RELATIVE WORK (RW) AKA "BELLY FLYING"
Known to experienced skydivers as “RW” or “Belly Flying”, relative work is defined as 2 or more skydivers flying relative to each other in a “belly to earth” position.
 
Each jumper uses specific body positions and clothing to assist them in staying relative to a group or another skydiver. Freefall speed is controlled by wind resistance and the amount of weight we put in a specific area, therefore a short heavy person will fall faster than a tall light person. We adjust for these differences in speed with different types of clothing, body positions, or by adding actual weight to some extremely light individuals. When participating in RW you will notice that all jumpers have extra material on their jumpsuits at the upper arms and legs, this stuffed and sewn material is known as a “gripper”. Jumpers use the gripper to hold on to each other at pre-determined times during the freefall.

Skydive Tandem

Tandem skydive in Roanoke, 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 Roanoke, 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 Roanoke, VA.
