RECEIPT OF USED PARACHUTE
Upon initial receipt of used parachute, proceed as follows:
1. Follow procedures given in the General Procedures for Air Delivery Equipment paragraph, above,
and check each component for excessive wear and tear.
2. If defects or damages are discovered, process the parachute for maintenance at the maintenance
level assigned by the MAC, WP 0039 00.
When a parachute is received at the maintenance activity, following its use by the parachutist during air
delivery, it must be given a shakeout and aired (WP 0007 00), and if necessary, cleaned (WP 0008 00)
before it can be returned to service. If a parachute is issued but is not used, it does not need to be
given a shakeout; however, it must be given a routine inspection by a qualified parachute rigger.
