CYPRES 2 - Student
AAD for Student canopy
AAD for Student canopy
Tested Reliability and Performance!
Resulting from the experiment of Airtec with Cypres 1, CYPRES 2 guarantees effectiveness and reliability to you. What one waits precisely and without exception of its safety appliance !
The STUDENT CYPRES 2 can be recognized by the yellow button with the imprint "Student"on the control unit.
It will activate the release unit when the rate of descent exceeds 29 mph (13 meters per second). The activation altitude is split. In the case of rate of descent being equal to that of freefall, the opening altitude is at approx. 750 feet (the same as with Expert CYPRES). However, should the rate of descent be lower than that of freefall but still above the limit of 29 mph (e.g. with partially opened canopy, or after a cutaway), then Student CYPRES activates the release unit when the altitude falls below approx. 1000 feet (approx. 300 meters) above ground level. The student will then have more time to prepare for landing. Like the Expert CYPRES, the Student CYPRES ceases operation below approx. 130 feet AGL.
Unlike the Expert and Tandem CYPRES models, we recommend that the Student CYPRES be switched off in the aircraft prior to descent if the jump is aborted and the student will land with the plane, because the vertical speed of a descending jump plane will exceed the activation speed of Student CYPRES.
Be aware that it is possible to exceed a vertical speed of 29 mph (13 meters per second) under a fully inflated canopy !
If a jump plane is descending with students still on board, switch the Student CYPRES off before reaching 1500 ft (450 meters) above ground.
If this is not possible, the descent rate of the plane must not exceed 1500 ft/min below 1500 feet above ground. Close open doors.
