3. Continue folding right group in the same manner until you reach the halfway up the canopy. Place the
second packing weight (figure 38, item 1). Continue folding until you reach approximately 48 inches
from the apex. Then place a third packing weight (figure 38, item 2).

4. Fold the left group of the anti-inversion net (figure 39, item 1) and lower lateral band over the right
groups of gores (figure 39, item 2). Replace packing weight.
5. Fold left group of gores (figure 39, item 3) in a similar manner, adjusting packing weights to hold
both groups of gores.
After long folding, ensure there is no rollback. The parachute should be approximately 10
inches wide at the skirt (lower lateral band) and 6 inches wide where the fold breaks near
6. Long-folding is completed.
