2-5. Receipt of Used Parachute. Upon initial receipt of used parachute proceed as follows:
Follow procedures given in paragraph 2-4a, and check each component for excessive wear and tear.
If defects or damages are discovered, process the parachute for maintenance at the maintenance level assigned
by the Maintenance Allocation Chart (Appendix B).
2-6. After-Use Receipt. When a parachute is received at the maintenance activity following its use during airdrop, it
must be given a shakeout and aired (para 2-11), and if necessary, cleaned (para 2-12) before it can be returned to
service. If a parachute is issued but is not used, it does not need to be given a shakeout; however, it must be aired if it
has been subjected to conditions of dampness.
