Longfolding the Canopy.
Grasp the lower lateral band with left hand and canopy with right hand. Fold edges toward canopy center to the
radial seam. Place first packing weight on lower lateral band.
Continue folding right group in same manner until you reach the annular ring. Place second packing weight here.
Continue folding until you reach approximately 48 inches from top apex and place third packing weight here.
Fold the left gore group in a similar manner adjusting packing weights to hold both groups of gores (figure 2-23).
Long fold is now complete.
Preparing to Stow suspension Lines.
Position the parachute pack on the table adjacent to the area at which the suspension lines are attached to the
risers. Roll the pack sides down to aid the stowage of the suspension lines.
To secure the suspension line stows, install rubber retainer bands, as required, at equal intervals along the left
and right suspension line retaining straps on the inside bottom of the pack.
Release tension from the canopy and position the risers, spreader bar, and the suspension lines on the lower
edge of the pack bottom (figure 2-24).
Stowing Suspension Lines.
Form and secure the first suspension line stow at the lower right corner of the pack.
While holding the first stow in position on the pack, rotate the pack one-quarter turn counterclockwise, place one
riser in each pocket.
Form and secure the second suspension line stow at the lower left corner of the pack, making the stows the
same width as the inside bottom of the pack (figure 2-25).
Continue stowing suspension lines alternately from right to left until the lines are stowed within 12 to 14 inches of
the canopy skirt. Remove risers from pockets and rotate the pack one-quarter turn clockwise. Reposition the
spreader bar (figure 2-26).
