Tandem Skydive

First Time

You’re 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.

Dear Skydive Orange Family, 

This letter is dedicated to the AWESOME staff at Skydive Orange. Your professionalism with a side of hospitality was greatly appreciated. I visited Skydive Orange as part of my 30th birthday celebration... words can't begin to describe the feelings I had then and those memories that remain vivid in my mind. 

Lambert - Thanks! Oh Wow! My pictures are posted everywhere from home to work to my FaceBook. The video is replayed frequently to say the least. You caught all the best moments, despite the fact you couldn't see my face... that will teach me to go skydiving in -2 degree weather. You are awesome! 

Denzil - What a remarkable instructor! My comfort level exceeded my own expectations. I anticipated a hectic nervous wreck. Instead I felt secure and safe. Thank you for taking good care of me. We made a great team. We will have to do it again sometime! This is your official warning, I will be back... 

Again, thank you Skydive Orange for making my 30th birthday a hit! I will be back... with some friends.
