b. Airing. Where dampness and mildew are prevalent, air delivery equipment will be aired at frequent
intervals according to the seventy of the prevailing conditions. Parachutes that have been previously packed or
are unpacked, which have been subjected to conditions of dampness or mildew, will be aired for a period of at
least 6 hours prior to being repacked. Air delivery items may be aired either indoors or outdoors in dry weather.
However, fabric items will not be aired in direct sunlight. Airing may be accomplished by suspending or
elevating the applicable item(s) in a manner which would allow entire exposure to the circulation of air. Outside
facilities used for the shakeout of parachutes may be used for the airing of air delivery equipment if weather
conditions permit. If the shakeout facilities are inadequate for airing, the applicable Item(s) may be suspended
or elevated at several points or by draping over suitable type objects which would not cause damage.
