For Licensed Skydivers-

Skydive Orange is a club-run drop zone operating out of Orange County Airport in Orange, VA. We are a USPA group member drop zone. We have been in continuous operation since 1977, making Skydive Orange one of the oldest club-operated drop zones in the country.

We sponsor load organizers for experienced jumpers every weekend. You will be able to find a freefly or belly organizer every Saturday and Sunday putting large groups together or coaching smaller groups. We also have frequent visiting organizers. In 2011, we hosted Melanie Curtis for freefly coaching and organizing, Andreea Olea and Darren Burke for wingsuit organizing, Laura Wagner for a freefly camp, Jessica Edgeington for a canopy course and held a 12-way invitational belly camp. We host skills camps throughout the year, including events such as Scrambles and mixed RW/canopy accuracy contests.

This year we'll be having a Sisters in Skydiving event,  scrambles, canopy course, night jumps and much more.  Of course there is always our annual Orange Boogie August 17-19th! Check out Events and stay tuned for details!

Skydive Tandem

Tandem skydive in Northern, Virginia, Gift certificates for one-day first tandem jumps
The best introduction to skydiving is tandem because it is like learning to fly with an instructor every step of the way. Your jump can either be a joy ride with your instructor taking care of almost everything, or if you like we can make it more of a learning jump, teaching you to watch your altimeter, pull the handle just behind your right hip at 5,500', and flying the parachute with your instructor. Hundreds of Northern, VA residents have made their first skydive at Orange with out USPA rated tandem instructors, using our state-of-the-art parachute systems. We pride ourselves on the caliber of tandem instructors and videographers who will be jumping with you from the best jump plane at the best skydiving facilities near Northern, VA.
