Parachute Log Record. The Army Parachute Log Record, DA From 3912 and AFTO 391, is a historical
maintenance document, which accompanies the parachute canopy and pack assemblies through out the
period of service of the individual assembly. The log record provides a means of recording maintenance
actions performed on a parachute canopy assembly. Normally, a log record is initiated an attached to a
pack upon receipt by a using unit. However, if the item is subjected to alteration or modification by a
maintenance activity during the interim period from date of manufacture to receipt by a using unit, the log
record will be prepared by the activity performing the maintenance function. Once initiated, a log record
will be attached to and contained in an affixed parachute log record/inspection date pocket until such time
as the parachute canopy assembly is destroyed or rendered unfit for further use or repair. Additionally,
should an item that requires a log record be transferred from one unit to another, the log record for the
parachute assembly will accompany the item in the transfer action. A prepared log record will not be
removed or separated from a parachute, and especially a packed parachute, except as directed by the
local air delivery equipment maintenance activity officer. A log record which is illegible, lost, damaged,
soiled, or precludes further entries due to lack of space will be replaced upon the next repack or
inspection, as applicable, with a serviceable item from stock.
