Skydiving For the Family

Friday, May 3, 2019

Are you interested in scheduling an outing your family will never forget? Sure, there is always the beach, but eventually, you will begin to feel a little “over” the sunburnt skin, crowded beaches, and sand in your…well…everywhere.

Have you ever thought about skydiving? Most people don’t know that skydiving is a family-friendly destination experience.

In fact, there are several reasons skydiving makes an excellent option for the family.

Keep Your Support System with You

You have shared countless celebrations with your family: birthdays, retirements, and anniversaries. For each milestone you’ve reached, you’ve asked your family to join in and make it all the more special, so why not bring them along for your skydive?

Do you have someone special in your life? Are you looking for a unique way to ask him or her to be your better half forever? It’s not unheard of to pop the question to the one you love with a skydiving proposal. Gather your friends and family, skydive, and change your life forever.

Great Way to Bond

In the cell phone age, it’s easy to dissociate. We’re all milling about, captivated by screens, each (wo)man a world unto themselves. Let’s shake that up by giving your family something to share—a skydive.

See, after a skydive, you’ll long to have someone to talk about it with, and dinner table conversation with the family will never be the same.  P.S. If you capture your skydives on video, you can re-live the experience again and again.

Provide New Perspective

Involve your family in one of the greatest adventures of your life, and if they join you, see them in an entirely new light. Your stoic aunt? Not so stoic after a skydive.

Often it seems there’s a definite generational gap, what can a teenager and a grandfather possibly have in common (aside from the same last name)? Well, let’s face it, skydiving is downright cool. Even your moody teen cannot deny that. Help bridge the gap between the ages with a tandem skydive.

All Ages Can Spectate

Skydiving has no real age limit; we’ve taken individuals well into their nineties on their first tandem skydiving experience. However, there is an age minimum. Per the United States Parachute Association, a jumper must be 18 years of age or older to participate in parachuting activities.

Though exceptions have been made and the restriction has been waved for terminally ill individuals through the Make a Wish Program.

While a jumper must be 18 years of age or older to participate, even tots are welcome to join in on the fun… on the ground that is. There’s something truly captivating about watching canopies descend: the folds of inflated fabric providing flight enchant and delight individuals of all ages. At Skydive Orange, we provide our customers, their family, and friends with a family friendly facility complete with ample shaded indoor/ outdoor seating as well as a specific spectator viewing area.

Is skydiving too extreme for the family?

We don’t think so. From 18-80+, every member of your family can enjoy a skydive. Whether they are spectating or participating, at Skydive Orange, they can join in on the fun!
