Pack-in-process inspection. A designated supervisory rigger, other than the packer, must perform a
pack-in-process inspection at seven intervals during the packing procedure. The inspection is performed
to ensure that the parachute is packed according to authorized packing procedures (refer to WP 0012
Throughout this manual, all directions (right, left, upper, lower, top, bottom, clockwise, and
counterclockwise) are given from the rigger's point of view, as the rigger stands at the tension plate end
of the packing table, facing the apex-hook end of the table. All directions are indicated as the parachute is
in proper layout.
1. Top. That portion of the equipment that is farthest from the packing table surface.
2. Bottom. That portion of the equipment that is nearest to the packing table surface.
