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.
