RIGGERS 19th Jun 97
Ref. BPA form 169, item 5.7, Packing lessons and practice.
NOTES: This is the end of the trail as the method of Pro Packing reserves can be included in the examiners lesson plans and as advanced packers are allowed to pack according to the training given during the course, all advanced packers are allowed to Pro Pack reserves even when the manufacturer has not included this method in the manuals.
It should also be noted that the reason some of the manuals do not include Pro Packing reserves is that it is a costly business re-writing the manuals every time they change their system, even if they Pro Pack in the factory and verbally tell riggers that pro packing is best.
It is important to note that Tandem equipment is not taught on the advanced packers course and the above (Pro Packing) does not apply to Tandem equipment.
