Tandem Skydive

First Time

You are over two miles high, and your adrenaline is pumping. You exit the plane harnessed to a USPA certified tandem instructor.

Freefall takes your breath away. Fear turns to exhilaration. The canopy opens, and you float down into the beautiful Virginia countryside.

Experienced Skydivers

If you are serious about skydiving, this is the place for you. For more than a decade, the US Military has used our facility for training purposes—proof positive that we are Virginia’s premier skydiving center.

"I appreciate how smoothly everything flowed from the pre-jump training Lambert conducted, to Mario helping to put my jump suit on and for being my "angel" up in the sky at 13,500 feet; keeping me safe and allowing me to have a blast. The video and photos that Lambert took were completely awesome ..." - Julie Morris-5/11/2014 Read more

The Orange Advantage

  • You can jump from 13,500 ft. (2.5 miles) - more freefall time (others take you to less than 10,000 ft.)
  • Large & comfortable aircraft - jump with your friends and family (others use 4-seaters)
  • Experienced instructors that use new & high quality gear
  • New hangar - large, clean bathrooms
  • Crisp outside video and stills (other use hand-cams)
  • Opportunity to become licensed
  • Skydive Orange has been in continuous operation since 1977. In fact, Skydive Orange is one of the oldest club-operated drop zones in the country.

What does this mean for you?

You get to experience skydiving at a drop zone known to attract and retain the best skydiving instructors in Virginia. We take you higher, in a more comfortable plane; you get more freefall time. Our videographers capture you, the plane, the sky, and the gorgeous view of the mountains.

Hey Lambert,

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the weekend tandem, I had a fabulous time and can't wait to jump again!

Here are 3 of my favorite photos with you and Kevin, who I have to say is absolutely amazing, he is a fantastic instructor and if I wasn't already married I would want to marry him!  :-)

The video is brilliant, I have watched it over 10 times already!  I particularly like when you cheer and clap with your hands.............and then clap with your feet :-).

The music 7, Get the Party Started and In the End (3 songs that actually mean a lot to me anyway), works brilliantly with the video, not sure what the country option was like but you definitely made the right choice for me.

The second photo was just before a kind of a high five/push that sent us into a really cool spin in the direction Kevin is pointing, this looks very cool on the video.

I will stop rambling on, I am sure you better things to do with your time than reading emails, like jumping out of planes!  Thanks again and thanks to all the team at Skydive Orange, I cant wait for my next visit :-)

Best wishes
