From October twelfth through the sixteenth Perris Airport will host a little event known as the California State Record 200 Way Meet-up Invitational. What this means to those of us not so familiar with skydiving lingo is that two hundred experienced skydivers from all over the world will come together for five days at Perris Airport to break a California state record.

Each of these highly qualified jumpers has been hand selected and invited to participate in this exclusive event. The ultimate goal is for all 200 participants to simultaneously jump from nine specially equipped air crafts in an effort to achieve a predetermined (and extensively orchestrated) formation. Should they succeed, they will hold the new state record for largest jump.

The current record belongs to a group of 181 females who achieved the record-breaking formation several years ago at Perris’s Jump For The Cause.
