Airing. Where dampness and mildew are prevalent, air delivery equipment will be aired at frequent intervals
according to the severity of the prevailing conditions. Parachutes that have been previously packed or are unpacked, which
have been subjected to conditions of dampness or mildew, will be aired for a period of at least 6 hours prior to being repacked .
Air delivery items may be aired either indoors or outdoors in dry weather. However, fabric items will not be aired in direct
sunlight. Airing may be accomplished by suspending or elevating the applicable item(s) in a manner which would allow entire
exposure to the circulation of air. Outside facilities used for the shakeout of parachutes may be used for the airing of air
delivery equipment i weather conditions permit. If the shakeout facilities are inadequate for airing, the applicable item(s) m ay
be suspended or elevated at several points or by draping over suitable type objects which would not cause damage.
