CYPRES 2 with specific parameters for Student Operations

More safety under your parachute, more time to prepare for landing.

The Student CYPRES 2 is an opening device that has been developed specifically for students.

The activation altitude is higher compared to the Expert CYPRES 2 and is set for 1000 feet /300 meters. This gives you adequate time to handle any emergency situation safely, such as a partially-opened main parachute.

In such a case, you have this extra time to prepare for the landing.

Identification of the Student CYPRES 2 is the yellow button with the student label.

* These temperature limits do not mean the outside (ambient) temperatures but rather temperatures
inside the processing unit. Therefore, these limits won‘t have any meaning until the processing unit
itself has reached the temperatures in question. In actual fact, these limits will rarely be reached due
to the mandatory location of the CYPRES in the reserve container, and the insulating properties of
the processing unit pouch and parachute canopies.

** If required maintenance has been performed.

*** Anticipated, according to the present knowledge base
