Section IV. UNIT PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
To ensure that all components of the Personnel Insertion/Extraction System are ready for use at all times, they must be
inspected at prescribed intervals to determine their serviceability. The two types of inspections normally performed are
Routine and Technical/Rigger which are defined in paragraph 3-11. All defects discovered during inspection will be
recorded on forms in accordance with DA PAM 738-750 and DA PAM 738-751 at the earliest possible opportunity. If
during an inspection any component, except the deployment bag, is found to be defective or the serviceability of the item
is doubtful, the component concerned shall be replaced.
3-11. Unit Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services Procedures.
This paragraph contains a tabulated listing (table 3-1) of preventive maintenance checks and services which
will be performed by qualified rigger personnel (MOS 43E) at indicated intervals.
Routine Inspection. The routine type inspection will be performed by the user before and after use (table 3-1).
Technical/Rigger Type Inspection. The technical/rigger type inspection will be performed by a qualified rigger
