Advanced Free Fall Program Review,

Arrival: The Wind Tunnel is easy to spot, when traveling by car. There is a huge parking lot that accommodate most types of vehicles. Arriving early is important, to save yourself some walking distance.

Layout of the Facilities: Straight forward, and it was easy to find the booking area, restaurant, swimming pool, and the practice zones.

Staff: The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, they were able to answer my questions about liability weavers, AFF program, and about instruction time.

The program itself: The in class assessment and instruction was good, because we were drilled and practiced the procedures to remain safe, and had to pass a written test.
the levels were structured and built apon each other. the one level that is difficult and disjointed from others is the jump from level 4 to 5, where you start freefalling on your own. I recommend taking tunnel time and spending 5-10 minutes in the wind tunnel before level 5, just practicing flying in a stable belly to earth position. this was the key for me to blast through the remaining levels.
I was fairly confident after about 5-6 jumps and asked my instructor/coach to downsize, and they agreed. this definitely sets them apart because they will help you progress if you are progressing at a faster pace.

The Weather: being a beginner the weather stops you from flying and sometimes having to wait, this is a great thing for safety, but bad if you're eager to skydive.

Physical requirements (my opinion): Being used to the desert heat especially when being all geared up, can get quite hot. Added to the fact that you could have a weather delay, however you are in great company. When climbing to altitude, it gets a lot cooler, so there is some temperature differences.
While carrying the gear, it weighs around 10-20 pounds that gets distributed on your shoulders. When in free fall, you can't even tell that your carrying extra weight at all which is nice. Lastly, being able to sit on your thighs while in the harness for about 5-10 minutes, while descending with the parachute.

Improvements: could maybe shift around the tunnel time, to focus more on stable belly to earth flying, right before AFF level 5.

Over All Rating: 5/5

This was an amazing family experience! The indoor skydiving instructor was fun and engaging. We took great pics on our own, but also paid for a few pics too. We had a blast. Highly recommend this exciting adventure for all ages. Super fun!

I never leave Yelp reviews but Jocelyn was so amazing that I couldn't not! I was terrified to Skydive but she was so reassuring and supportive and totally calmed me down because I knew I was in such capable hands! She was also so nice and if I ever skydive again it's going to be with Jocelyn! Seriously she was the best and it was the best experience and I’m so happy I did it!!!

This drop zone has the best planes, instructors, and bar in the area. Very safe conditions and staff from skydive Perris. The indoor tunnel is also a great place to train for the free fall. This drop zone has rooms to sleep there as well as showers, bunks, and a full kitchen to eat . Make sure you ask to jump out of sky van!@!@!@

WOW, what an unbelievable experience! I just completed my first tandem jump and wow…what a rush! Freefall is crazy! It’s loud, windy, a real mind scrambler, but exhilarating! And once the chute opens, coming down is such a thrilling experience. And those views - can't beat them!

I've thought about skydiving for years, and finally decided to make the jump for my birthday and am so glad I did. I had a terrific experience the entire time. I didn't realize how big the place was, they have a restaurant, pool area, and viewing areas. The staff was great, answering my questions and getting me ready. My instructor Kenny Beach and photographer Cory Harrison were absolutely terrific. Kenny walked me through all aspects of the jump and made me feel totally at ease - he was an absolute professional, I would totally jump with him again. And Cory's photos and videos were perfect. If you're on the fence thinking about it, JUST GO. You'll thank me later:)

Thank you again to Lee for being the most awesome skydive leader! I was completely comfortable and calm during my entire experience, and that's something I didn't think I was capable of! I can't imagine having gone anywhere else for my first skydive.

Today I had my second tandem skydive at Skydive Perris. My instructor, Cody McMains, was the embodiment of the positive vibe Skydive Perris consistently offers. I highly recommend Cody and Skydive Perris for anyone interested in their first or hundredth time skydiving.

Geoffrey, thank you so much for your review! Second tandem, that's great <3 Are you coming back for more, or are you ready to do your first solo skydive? ('Solo' is a big word, actually, since you would have two instructors jumping with you and a radio in your helmet to guide your landing) It's an awesome experience, and we sincerely hope to share it with you! And if you don't feel ready, we can't wait to do another tandem with you too! Once again, thank you for being such a great ambassador. Come back soon! Blue Skies

I had the BEST time yesterday doing a tandem jump with Veronica Giraldo. Veronica is a great instructor. She's really fun and friendly. She explained everything (more than once) which calmed my nerves and made it an incredible experience. I really appreciated the slow descend and the soft landing! I was happy I got a video package. Donovan (videographer) was a lot of fun and did a great job.
