120th day? Can't Post

Ok so when you get a repack is that day 1 or day 0? Also is your reserve good on day 120 and at midnight turns into a pumpkin? or is your reserve out of date as of midnight on the 119th day?
Just for example say my reserve was packed on May 28th of this year(05/28/04).. is it done today(09/24/04)? or tommorow? or sunday?

Far 105: "Within 120 days before the date of its use"

Its good for 120 days. Pumpkin at midnight.

It is good through the 120th day, but many DZ's will argue the point.

There is no 0 day.

Whatever date is on the reserve card is day 1. There is no time stamp so it doesn't matter what time of day it was packed, etc etc.

Day 120 is the last day the reserve is in date. Day 121 is out of date and the reserve must be inspected and repacked before jumping.

I know that it needs a repack, and if I'd been thinking I'd have had it take care of during the week, however I've been a little busy and am trying to be sure it will be jumpable saturday if I cant get it repacked before then, so yea I'm looking for the most I can stretch 120days and still not break any rules

Like Samurai said. Day one, is the day it was packed. the 120th. day later, at midnight, it's due again. There are no '0' days or plus - minus days. I put a small sticker on the reserve handle for the convenience of my customer, showing the due date. . Hope this helps.

At the stroke of midnight on the 25th of Sept. your rig will no longer meet the requirements of FAA Part 105.43.Crazy That is unless you get it repacked before then.Tongue
