing a partner, choosingrepparttar 116313 right flight school to partner with is critical torepparttar 116314 success of your leaseback. If you've done your due diligence, you'll findrepparttar 116315 leaseback arrangement to be a "win-win-win" situation: The school wins because they keep their cash for growing their business

The owner wins with revenue generated and terrific tax incentives.

The flight students win because they now have one more airplane at their disposal.

Once again. . . proper planning!

When You Sing, Do You Breathe Virtually?

Written by A K Whitehead

Continued from page 1

Fillrepparttar lungs from bottom up. Try to breathe so thatrepparttar 116301 lower parts of your lungs expand first, right down atrepparttar 116302 bottom. Continue to inhale and feelrepparttar 116303 lungs expand fromrepparttar 116304 bottom upwards. The first time can make one a little dizzy, but it is onlyrepparttar 116305 first time.

Breathe in counting fairly slowly from one to ten. Holdrepparttar 116306 breath for a second and then exhale over a count of twenty atrepparttar 116307 same rate. You may not manage twenty at first, but with practice you will. And as you practice, over a prolonged period of time, gradually slow downrepparttar 116308 rate of counting to one second each count. Eventually, you may be able to exhale over thirty seconds or even more.

4. Breathe Anytime You don't need to leave your breathing exercises at home. Take them with you whenever you are walking. Breathe in to a given number of steps, and then try to breathe out over twice as many. It's a harder excercise than stood at home, but rewarding inrepparttar 116309 development of your technique and what you can and once could not do with your breathing.

5. Breathe On Your Feet And On Your Back Standing up isrepparttar 116310 usual position, but there can be advantages in other breathing positions. For example. sit down in a chair with a firm back, or onrepparttar 116311 floor with your back againstrepparttar 116312 wall. Breathe in deeply, filling fromrepparttar 116313 bottom as usual. Feel your lungs fill and expand as they push againstrepparttar 116314 wall or chair.

Try doingrepparttar 116315 same laid flat on your back onrepparttar 116316 floor. After some practice, try lifting a fairly heavy object up in your hands as you breath, lowering it as you exhale.

6. Developing Additional Breathing Techniques There are only a few basic principles attached to producing good singing. The problem is that they all take considerable time and practise to develop to anything approaching perfection. Breathing is just one example, albeit a very important one.

Sometimes in actual singing one needs to get as much breath intorepparttar 116317 lungs as possible within a very short space of time, perhaps when there is a rest of only a quaver or eighth note. Sometimesrepparttar 116318 composer has left no rest at all but a breath has still to be taken somehow between one note andrepparttar 116319 next. In these cases it is important to be able to get as much air intorepparttar 116320 lungs as possible in order to get throughrepparttar 116321 next phrase that has to be sung.

To help with this, practice taking very quick intakes of air and then exhaling over increasing lengths of time.

Duringrepparttar 116322 early stages of breathing development it is useful to get some variation intorepparttar 116323 practice period. If you spend, say, fifteen minutes on breathing, followrepparttar 116324 general approach outlined above. After a year or two,breathe in forrepparttar 116325 usual count of ten so thatrepparttar 116326 lungs feel full. But then try continuing to breathe in for another ten. Then exhale inrepparttar 116327 usual way.

Later still, followrepparttar 116328 last paragraph, but afterrepparttar 116329 second count of ten try holdingrepparttar 116330 breath for another ten, and then exhale over at least a count of twenty but working up to thirty.

Inrepparttar 116331 early stages, breathing practice can seem a bit deadly. Try to get some variation into it. Perhaps most of all, make regular assessments on your progress. That will help more than anything to keeprepparttar 116332 motivation going.
