The Lightning Flight campus at Skydive Elsinore offers the most comprehensive First Flight training in the world, as well as load organizing for all levels, events throughout the year, and advanced coaching for all disciplines. Whether you want to put on a wingsuit for the first time, train to compete in wingsuit racing or as part of an acro team, or just flock for fun, our coaches are here to help.

What sets our training apart is personal attention and a clear progression. While some wingsuit schools do only one coach jump with their beginner course, we ask you to spend a day with us and leave as an independent wingsuiter with a plan for additional skills to practice on your own.
Our First Flight Course lasts for a full day and includes a comprehensive classroom briefing, followed by a minimum of four one-on-one coached jumps. It is designed to clear you for solo supervision and introduce you to the fundamentals of wingsuit relative work.
Skydive Elsinore has an on-site gear store.
We have a full size range of Squirrel beginner and intermediate wingsuits. We offer the free use of a Squirrel Hatch for all students taking our First Flight Course. We encourage our students to progress as soon as they are safely able to the Swift, which we offer for rent on a per-jump or per-day basis. If you know you want to continue wingsuiting, we will measure you for a suit of your own (delivery time is 5-6 weeks).
We also offer Performance Designs Horizon canopies as free demos to our First Flight Course students. This ultralight, wingsuit specific canopy packs easily into containers at least one size smaller, allowing you to upsize for a safer wing loading (recommended 1.3: 1 or lower).

For experienced wingsuiters who would like to start on a path of instruction and leadership, Taya Weiss runs wingsuit coach rating courses recognized by Squirrel(although the knowledge is applicable to all brands). The goal of the initial rating course is certifying you to teach the Lightning Flight First Flight Course. Once you become certified, you gain access to online resources, mentorship, and continuing education. You will receive a Sigma Wingsuit Coach Merit when you pass the course.
