After an uneventful sitfly dive the jumper appeared to deploy the reserve extremely low. The Reserve was found still in the freebag near the jumper.

The jumper was seen to break off with out any issues and was seen going for her pilot chute. Later testing on the ground found no issues in pulling the main PC.

The jumper had turned their AAD (Cypres) on at sea level then drove to a DZ much higher to jump. The AAD was not recalabrated to the new elevation before jumping.
