One of the best DZs out there.

Skydive Perris Rated 5 by: Bye_gravity on 2017-09-25

Pros: Friendly staff, skyvans, and a freaking windtunnel
Cons: You don't want to leave.

Perris is definitely my favourite DZ. They have a huge fleet of aircrafts that would keep you busy from 7 in the morning until the last sunset load.

The on-site tunnel also offers a convenient choice for anyone who want to improve their freefall skills.

The AFF instructors are topnotch! They are particularly dutiful as they really care about the students and would make absolutely sure that you have all the information ingrained in your mind before sending you up in the air for each jump -- as opposed to simply rushing you through the course since there's no bonus for overtime. I had Nico as my coach - what an amazing and responsible instructor with a great sense of humour! He patiently spent almost 9 hours teaching us (3 hours longer than required) ground school essentials, going over EP drills, as well as answering questions we had despite the lengthy process. You just can't go wrong with the quality!

The Bombshelter with swimming pool makes the DZ an ideal place for summer pool parties too.

One of the best venues for skydiving I've seen anywhere

Skydive Perris Rated 5 by: Infidel1 on 2017-04-17

Pros: Tons of planes, Great Load Organizing, Professional staff
Cons: None to mention

I came to Perris in search of a more professional environment than the other local DZ. I was tired of showing up and then jumping alone because I wasn't part of the clique, or that I was older than the typical jumper there, or getting bumped off of a load because they had a tandem customer who wanted a video flyer. When I go skydiving, I go to be in a happy place, and I got tired of feeling like my business wasn't appreciated. There were some good people there when I started skydiving a couple of years ago, but now they are mostly gone. Surprisingly, some of them turned up at Perris!

Skydive Perris has an extremely professional vibe. I mean by example:
1.sheer number of planes-tons!
WAY qualified instructional staff--the best in the world.

excellent facilities (Bomb Shelter Grill and bar, swimming pool, paved runways, well kept landing areas,clean and modern bunk house, Pro Shop, Wind Tunnel on site, Fully staffed loft run by a veteran Master Rigger---And perhaps most importantly, hand towels in the bathrooms when you need to clean up).

The Instructors and Load Organizers are all exceptionally skilled and patient. Many of them are legends in the sport, yet still go out of their way to greet me by name whenever I come out to jump, and make sure I'm connected with the Load Organizers of the day. Also, there are TONS of wing suit flyers who come to Perris regularly, and the willingness of the Load Organizers to include me in whatever flights they are doing has been a real bonus for me. They ALWAYS want to include me in whatever jumps they are working on with other flyers, so my flying skills have improved dramatically in a short time. Also, they share their skills and knowledge freely, and make me feel like they really want to see me improve, like they want me to be a better jumping partner. In my opinion, at Perris, the staff is really their greatest asset.

It is obvious to me that the owners of Skydive Perris have put their best efforts into building and running a world class skydiving venue over the past 40 years. I feel that Skydive Perris truly values my business, and I highly recommend Skydive Perris for anyone thinking about skydiving in Southern California. It doesn't matter if you are brand new to skydiving, or a rank amateur, or a seasoned veteran in the sport; you will find Skydive Perris to be an exceptional place to skydive.

Equipment does not make up for the attitude

Skydive Perris Rated 3 by: SecondRound on 2015-05-06

Pros: Huge fleet of aircraft
Cons: Not all that welcoming

Found the DZ to be too busy to have much of a personality. They have a lot of aircraft and great facilities, but there is not much sense of welcome and the staff sometimes comes off like the Skygods of earlier times. It is probably a great place if you are a student or the member of a high profile team. Not so great if you are a fun jumper looking to make a few jumps. I will probably not return since there are other choices, but I would not hesitate to participate in an organized camp or activity.

Good for jump numbers, bad for vibe and chilling

Skydive Perris Rated 3 by: hotham15 on 2013-06-13

Pros: Facilities, Planes, Load Organising
Cons: Vibe for fun jumpers, location

I went here as a fun jumper in Feb 2013 with high hopes after glowing reports from many. At a first glance this place is amazing, lots of planes, all the facilities and load organisers galore.

In my opinion, the missing puzzle piece is the vibe. This DZ has no vibe or sole. They can put jumpers in the air like no other DZ I've seen but there wasn't so much as a smile from dusk till dawn.

Good for getting the jump numbers up but not for a place to stay and relax for a long time.

Another beatiful dz.

Skydive Perris Rated 5 by: flyngrudy18 on 2013-02-22

Pros: Planes, professionalism, friendliness, facilities.
Cons: None.

I' had a short visit, I' made only 3 jumps but I' had really good vibes about that dz.

The waiver does not require any recording ( see Elsinore) but they have no such hot girl on staff on that day.

The aircraft fleet is excellent, the landing area is good as well.

The main difference with Elsinore they have a restaurant and full bar, with a swimming poll outdoor, in case you are travelling with children.
There's also a tunnel on place, the day I' went there was closed, I' can say much about it.

It was a short visit, but I' had a very good impression about the dz.

The current jump ticket is 27 dollar at 13K.
