What a Spring it’s been! The sun has been shining, skyvans flying, new students becoming licensed skydivers and organizers of every discipline welcoming novice and world class jumpers with a smile and great skydives.
I’m so proud of Skydive Perris when I see the place operating like this. It takes so many people to make it tick. The loaders getting everyone on the airplanes safely and efficiently, the bad spot drivers looking out for you at all times and making sure you don’t have to walk too far, the Ground Safety Officer coordinating the airplanes and directing the canopy traffic, Instructors who love watching their students learn, Riggers who pack every rig as if their kid was jumping it, the best pilots in the business, aircraft mechanics that fix airplanes before they break, wind tunnel Instructors who get you in the air even between loads, the Bomb Shelter crew who can handle a huge party or an early morning cup of coffee and the maintenance staff who keep the airport looking like a first class resort no matter how busy we get.
We truly do try to go the extra mile to provide you with a fabulous drop zone and wonderful community. And if there’s anything we’re not doing I hope you know you can always tell me.
So here’s the catch, operating costs have steadily increased and we haven’t raised jump rates in 7 years. Starting June 1 jump tickets will be going up from $26 to $28. This will help us to continue to provide you with the first class service that Skydive Perris in known for. Thank you for your continued support and making Skydive Perris your home away from home.
See you at the DZ soon!
Can you believe we’re already six months into 2018? Don’t worry, we’ve got even more stuff for the second half of the year than we did for the first!
