Failure to detect areas of damage may result in malfunction of the parachute and
injury or loss of life to personnel.
a. Inspection. If defects or damages are discovered during inspection of a parachute, the parachute
must be rigger-rolled and processed for maintenance in accordance with paragraph 2-13e and DA PAM 738-
751. A rigger type inspection and a pack-in-process inspection must be performed in conjunction with each
packing of a parachute (refer to paragraph 2-13).
(1) Modified/rigger-type inspection. During packing of each parachute, it must be given a rigger-type
inspection by the packers in accordance with paragraph 2-13(2).
(2) Pack-in-process inspection. A pack-in-process inspection must be performed by a designated
supervisory rigger, other than the packers, at seven intervals during the packing procedure. The inspection is
performed to ensure that the parachute is packed according to authorized packing procedures. (Refer to
b. Orientation. Throughout this manual, all directions (right, left, upper, lower, top, bottom, clockwise,
and counterclockwise) are given from the rigger's point of view, as the rigger stands looking from the parachute
riser (tension device) toward the canopy vent (stationary post). See figure 2-8.
