assemblies or equipment (such as ejection seats
and in-flight refueling stores), an entry or entries
is/are made in the Installed Explosive Safety
Devices form of the appropriate AESR. When
explosive devices are installed in personnel
parachutes, an entry is made on the parachute
record. Explosive devices installed in other safety
and survival equipment are made on the history
cardaircrew systems record. The installation of
all other explosive safety devices is recorded on
the Installed Explosive Safety Devices form of the
The possibility of transferring certain
equipments from one aircraft to another during
inspections, rework, periods of periodic
maintenance, etc., emphasizes the necessity for
careful and periodic checking of this record
regarding the status of the explosive devices
currently installed in the aircraft.

associated igniters and fuses are not intended for
inclusion in this record. However, information
concerning certain cartridges or devices used to
expel stores may be entered in this section if
specifically directed for a particular application.
