Parachute PackinG anD DePloyMent loG1.1.

as any conventional ram-air reserve is repeatedly handled and repacked, the fabric permeability will 1.1.1. increase. This increased permeability will affect opening, flight and/or landing characteristics. To monitor this important issue, we have incorporated a tracking and inspection program into our reserve canopies. Compli-ance with this program is mandatory. each time the reserve is inspected and packed, a single diagonal line / is to be placed in the next open box on the label. in the event of an actual deployment, an X is to be placed in the next available box. The warning label should accurately reflect the repacks and uses on that reserve parachute. In the event a rigger encounters a discrepancy between the packing data card and the warning label, the label should be brought into compliance. the owner of the reserve should be informed that the rigger is simply complying with Performance Designs requirement for the label to accurately reflect the repacks and/or uses on that parachute. after 40 repacks or 25 deployments have been reached, the reserve must have its permeability tested. (in most countries, 40 repacks are usually performed over a 10- to 20-year period.) the testing is performed to ensure that the fabric permeability has not reached a point where the openings and landing performance would be unacceptable. Subsequent to passing this testing, an additional label is affixed and the parachute is then returned into service. The label will contain additional boxes, the specific number being chosen ac-cording to the results of the test.
