What Is DA Form 7382?

The DA Form 7382, Sling Load Inspection Record is a form issued by the Department of the Army (DA) and used for documenting and inspecting all procedures related to sling load operations.

The sling load inspection form is a part of the new scheme developed by the DA in order to improve sling load safety.

All the army equipment moved by a sling load before the arrival of the supporting aircraft should be checked by the qualified inspector using the DA Form 7382.

How to Use DA Form 7382 During Sling Load Operations?

The whole procedure can be divided into three phases:

  • The first phase includes the preparation and rigging of the loads in accordance with the corresponding sling load manual.
  • The second phase is an inspection of the load by a Pathfinder school Graduate, SLICC Graduate or an Air Assault School Graduate in the rank of E-4 or higher. All loads are inspected twice with the results of the inspection recorded in the DA Form 7382. The person who rigged the load is not allowed to check the same load.
  • During the third phase, trained ground crews hook up rigged and inspected loads.

When filing the DA Form 7382 digitally, all places where you can type or choose an option from a drop-down menu will be highlighted.

  2. Next goes the list of items you need to check. Here you must initial the items applicable to your specific load only and insert your remarks at the end of the section. This section is divided into three columns: one with the list of items, the second for the person who rigged the load, and the third for the inspector.
  3. The next section is intended for personal information about the individuals who rigged the load: their unit, name, initials, rank, signature, and date of the operation.
  4. The last section is for providing the same identifying information about the person inspecting the load.
