Just outside of Los Angeles, our private airport is located next to Lake Elsinore and the beautiful Ortega Mountains. Our facilities and aircraft are state of the art, and we’re able to facilitate film productions of all sizes.
Skydive Elsinore is arguably the most scenic drop zone in Southern California. For commercial and movie productions, you won’t find a more beautiful, natural, and varied landscape. The Ortega mountains add a breathtaking dimension and texture to the skydiving we film above them, and Lake Elsinore is located just at the end of our runway, giving us the ability to film skydiving directly over open water.
Our 24 seat Twin Otter and 14 seat Cessna Caravans are safe, fully insured, immaculately maintained, and economical for motion picture projects. We also have access to a variety of aircraft including A-Star and heavy lift helicopters, vintage airplanes like the DC-3, Beech 18 and more.
Everything you need to film a terrific aerial sequence is here. We provide the location, aircraft, skydivers, riggers, equipment, and aerial cinematography. We can also facilitate filming over downtown Los Angeles and just about anywhere throughout Southern California.
On filming projects, we work closely with Joe Jennings, a two time Emmy Award winner for cinematography and XGames champion. Joe’s work includes Charlie’s Angels, Air Force One, Triple XXX, San Andreas, Point Break, and more as well as many dozens of commercial and television projects. As a cinematographer, Joe was drawn to Skydive Elsinore for its unmatched scenery in Southern California, and he’s been filming here ever since.
Most important, we value a strong work ethic, and we care as much about the success of your project as you do. We want your experience at Skydive Elsinore to be nothing short of excellent, and we will work above and beyond our obligations to make sure that you and your clients leave with that positive feeling that comes after a great day of filming.
