Apache: Inspect Seat Belt and Harness for Correct Configuration

Mechanics, make a note that if you’re working on the Apache Longbow, you need to check the seat belt and harness configuration like it says in maintenance information message (MIM) H-64-22-MIM-02 (16 May 22), which updates H-64-13-AMAM-06 (5 Jun 13).

H-64-13-AMAM-06 required a one-time inspection to identify and replace incompatible aircrew seat restraint components and installation of the approved seat restraint configuration. Since H-64-13-AMAM-06 was released, the approved seat belt and shoulder harness configuration has been further refined and is detailed in TM 1-1520-LONGBOW/APACHE (Mar 22) and several component provisioning issues have been recently solved.

For all the message details to configure your Apache seat belt and shoulder harness correctly, go to the AMCOM safety and maintenance messages website HERE (you'll need your CAC) to search for and download a copy.
