If you're serious about skydiving Perris is a great place to get started. They have all kinds of jumps and experiences. Probably the most intense thing you can do on your first try is the excellerated free fall. Basically you take a 7 hour class that starts at about 7 am and then jump out of the plane with two instructors who later let go of you and then you direct yourself. It's really something. I recommend getting the role of film and video. If you like you can bring a CD with your choice song and they'll add it to your video. Perris is also great if your bringing along a friend or girlfriend who isn't interested in jumping. There is a bar, a restaurant, internet, and a swimming pool on the premises with an outlet shopping mall not too far away.
