So, no student jumping there?

I live in Orange County so this is excellent news!

...but Perris is still home until I get my C license.

Thanks for all the work you did to make it come together, can't wait to jump there!

This was a pretty heated battle to access the airport. There was a serious concern about wingsuits due to the high volume of VFR traffic in the area. The largest Marine base in the US is 2 miles to the north, a heavily traveled VFR route along the beach is 2 miles to the west, a major airport is 6 miles to the south...we are skydiving in the center of a city. Also, I have to fill in an "incident report" any time a skydiver lands out of our 15 acre landing area. The city can terminate my permit if we have too many "incidents".
After many meetings we conceeded to no wing suits and C and D experienced skydivers only.
Once we ease into this and show the city we can operate safely we can start renegotiating the operating permit.

C and D license requirement sounds like a good middle ground to start. Did the subject of wingloading restrictions come up?

NopeSmile

A lot of other BS was brought up, such as the Lodi grannycam jump right before the permit was grantedTongue

Some of us needs to do 270, 450, 630 or bigger turn in order to cut thru the ocean breeze and land safely, or our small x-brace canopy will get blown away with the wind.

Is that cool or not cool??

Sweet. Looking to be at JT's memorial at 'Snore but will be there the following week.

Can't wait.

Are the hours of operation pretty set? Thursday thru Sunday? Grimmie, any hop-n-pops that allow jumpers to open below your 5000 limit?
