How would you address the following routine opening problems?

a. Before releasing the brakes, spread risers or twist risers to transfer line twist to risers, kick in opposite direction, watch altitude to 2,500 feet.
b. Pump rear risers or steering controls at the bottom of the stroke while watching altitude to 2,500 feet.
c. Pull toggles to flare position and hold (or pull down rear risers and hold) and watch altitude. If stubborn, determine controllability with turn and flare by 2,500 feet.
d. Determine controllability and ability to flare by 2,500 feet.
e. Be sure both brakes are released.
