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.

"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)

Virginia Wounded Warrior Program

Virginia Wounded Warrior Program

Dear Skydive Orange,

On the weekend of June 1-3, 2012 the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program held a peer retreat for Virginia Veterans.  The retreat was meant to help our returning servicemembers recover from not just visible wounds but the invisible wounds as well.  To build friendships and camaraderie we decided to go skydiving.  Your organization was very helpful in planning the activity and remaining flexible with us.  Your staff was very friendly and made it an amazing day for all of us involved.  Most of the veterans who participated had never skydived before and your excellent staff and instructors were able to put many of the Veterans minds at ease.  Every veteran involved had nothing but glowing endorsements for Skydive Orange, and everybody involved who made this a day we will never forget.  Many Veterans returning home have come back to hard times both physically and emotionally.  Skydive Orange gave us the opportunity to get out of our heads and enjoy the world in a way many of us had never imagined.  On behalf of the Virgina Wounded Warrior Program and all the veterans involved, I would like to thank you for the experience like no other!
