1

What are the advantages of static line?

1. less complex than MFF
2. short time for initial training with a zero student failure rate
3. can airdrop a large number of personnel and cargo at low altitude with ac uracy

2

what are the disadvantages of static line?

1. lower altitude drops can possibly put aircraft and jumpers at risk
2. non-transferable canopy

3

how many personnel are required to support static line operations?

a minimum of five:
1. jump master
2. assistant jump master
3. drop zone safety officer
4. Malfunction Officer
5.medical support personnel

4

can the DZSO serve as the MO?

yes, if they are qualified as a DZSO and MO and only during day jumps

5

When are additional jump master required for static line and MFF jumps?

when there are more than 32 jumpers total, or 10 jumpers exiting from 2 doors

6

the MC-6

7

how much does the MC-6 parachute weigh?

42 pounds

8

How much weight can the MC-6 parachute support?

400 lbs

9

what reserve parachute is used with the MC-6?

T-11R

10

How much does the T-11R weigh?

14.8 lbs

11

what is the diameter of the T-11R?

29 feet

12

For static line jumps using the MC-6 and T-11R parachutes, what is the total combined suspended weight?

400 lbs

13

how much must the total combined suspended weight of the MC-6 and T-11R parachutes be reduced for every 1000ft above sea level?

5 lbs

14

For static line jumps, when may the jump master use a MFF parachute?

When they are qualified to jump that parachute, and when the jump altitude is 1500 ft or more above ground d level

15

When is a personal floatation device required for static line drops?

when the drop zone is within 1000 meters of a body of water.

a body of water is defined as water 4 ft or deeper, and 40 ft long or longer.

16

How is a body of water defined for static line jumps?

a body of water is water that is 4 ft or more deep, and 40 ft long or longer

17

What is the required diameter for steel anchor line cables for static line operations?

1/4 or 3/8 inch

18

What is the maximum altitude a static line jumps can be conducted at?

2,999 ft above ground level

19

What is the maximum drop speed for static line operations?

150 KIAS (KNOT INDOCATED AIR SPEED)

20

what is the recommended jump height for static line proficiency or refresher training jumps?

1250 ft above ground level, provided air speed is greater than 90 kias

21

What is the ideal static line drop speed?

130-135 Kias for fixed wing, 90-110 Kias for rotary wing

22

At what speed will there be an increased risk of damage to equipment and personnel when static line jumping the MC-6 parachute?

150 kias

23

true or false: the injury rate for jumps at 5000 feet above MSL are 4 times higher than jumps at sea level

true

24

What are the 3 basic drop zone markings?

H, T, and inverted L

25

In static line drops, what does red smoke indicate?

no drop

26

in static line drops, what does red smoke with the left half of a T indicate?

medevac

27

What are the three ways a "T" at a drop zone can be configured, and what do they mean?

T= good to drop
I = abort the pass
L= Medevac (used with red smoke or chemlighgs)

28

When must the jump brief be given?

within 24 hours of the jump

29

For combat static line drops, what are the speeds and altitudes a drop can be conducted from?

can drop from 600 feet above ground level with the MC-6 from a rotary wing platform flying less than 90 kts; can drop from 475 feet agl with the mc-6 from a fixed wing aircraft if flying between 125-150 kias

30

What are the two MFF methods?

High Altitude High Opening (HAHO)
High Altitude Low Opening (HALO)
