permanent file as designated by the maintenance officer. The activity placing the parachute assembly into service will initiate the Parachute Record. All required information is legibly recorded using a ball-point pen or typewriter. The type of parachute, part number, canopy seal number, date placed in service (month/year), aircraft bureau number (entered in pencil), and the activity's 3-M organization code will be entered at the top of the record. Under normal circumstances, AZ personnel will not make entries on this record. Entries required during inspection and technical directive compliance will be entered by the aircrew survival equipment (PR) personnel tending to the inspection or maintenance of the parachute. Complete details can be found in NA 13-1-6.2.
The Seat Survival Kit (SSK) Record is designed to provide configuration and inspection information for an SSK and its components throughout the service life of the equipment (fig. 6-12). It is a two-part, no-carbon-required form. The hardback copy is to be filed in the aircraft logbook. The original (flimsy) copy is maintained in a permanent file as designated by the maintenance officer. The following steps are used to maintain the form:
1. The hardback copy and copy one shall accompany the SSK anytime it is removed and sent to the supporting IMA for inspection and maintenance.
2. Section A is used to record information about the basic assembly, such as serial number, part number, etc.
3. Section B is used to record information on service life items such as nomenclature, part number, contract number, manufacture date, expiration date, and serial number, if applicable.
4. Section C is used to record the signatures of the individuals who performed and inspected oxygen systems tests.
