Performer Self-Help: Getting the Most from Man and Machine

Tuesday, December 7th 2021 2:45 pm - 3:30 pm

Champagne 3-4

Performers spend countless hours trying to find ways to get just an extra knot or two out of their aircraft, to be able to push the plane a little further, to be able to come around a corner just a little tighter. What is most often neglected in these efforts is developing the body and mind controlling the plane. This session will focus on specific steps — from diet and fitness to emergency preparedness — performers can take to enhance and improve their mind and bodies outside of the cockpit that can yield greater results than getting a couple extra knots.
