Tandem Skydive

First Time

You are over two miles high, and your adrenaline is pumping. You exit the plane harnessed to a USPA certified tandem instructor.

Freefall takes your breath away. Fear turns to exhilaration. The canopy opens, and you float down into the beautiful Virginia countryside.

Experienced Skydivers

If you are serious about skydiving, this is the place for you. For more than a decade, the US Military has used our facility for training purposes—proof positive that we are Virginia’s premier skydiving center.

"I appreciate how smoothly everything flowed from the pre-jump training Lambert conducted, to Mario helping to put my jump suit on and for being my "angel" up in the sky at 13,500 feet; keeping me safe and allowing me to have a blast. The video and photos that Lambert took were completely awesome ..." - Julie Morris-5/11/2014 Read more

The Orange Advantage

  • You can jump from 13,500 ft. (2.5 miles) - more freefall time (others take you to less than 10,000 ft.)
  • Large & comfortable aircraft - jump with your friends and family (others use 4-seaters)
  • Experienced instructors that use new & high quality gear
  • New hangar - large, clean bathrooms
  • Crisp outside video and stills (other use hand-cams)
  • Opportunity to become licensed
  • Skydive Orange has been in continuous operation since 1977. In fact, Skydive Orange is one of the oldest club-operated drop zones in the country.

What does this mean for you?

You get to experience skydiving at a drop zone known to attract and retain the best skydiving instructors in Virginia. We take you higher, in a more comfortable plane; you get more freefall time. Our videographers capture you, the plane, the sky, and the gorgeous view of the mountains.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Lambert, Mario and the rest of the Skydive Orange staff for the absolutely AWESOME time I had jumping with you yesterday! (7/7/13) As I'm sure you could tell (because I said it about a thousand times) I was just a tad nervous about the thought of exiting a plane before it landed, but you all made me feel totally safe while keeping it relaxed and fun. The pictures and video that you took are soooo awesome and I'll be reliving the memories for years to come thanks to you!

All day today when I went to work, my friends were asking me what it was like and I couldn't think of anything to compare the experience to. As soon as I left the plane my fear just melted away (it may not have sounded like it because I screamed my head off for about the first 10 seconds) but it was the most free, fun, and exhilarating things I've ever experienced and I absolutely plan to be back!! :) I attached one of my favorite pictures from the jump which just so happens to be my facebook profile picture now! haha I think Mario's face is priceless and it was right before you did that cool flip on your back :) Anyways, I just wanted to say a huge thanks again and I hope to be seeing you again sooner than later! 

Your fellow duke, 

Jillian Goodrich :)
