Meet the Oranges!

Matt Fistler

meet the oranges

He’s a coach and an angle organizer at Skydive Orange. He has a coach rating and 460+ jumps.

Why did you start skydiving: I started skydiving because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I finally had the money to do it.

What has skydiving taught you: Skydiving’s taught me that the skydiving community is pretty awesome. You don’t have to be a badass to jump out of planes, but there are a whole lot of really good, really inherently badass people in the sport. Everyone is good to each other and wants everyone else to have a fun, safe time. When someone gives another person advice or scolds someone, it’s not because they don’t like the other person. It’s because they saw something that might have been dangerous, and they want everyone to go home upright at the end of the day.
Meet the Oranges


“Angle flying is my jam! If you want to get up and fly on the angle, come find me!”


Why do you think everyone should skydive at least once in their lifetime: You’ll never know what skydiving is like from the ground, so give it a shot, and you’ll love it!

Make sure the next time your out you jump with Matt Fistler; he’s got the experience and is an all around fun guy to jump with! Hone in on your angle skills; Matt also welcomes newly licensed jumpers to try angle for the first time!

About Whitney Payne

Co-Operations Manager at Skydive Orange - Working with Skydive Orange for 10+ years - Previously positions held: Office manager, manifest, guest services, social media manager, she does it all! “If you told be 10 years ago I’d be co-managing a skydiving facility and loving every minute of it, I would have laughed in your face. I am not an adrenaline junkie, not spontaneous and definitely not a thrill-seeker but I love these people. Skydivers are truly a different breed of people and I am forever thankful for them accepting me into their community. Watching people visit Skydive Orange to face fears, celebrate milestones or just jump out of a perfectly good airplane has been truly life changing for me and helped be become the person I am today.” – Whitney Payne

The best thing about Skydive Orange is the attitude and culture. The vibe is to welcome new jumpers to the sport and the world of skydiving. You are not treated like a revenue source. You are treated with care and attention.

The largest tandem skydiving center near Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland.
