92R Parachute Rigger

As a Parachute Rigger, you will be responsible for the safety of the men, women, and equipment entrusted to the parachutes you pack. This requires an incredible attention to detail as chutes of varying sizes must be precisely packed and maintained. In addition to packing chutes, you will take responsibility for maintaining the materials of the chute as well. This includes patching, sewing, and storage of the chutes, packs, and web gear.
Of course, the ultimate test of your skills comes when you make a jump in a chute you packed yourself. Don't worry. Your training, which includes airborne jump training, will prepare you for this. It will also prepare you for a civilian career with parachute rigging and supply companies, commercial parachuting schools, some government agencies, and survival equipment manufacturing firms.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
