Company founder Helmut Cloth decided to replace the old and faulty technology for opening devices, which was on the market 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.
