Section III. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
4-7. ORGANIZATIONAL PMCS
a. Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS), Table 4-1, are to be done to be sure the helmet
is ready for use at all times. These checks and services help you find and fix defects before the helmet
is damaged or fails.
b. Item numbers in the first column on Table 4-1 are the order in which things are to be done. Column two
"Interval" lists when to do them.
c. If minor defects are found when the helmet is in use, take notes on what they are. Fix them, or have
them fixed after you have stopped using the helmet.
d. Record all defects and steps taken to fix them on DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspection and
Maintenance Work Sheet) as soon as possible.
Always keep in mind the WARNINGS located on the inside
front cover. Perform BEFORE (B) PMCS.
After 120 day inspection all AH-1 pilots and gunners will
reconfirm bore sight accuracy with armament personnel.
