2-9. PMCS Procedures. The following describe PMCS procedures on the unit and intermediate levels.
a General. Table 2-1 lists preventive maintenance checks and services. The purpose of PMCS is to
assure that the 12 foot high-velocity parachute is operational .
b Frequency of Performing PMCS. PMCS will be performed before equipment is packed for use, during
modification and repair, and after use, or at any time deemed necessary by the air delivery equipment
c. PMCS Columnar Entries Table 2-1. Enter data In columns as follows:
(1) Item number. The item number column shall be used as a source of the item number required for
the "TM Number" column on DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet) when
recording the results of PMCS.
(2) Interval. This column identifies the required PMCS interval.
(3) Item to be inspected. Contains the common name of the item to be inspected.
(4) Procedures. Provides a brief description of the procedure by which the checks are to be performed .
d. Recording Defects. All defects discovered during the Inspection will be recorded using the applicable
specifics In DA Pamphlet 73&750, TB 750-126, and TB 43-0002-4.
e. Conservation of Resources. To conserve time and labor, and to avoid evacuation to an intermediate
maintenance activity, unit/detachment commanders may designate, in writing, rigger personnel to accomplish
classification inspection of average air delivery equipment.
f. Inspection Function Requirement. Normally, a technical/rigger-type inspection will be per- formed by air
delivery equipment maintenance personnel at a packing, rigging, or repair activity. The Inspection of initial
receipt items will be performed as a separate function from packing or rigging activity, the Item to be inspected
will be placed in proper layout on packing table or suitable sized floor area. Should defect or damage be
discovered at any point during the inspection, the inspection will be terminated and the applicable item will be
processed and forwarded to repair activity. The repair activity, in turn, will conduct a technical/rigger-type
inspection that will be performed by only those parachute rigger personnel cited in AR 750-32. Any defect
discovered during a unit level repair activity inspection which exceeds the capability of that activity will require
the affected Item to be evacuated to an Intermediate maintenance function for further determination of
economic repair and total repair accomplishment, if applicable.
