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

It was AWESOME!! 

My tandem skydive in September 2012 was a truly amazing experience. Everything was perfect - it was a perfect day and the most breathtaking ride. My instructor (Kevin) was exceptional in that he took us through the skills required for the jump, walking us through every step on the ground before we went up in the air. I also had a lot of fun with my camera man - it was just awesome watching him fly around us. The entire staff was courteous and very professional, making sure that we had everything that we needed and we felt comfortable. 

The all inclusive package was worthwhile - it came with plenty of pictures and a video of the entire jump, starting with the short interview. After the jump, I could show and tell my mother and father as well as other family members and friends what I did. Yes, several family members and friends thought I was crazy but they could see that I had an awesome time.

I had an adventure of a life time. 

I will be sending a number of tandem jumpers your way, and I look forward to jumping again. 

Please thank your staff for making it an awesome experience.
