TECHNICAL/RIGGER-TYPE INSPECTION PROCEDURES
Perform inspection as follows:
1. Overall inspection. An overall inspection will be made on the T-10C/T-10D parachute to ascertain the
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) 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, AFTO 391, and
NAVWPNCEN or NAVWPNS CL 13512/11 (Parachute History Record) 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.
