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.

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

  • Experienced instructors that use new & high quality gear
  • New hangar - large, clean bathrooms
  • Crisp outside video and stills (other use hand-cams)

  • 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.

I just wanted to drop a quick note to you today to say how much I loved my dive yesterday morning. It was my 40th birthday on Tuesday and Jesse my boyfriend gave us this gift to start the next journey of our awesomeness. i have always wanted to do it but never took the plunge (so to speak).

I have to tell you that it was a fantastic experience all around. Mario was my trainer and he made me feel so comfortable and safe. I was never worried only nervous-excitement about what that initial moment was going to feel like, and I think no matter how many dives I do I am sure I will always feel a little of that. He was very kind and although i know it his job he seemed very professional and genuine.

Everyone we encountered was absolutely wonderful, from the fellow divers to the staff. 

And Lambert, I would like to say thank you again also. I love my video, I think you did a great job of capturing some really cool moments. You added so much to my experience. Kept me out of my head and in the moment. And you too seemed genuine and it was fun having you there to interact with on the way up and on the way back down! So thank you. ( I am trying to convince Jesse that I need the pictures too) 

So in closing I will highly recommend you guys to anyone in the future, the entire experience from start to finish was so so great. We had an absolute blast. I will never forget my 40th birthday. 

And Thanks!
