“Over five years in the sport and over 1,000 jumps. Licensed at Skydive Orange after starting student progression at Virginia Skydiving Center. Now get to jump and work alongside many of the instructors and coaches I had as a student. I was immediately drawn to Skydive Orange due to its focus on safety and the incredible knowledge and experience between the staff, organizers, and the fun-jumper community. I feel energized every morning coming to work and lucky that I get to make the experience, whether it be a student in our Accelerated Freefall (AFF) program or a Tandem student, so memorable for so many people who come to our home.” – J. Lighthall
