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

I have been to Skydive Orange two times for tandem jumps.....WHAT A BLAST!!!  My first time was 1 year ago at which time I jumped with Ron and Lambert was my videographer.  My husband jumped with Ian and Mike was his videographer.  What an amazing experience.  These guys bring in just the right amount of humor to knock the edge off the jitters of doing such an "adrenaline junky" thing and provide solid education on how to properly cooperate in the experience so it can be all that you want it to be!  We thought about not doing the videos to save on money, but you MUST do a video at least the first time.  The whole experience is so exhilarating and unique that my brain simply could not recall the experience without the video.  WOW!!  What is important to me is that when I'm venturing out to do something I'm eager to do yet not so knowledgeable about......well, it's important to feel safe and secure.......these guys did just that because of their experience and respect for the sport!
I had such a fun time the first time that I took a girlfriend with me a month ago.  On this occasion, she jumped with Ron and had Dave as her videographer.  I jumped with Mike and opted to not do a video this time.  Again, it was an absolutely AMAZING experience!  These guys love what they do, they are passionate about it, and they love creating a positive and fun experience for those who are giving it a try!  If you're thinking about it.....well, stop thinking about it and just do it!  These guys are the best and it will be an amazing experience!
