Plus, up to 8 people can ride up in the aircraft, meaning that large groups wanting to experience skydiving together are welcome here!
At Skydive Orange, we know that the time you spend on the ground training is vital to making sure that you are comfortable with your instructor and ready to take the jump. This is why we have recently invested in constructing a new hangar that provides our guests with plenty of space.
