TECHNICAL/RIGGER-TYPE INSPECTION PROCEDURES
Perform inspection as follows:
1. Overall inspection. An overall inspection will be made on the MC1-1C/MC1-1D parachute to ascertain
a. Log record/parachute inspection data pocket and form. As applicable, inspect the assembly log
record parachute inspection data pocket to ensure the Army Parachute Log Record (DA Form
3912), NAVWPNCEN or NAVWPNS CL 13512/11(Parachute History Record) is enclosed and
properly attached. Further, remove the log record from the pocket and evaluate the recorded
entries. Inspect and evaluate as follows:
The Army Parachute Log Record, DA Form 3912, and AFTO 391 are history-
type maintenance documents that accompany the parachute canopy and
pack tray assemblies through the period of service of the individual assembly.
The log record provides a means of recording maintenance actions
performed on a parachute canopy assembly. Normally, a log record is
initiated and attached to a right rear riser upon receipt by a using unit.
However, if the item is subjected to alteration or modification by a
maintenance activity during the interim period from date of manufacture to
receipt by a using unit, the log record will be prepared by the activity
performing the maintenance function. Once initiated, a log record will be
attached to, and contained in, an affixed parachute log record/ inspection
data pocket, until such time as the parachute canopy assembly is destroyed
or rendered unfit for further use or repair. Additionally, should an item that
requires a log record, be transferred from one unit to another, the log record
for the parachute assembly will accompany the item in the transfer action. A
prepared log record will not be removed or separated from a parachute, and
especially a packed parachute, except as directed by the local air delivery
equipment maintenance activity officer. A log record that is illegible, lost,
damaged, soiled, or precludes further entries due to lack of space, will be
replaced upon the next repack or inspection, as applicable, with a serviceable
item from stock.
b. Assembly completeness. Ensure the applicable assembly is complete and that no components
(or parts) are missing.
c. Operation adequacy. Check the item components and parts to ensure proper assembly, which
includes attachment and alignment, and that the assembled product functions in the prescribed
manner. Further, ensure that no stitch formation (or sewn seam) has been omitted.
