fabric, seams, reinforcement, and hardware.
Check fabric, seams, webbing and reinforcement
for holes, cuts, tears, fraying, contamination, and
deterioration. Examine hardware for corrosion,
bends, dents, nicks, sharp edges, proper function,
and security of attachment. Make sure that you
keep a record of any damage for later repairs.
Repair holes, tears, snags, or rips in container
fabric using approved procedures as described in
Some parachute containers use rubber retain-
ing bands to secure the suspension lines. On most
assemblies these rubber bands must be replaced
at each repack regardless of their condition.
COMPLIANCE WITH CURRENT
On parachute repack cycles, or when
otherwise directed, inspect the parachute
assembly and components for updating ac-
cording to the latest modifications. For each
type of parachute, refer to the Emergency
Personnel and Drogue Parachute Systems
Manual, NAVAIR 13-1-6.2, and recent Air-
crew System bulletins and changes for all
current parachute configurations. Do not permit
any local modifications without prior approval
by proper authority.
