I am interested of emergency procedures with two canopies out for students categories A,B or C. They didn't learn the steearing by rear risers yet.
What will be safer, for example, with side-by-side canopies?
Leave the brakes stowed and steer by pulling on the rear risers or release the brakes and steer with the toggles?
The student may be in panic and make mistakes.
There was a bad situation with a student recently. The main was 270 sq.ft, the reserve was 255 sq.ft. The student made a mistake, release toggles on the reserve and after stable side-by-side became downplane.
I think so way: teach the students leave the brakes stowed and steer with rear risers when they have biplane or side-by-side canopies. But if the toggles were unstowed earlier then two canopies out, then steer with the toggles.
