Airect CYPRES 2 Automatic Activation Device.

Available for a limited time with the optional Limited Edition 25th Anniverary Golden Display! Select this option above to celebrate Airtec's 25 Years of the CYPRES AAD with a 24K Gold-Plated Stainless Steel Display!

Airtec's CYPRES 2 unit is today’s industry standard for AADs. CYPRES units have been commercially available the longest of the three major sport skydiving AAD products.

Now available in the Changeable Mode configuration, which allows the user to change the mode as needed throughout the unit's lifetime! This is excellent for the jumper who needs the Expert mode now, but may want the Speed more later on; or for the drop zone who may need to switch the CYPRES unit between a tandem, student or rental rig through the units lifetime. This is an extra cost option above the price of the 4 set mode CYPRES units.

Each new CYPRES 2 now includes a log book and pullup cord!

CYPRES 2 units have a lifetime of 12.5 years with an unlimited manufacturer guarantee for repairs, if needed. The units are water resistant for a duration of 24 hours at a maximum of 1.5 meters deep. The CYPRES 2 also has a jump counter and does not require a battery change.

As of January 1, 2016, CYPRES 2 are no longer required to undergo 4-year and 8-year maintenance checks, but the company says it is still "highly recommended." Units manufactured prior to January 1, 2016, retain the mandatory maintenance schedule. For more information on the CYPRES 2 maintenance, read this information form. For the CYPRES 2 maintenance, the units must be shipped to SSK Industries in Ohio or Airtec in Germay, and are tested/updated for a minimum of two weeks for $160 plus shipping costs.

The CYPRES 2 unit is now available in five different modes! The Changeable mode can be changed by the user, but the unit with set modes (Speed, Expert, Student and Tandem) can not be changed by the user. The set mode units can be changed at the factory at any time free of charge. 

Riggers can replace the CYPRES 2 cutter as well as the water filter on the units. An $65 credit is available by trading-in an expired original CYPRES. Note: To receive the $65 credit with ChutingStar, send in your expired CYPRES unit including the unused cutter with a copy of your receipt after purchasing a new CYPRES 2 from ChutingStar. Once we receive your expired unit, the $65 will be refunded to you.

In-Stock CYPRES 2 units at ChutingStar always have a recent date of manufacture as we get new shipments on a monthly basis direct from Airtec in Germany.

CYPRES is an acronym for CYbernetic Parachute RElease System.

Technology inside your rig.
This is one of those few things in life that you want to buy new, but you never want to use it. But you also know that when you need it, is there and it works. It has saved lives, and that's what its meant for. Why not have a technologically advanced computer on your rig in case you need it?

Made in Germany
It's great to know it's there, especially when flying in bigger flocks.

Solid investment and steadfast reliability
Few companies in our sport have been able to compare the level of ingenuity and technological brilliance as displayed by Airtec in their production of AADs. Even few companies have assumed more of a crucial task of saving lives, at the most inopportune times as Airtec. The ease of use, end user flexibility and assurance that the Cypres 2 lends in the event one is ever unlucky enough to need it. I can't say enough about their customer service as well. Years ago, I had a rig stolen and recovered from a golf course ditch after 10 months of sitting in the hot, wet Florida Summer. Airtec replaced the unit with the only cost to me being the 4 year service. As a father who participates in this wonderful sport, I would not trust my daughter's future to any other device.
