Technical/rigger-type inspection is a complete and thorough inspection of an individual airdrop item, including
associated parts and components. The following paragraphs outline criteria applicable to accomplishing a
technical/rigger-type inspection. The inspection will be performed by a qualified parachute rigger in
accordance with AR 750-32 (AF AFSCs 2T251/2A754/1A251 trained and certified by USAQMC&S
Fabrication of Aerial Delivery Loads Course).
1. Upon initial receipt of procured equipment to a using unit by a supply source.
2. Immediately before equipment is packed or rigged for use in airdrop operations.
3. Before and after repairs or modifications are made.
4. At any other time as deemed necessary by the airdrop equipment maintenance officer.
Inspection Function Requirement. Normally, a technical/rigger-type inspection will be performed at a
packing, rigging, or repair activity. The inspection of initial receipt items will be performed as a separate
function from packing or rigging operations.
When the inspection is conducted at a rigging activity, the item to be inspected will be placed in proper layout
on a packing table or a suitable sized floor area. Should a defect or damage be discovered at any point
during the inspection, the inspection will be terminated and the defective item will be processed and
forwarded to a repair activity. The repair activity, in turn, will conduct a technical/rigger-type inspection that
will be performed by only those parachute rigger personnel cited in AR 750-32.
Any defect discovered during a unit level repair activity that exceeds the capability of that activity will require
the affected item to be evacuated to a direct support maintenance facility determination of economic repair
and its application, if applicable.
