Our Facilities


Skydive Perris is extremely proud of its unrivaled world class facilities.  When you compare our facilities to any other skydiving center in the nation you'll quickly realize why we’re truly considered a ‘Skydiving Resort’ and that no other facility across the globe can compare to Skydive Perris.  If you don't want to settle for anything less than the best our sport has to offer and want to jump at a true skydiving mecca you've come to the right place.

With the largest, safest fleet of meticulously maintained turbine aircraft in the nation, an on-site wind tunnel,  ‘The Bombshelter’​​​​​ restaurant bar and grill, swimming pool and lounge area, bunkhouse, International House of Parachutists, RV hook-ups, camping site, Skydiving Pro-shop (Square 1) and a top-of-the-line rigging loft Skydive Perris truly is a skydiving mecca like no other.

The nations largest fleet of aircraft

We utilize the safest and most reliable type of airplanes in the industry. All of our skydiving aircraft are of twin turbine engine design for added safety and reliability. Additionally, our aircraft are specifically modified and upgraded to the highest standards specifically for skydiving accomodating both military and civilian jumpers and are meticulously maintained by our full time, on-site aircraft maintenance division.  Maybe you've seen us in the movies?... Our fleet of aircraft are the first choice for Hollywood producers and directors and have been used in many major motion pictures and various television and commercial productions.   We currently have 5 Skyvans, 3 Twin Otters, and a Douglas DC9 Jet!


DeHavilland DHC6 Twin Otter

The Twin Otter is a world renowned twin turbine engine powered airplane that is extremely versatile and safe. The factory didn’t know it at the time, but they really designed it for skydiving. Skydive Perris was the first skydiving center in the industry to purchase and operate our own Twin Otter in 1981. We currently operate three Twin Otter aircraft that are configured for 22 jumpers. The Twin Otter can carry 22 jumpers to an altitude of 12500′ above the ground in a safe, short, and comfortable 15 minutes. 


Short Brothers SC7 Skyvan

The Shorts Skyvan is another world renowned twin turbine utility type airplane that Skydive Perris has owned and operated since the early 1980’s. The Skyvan is the epitome of Utility when it comes to airplanes.  The Skyvan was specifically designed for military and civilian skydiving and is ideal for military training, large skydiving groups, wingsuits, and much more . The Skyvan is basically a giant cargo van that flies and can easily be converted for hauling or dropping large or odd sized objects.  Speaking of odd sized objects...we have been known to set up a slip-n-slide in the back of one of our Skyvans and let the skydivers slip and slide their way right into freefall.  Its spacious 18’x 6’5” cabin is configured for 22 jumpers and with Its size and configuration and a rear inflight opening door, it is very well suited for military and civilian jump training. We currently own and operate five Skyvan aircraft with more in our future.

Douglas DC9-21

The Douglas DC9 was another first, not only for Perris, but the world. It is the only privately owned commercial transport category Twin Jet aircraft that you can jump from in the world. The airplane is currently in storage and refit but will be back in the air before too long (we’ll keep you posted!). It is able to take 80 jumpers in full airline comfort to 13500′ AGL in a well-appointed cabin, with normal airline seats in 4 minutes! This is an amazing airplane, that was specifically modified by Perris for this role and used successfully. Don’t miss your chance to jump out of it when it gets back on line!

Our packing staff

Skydive Perris has certified FAA Senior and Master riggers on staff daily should you choose to forego packing for yourself.  Our staff of packers can be hired on a daily basis or per pack job to allow you to relax and focus on your skydives.

Our Swimming Pool

Remember to bring your bathing suit! What better way to relax after a long day of jumping out of our airplanes than by jumping into our swimming pool? Your non-jumper loved ones can also enjoy a day at the dropzone (as long as they're accompanied by a customer of the skydiving school or a licensed jumper) while relaxing in our sun loungers with a fantastic view of the landing area and skydivers at play. (Children under 16 years old must be under supervision at all times. No glass containers allowed in the swimming pool area please.)
