I've seen people shooting accuracy sinking in on final approach with half brakes, and not coming back to full glide before landing. I know that's a nice, slow way to approach for accuracy, but on my student training, I was always told to be at full glide for the last hundred feet or so, to have enough speed for a full flare. So what's the correct way to sink in? I'd hate to find myself in a tight off-DZ landing(though there's not much around my home DZ except for miles of corn, but still) and accidentally collapse my canopy when I want to flare, or something like that. Although I guess I just answered part of my own question, get to know the way my canopy reacts at different speeds and inputs... but is there a "correct" procedure for this type of approach?
I fly a Triathlon loaded at just a tad over 1:1, by the way.
