2. Pack-In-Process Inspection. A designated supervisory parachute rigger, other than the packer, must
perform a pack-in process inspection at six intervals during the packing procedure. The inspection is
performed to ensure the parachute is packed according to authorized packing procedures (refer to WP
0009 00, INSPECTION).
Throughout this manual, all directions (right, left, upper, lower, top, bottom, clockwise, and counterclockwise)
are given from the riggers point of view, as the rigger stands looking from the parachute riser (tension device)
toward the canopy vent (stationary post) at the tension plate end of the packing table facing the apex-hook
end of the table.
1. Top. That portion of the equipment that is farthest from the packing surface.
2. Bottom. That portion of the equipment that is nearest to the packing surface.
