Upper and middle control line assembly will be replaced as
an entire assembly if any one of the upper and middle control
lines in the control line assembly is damaged. Failure to
follow these replacement procedures may have adverse
effects to the performance of the main canopy and may result
in a malfunction of the parachute and severe injury or death
Procedures in this work package will be used to replace the left or right forward control
line assembly. The left and right forward control line assemblies are mirror images of
each other. Both sides are installed in the same manner described in this work package.
Replace a damaged control line assembly as follows:
1. Place the canopy in proper layout.
2. Invert canopy between lines 1 and 28.
3. Straighten the control line assembly ensuring that it is free and clear from all attaching points in the
canopy to the junction with the lower (red) control line and down to the control toggle. Ensure that
there are no twists, entanglements or knots.
4. Align the new control line assembly on top of the damaged control line assembly and pin the new
control line assembly next to the attaching points as this will assist in re-attaching the new control line
assembly. Reference the control line assembly diagrams in this work package (figure 1) to ensure
the control line assembly has been correctly routed and attached to the canopy.
