My question was: Does the free falling objects experience time dilation? maffsolo, it is possible to be in free fall motion around a planet, without ever colliding with that planet. Ex: Moon motion around Earth. not sure what's your point (if any).
The gravitational will not be equal at different heights - and this difference will be manifest
As FLR mentioned you need to be careful when you say freefall. If someone turfs you out of a u2 spyplane you will freefall to earth at first (very thin atmosphere); the moon is also in freefall - ie they follow courses in which the only force is gravity. If you change height (ie distance from centre of mass) then the gravitational potential changes - and there will be a dilation effect between the two points.
