Unlike traditional round canopy systems, the Wingman with square parachute technology provides the safe and most comfortable pilot emergency solution. With the ability to steer and safely land your parachute, pilots can “fly” rather than “drop” from danger.
It has a very low rate of descent in comparison to round parachutes – even when fully loaded. The parachute is in 50% brake and forward speed configuration after opening. In this configuration you can change direction away from obstacles with the risers and the parachute will land you safely .
If you release the brakes lines actively and by intention, you increase forward speed and rate of descent. Holding on to the brake lines by the toggles you use them to change direction and pull them down to shoulder level to flare for landing.
Look at the YouTube video to see a “passive” landing without using the brake lines:
