First Jump! Tandem Skydiving

During a tandem skydive, a student skydiver is attached to a certified USPA tandem instructor by a harness.  While attached to your instructor, together you will exit the plane, descend in freefall, and pilot a single canopy to the ground.  For most people who want a one-time skydiving experience, a tandem skydive is the method to choose.  Twenty minutes before your jump you will be introduced to your tandem instructor who will outfit you with all the necessary gear. You will also meet your videographer if applicable. Make a reservation today! Call:  (703) 759-3483!

Ready to take the dive? You’ve made the right choice.

Skydive Orange always—always—puts safety first. As a USPA drop zone, we adhere to the highest USPA safety and training standards. Our Vector Sigma parachute rigs, routinely serviced by FAA-certified riggers, are the best in the industry. Our highly experienced tandem instructors [links to “/about/staff” page], many of whom have been with Skydive Orange for many years, are all USPA rated, with a combined total of more than 50,000 jumps and over 80 years of skydiving experience.

You bring the attitude. We have the altitude.

Shop around. Read the fine print. Smaller planes at other jump zones can fly up to 10,000 feet, but, when busy, they may only take you to 5,000 or 6,000 feet. And you’re none the wiser because they don’t provide an altimeter for you to see. At Skydive Orange, we jump from 13,500 feet—and we provide you with an altimeter to prove it!

This was my second jump, but my first HALO (High Altitude Low Opening) tandem here at Skydive Orange.  The staff was very professional, and answered all my questions.  I was impressed with the instruction I received.  It didn't feel rushed and everything was well planned.  Just because you have a reservation doesn't mean you are boarding the plane at that time.  They did tell you that you can be at the jump zone for about 6 hours.  You need to take in consideration the waivers you have to sign, and the folks who are ahead of you to jump.  

My instructor Mario was AWESOME!  He was very patient and very knowledgeable. He kept me calm, and told me the play by play of all what was going to happen.  He even talked about the school they had there if I was interested,  

The jump I did was very expensive, but the memories I have are priceless.  I took home a good quality pictures and video.  Thank you Ryan for the awesome pictures and video.  

You guys have my business!!  I look forward to working on getting certified next year.  Thank you Skydive Orange!  YOU ROCK!! Elizabeth H - Clinton MD - September 22nd 2014
