A routine inspection is a visual check performed to ascertain the serviceability of all visible components of a
parachute that is packed or rigged for use. The inspection will be made on all components that can be
inspected without opening the parachute pack. Prior to use, a parachute rigger will administer this inspection.
Parachutes issued for an airdrop operation, and not deployed, will receive a routine inspection prior to being
placed into a ready-for-issue storage.
A pack-in-process inspection is performed at specified intervals during the packing of a parachute to ensure
that only authorized procedures and methods are being used. A parachute rigger, other than the packer or
rigger preparing the applicable equipment for use, will accomplish the inspection. The intervals at which the
inspection is performed is as follows:
1. After the parachute is placed in proper layout.
2. After gores are folded and flatfold is completed.
3. After canopy is longfolded.
4. After canopy is stowed.
5. After suspension lines are stowed.
6. After closing the deployment bag.
7. After parachute is completely packed.
