reserve inspection Can't Post

I'm looking for a reserve/gear inspection checklist. I heard there were some on the internet but I can't find any.

I have one in the Parachute Manual Vol II, but I was looking to see if any body ahd any more detailed ones or efficient ones.

I haven't seen one online; I made up my own based on the one in the Parachute Manual. I listed all of the areas to be checked in the order I check them, included the harness/container inspection and also included a tool list (as an extra reminder to count tools when the job is done!).

On a related subject, I heard rumors that they were going to change the repack interval to 180 days, instead of 120 days. Does anyone know if, or when, this will go into effect?

It's already in effect, and has been for almost a year I think. Oh ya, you're not in Canada are you...

Hi there,

THis might not be exactly what you're looking for, but try the following:

http://www.bpa.org.uk/code/forms.cfm

and select: F112A Tandem Inspection Check List.

Hope this helps,

Mike D10270.

Yea, yea, yea.. Don't rub it in.. Hell, the FAA takes years to do anything here.. I think it will be at least 2 more years before there is even a CHANCE of a 180 day repack cycle.. Well, that's assuming that the FAA started working on it a year ago.. Wink

The FAA rejected the 180 day re-pack cycle and will not approve of it any time soon. :(

A recent owners manual for any rig from Rigging Innovations might have what you are looking for.

Sigh, I guess we get to wait for a few years longer...
