Anyone jump San Diego Can't Post

Hey guys,

Staying in the US and looking for a DZ with a decent amount of loads mid week and a good atmosphere. San Diego is reasonable distance, anyone know what its like on weekdays?

Thanks

I jump there almost exclusively during the week, and there is usually plenty of action. A mix of Tandems and up-jumpers usually keep the Caravan flying, and it is not uncommon for the Otter to be in use.

Give them a call before going over there to be sure.

I drive down from the Los Angeles area and there have been very few times in the last decade that the aircraft were idle. There are of course two very busy DZs to the North of San Diego... Elsinore & Perris...

Regards,

FYIU, an AAD is required @ SD if you have 1000 jumps or less.

Ah I'm gettin' old and senile, ...there is also Tsunami Skydivers at Oceanside (for "B" License jumpers and above). They are Thur - Sun operation only.

SDSD is a way cool place. I showed up there all the way from Baltimore a few years ago and they went WAY out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed and I had a good time. People even tok me for dinner after hours. I only regret that I haven't been back.Unsure

If San Diego is reasonable, perhaps perris is? They frequently do 12-18 loads mid week.
