Virtually all AADs designed for skydiving have one parameter combination to define their activation. A certain height and a certain vertical speed make them activate. That has served the needs since the beginning of skydiving. Until Wing Suits appeared. They allow such slow vertical speed that the method of the last 90 years cannot deal with these conditions any more. A new solution was necessary. The use of Wing Suits requires not one, but two parameter combinations during the same jump. One is needed for the duration of the Wing Suit Flight and another one is needed for the duration of the Canopy Flight.
The WSC starts off by using the Wing Suit parameters, which covers specific Wing Suit flight risks. Once it detects the criteria of your canopy, it changes the Wing Suit parameters to the canopy parameters and informs you about the change.
The WSC (Wing Suit CYPRES)
MONITORS what you do
ADJUSTS its actions to your needs
COMMUNICATES with you
Aside from Wingsuiting, the WSC can also be used for all other disciplines too. Also, the handling is identical to all other civilian CYPRES models, except placing the Audio inside your helmet and listening to the melodic sound. Nevertheless, we ask everybody using this device to spend time to inform themselves about the physical circumstances of Wingsuit Flying and the technique behind the WSC.

CHANGEABLE-MODE CYPRES 2
For Multidiscipline Skydivers, Instructors, DZs and Skydiving Schools
The changeable MODE CYPRES 2 can be configured in the field to have the same activation parameters as the Sport models of CYPRES 2 (Expert, Student, Tandem or Speed).
The 4 in 1 solution providing more application possibilities than any other AAD.
This feature can be accomplished by a set series of control unit button pushes until the appropriate model can be selected. The setting procedures is specially designed to make unwanted changes impossible.
The current model / setting version is visually recognizable on the control unit display when the unit is on.
Company founder Helmut Cloth decided to replace the old and faulty technology for opening devices, which was on themarket at that time, with an absolutely reliable electronic device. The result was revolutionary: the first CYPRES was ready in 1991 and became the first electronic opening device in the skydiving world. Innovative research and expertise, and an extremely precise manufacturing process as well, made the CYPRES quickly the synonym for most reliable AADs worldwide.
Like no other device, the CYPRES has set new standards for safety and reliability ever since. It has become the indispensable part of skydiving equipment and a major factor in the skydiving world. AIRTEC has also become one of the most successful medium-sized companies in Germany, with a worldwide network of dealerships on every continent in the world.
