FOLDING THE GORES
After the parachute has been properly laid out, proceed as follows:
1. Move to the apex end of the table. Grasp the upper lateral band on both sides, with your fingers
through the apex vent lines. Apply pressure toward the tension end of the table, until the upper lateral
band is aligned.
2. Move to the lower end of the table and apply first tension on the parachute until the suspension lines
are taut and rise off the table.
3. Move to the lower lateral band of the canopy, with the right group of lines in the left hand. Lift the right
group of suspension lines, with the left hand at the anti-inversion net. Hold top center anti-inversion
net in position, with the right hand, and flip the right group of gores over the left group.
