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 Washington, DC, 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 Quantico, 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 Quantico, VA.

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, "the District", or simply D.C., is the capital of the United States. On July 16, 1790, the Residence Act approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast. As permitted by the U.S. Constitution, the District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States Congress and is therefore not a part of any U.S. state.

The states of Maryland and Virginia each donated land to form the federal district, which included the preexisting settlements of Georgetown and Alexandria; however, Congress returned the Virginia portion in 1846. Named in honor of George Washington, the City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the new national capital. Congress created a single municipal government for the whole District of Columbia after the American Civil War.


The District is divided into four quadrants of unequal area: Northwest (NW), Northeast (NE), Southeast (SE), and Southwest (SW). The axes bounding the quadrants radiate from the U.S. Capitol building. All road names include the quadrant abbreviation to indicate their location and house numbers generally correspond with the number of blocks away from the Capitol. Most streets are set out in a grid pattern with east–west streets named with letters (e.g., C Street SW) and north–south streets with numbers (e.g., 4th Street NW).
