How Army riggers pack 75,000 parachutes a year at Airborne School

Consistently, around 15,000 understudies perform five leaps from a live airplane before moving on from the United States Army’s Airborne School, each relying upon a parachute to get them securely to the ground. Each T-11 parachute is exclusively stuffed and reviewed by a group of riggers, who all in all get ready around 75,000 chutes every year. The insider went through a day with the riggers of the First Battalion-507th Parachute Infantry Regiment inside the pressing shed at Lawson Army Airfield in Fort Benning to discover the stuff to pack drops for future paratroopers in Airborne School.
