For the induced speed landings, you'll want to pull down on both front risers a bit on final approach to increase your landing speed.  You should notice an increase in flare power when you do this.  Extended glide is what you get on an induced speed landing...  :D  Actually, they're probably talking about finding the maximum glide angle for your canopy, which could involve slight brakes or rear risers depending on winds, canopy type, and a number of other factors.



Shit! this sounds like a disclaimer for an insurance company,
I wish Franz and Paul R would stop fighting over me. I mean thier both Fugly!
