LAYOUT AND LINE CHECK
Perform layout and line check as follows:
1. Lay out parachute on a clean dry surface with canopy on its left side. Leading edge (nose) will be to
the right when viewed from riser end. Stretch lines full length with a helper at riser end to check
continuity and hold lines taut.
2. Grasp high points of each cell and, with high points in the left hand, flip canopy toward trailing edge.
Canopy shall lie flat with trailing edge lines on left side when viewed from riser end.
3. Remove any twists, turns, and tangles between suspension line groups.
4. Raise lines 8A and 8B and walk them down (ensuring there are no twists) to see if line 8A runs free
from canopy to outside of right front riser connector link. Line 1A should run free to outside of left
front riser connector link.
