Three of my friends and I went to
Skydive Orange this past weekend to tandem for the first time,
and we all had a BLAST!! We definitely owe our amazing
experience to the staff. They were all SO professional,
friendly, and FUN. So, THANK YOU to all of them for making it
such an incredible experience!! I'd especially like to thank my
instructor, Mike, and my videographer, Larry, for helping make
my 23rd the best birthday yet! I am so glad I have the video
& photos to help me remember it forever. They turned out
I would HIGHLY recommend Orange to any other first-timers out
there. If you want to partake in the most thrilling experience
of your life while feeling completely safe and comfortable at
the same time, go to Skydive Orange!
Thanks again, everyone!!! I'll be back :)

You took photos and video of me skydiving yesterday. I was the

great photos! Great job!
Ronald Pentz - Charleston, SC
Last weekend I flew from Charleston, South Carolina to
participate in a tandem skydive at Skydive Orange in Orange,
VA. My instructor was Mario, and the photographer/videographer
As a first time skydiver, I noted that Mario and the
cameraman were well in sync and in contorl of the situation.
Mario did a fantastic job and demonstrated confidence and
technical proficiency as an instructor. Lambert's photos and
video were very clear and captured the event with great
Thanks to Mario and Lambert, I am a very satisfied
customer. The experience was amazing and unforgettable.
To the Skydive Orange Family,
Thank you all so much for the absolutely amazing experience my
friend Melissa and I had last Sunday. I had been dying to
skydive ever since I turned 18 and I've spent years
researching where to jump. I could not have asked for a better team
of professionals to jump with. Thanks so much to my
wonderful photographer Grayson and my fantastic instructor
Kevin! You guys rock! I will always cherish that once in a
lifetime experience you guys gave me.
Expect to see me back soon! Be safe out there guys! -

(birthday boy) and I wanted to tell you that I LOVED the video
and the pictures, you are the best!!
I'm so glad we chose Orange for our first jump. Everybody was
really nice!! It was an amazing experience. I loved skydiving
and I definitely want to do it again! I hope I can jump again
guys!! Please say Hi to Mario for me. He was an amazing
instructor. Made me feel confident and secured before and during
Thanks for everything. Hope to see you soon! - Ericka
Virginia Wounded Warrior Program
Dear Skydive Orange,
On the weekend of June 1-3, 2012 the Virginia Wounded Warrior
Program held a peer retreat for Virginia Veterans. The
retreat was meant to help our returning servicemembers recover
from not just visible wounds but the invisible wounds as well.
To build friendships and camaraderie we decided to go skydiving.
Your organization was very helpful in planning the activity and
remaining flexible with us. Your staff was very friendly
and made it an amazing day for all of us involved. Most of
the veterans who participated had never skydived before and your
excellent staff and instructors were able to put many of the
Veterans minds at ease. Every veteran involved had nothing
but glowing endorsements for Skydive Orange, and everybody
involved who made this a day we will never forget. Many
Veterans returning home have come back to hard times both
physically and emotionally. Skydive Orange gave us the
opportunity to get out of our heads and enjoy the world in a way
many of us had never imagined. On behalf of the Virgina
Wounded Warrior Program and all the veterans involved, I would
like to thank you for the experience like no other!

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 :-)

Hey Chris, I hope you will remember me from our tandem skydive
last Sunday. I just wanted to say thank you for putting me at
ease and for making this one of, if not the most exciting and
thrilling experiences I have ever had. Flying on a F-18 was
close but really does not rival what I felt on Sunday. Here are
a few pics of us. By the way, Lambert did an incredible job and
you surely did!
I intend to go back to Skydive Orange either to jump again or to
be with friends who I will be encouraging to jump. I already
have a former NASA Astronaut friend who wants to take his
sons out there and I bet he will. I will be mentioning your name
to a number of people, for sure.
Again, thank you for making this experience more than amazing.
You are a sweetheart!
Happy Easter to you and your family.

Dear Skydive Orange Family,
This letter is dedicated to the
AWESOME staff at Skydive Orange. Your professionalism
with a side of hospitality was greatly appreciated. I
visited Skydive Orange as part of my 30th birthday
celebration... words can't begin to describe the feelings
I had then and those memories that remain vivid in my mind.
Lambert - Thanks! Oh Wow! My pictures
are posted everywhere from home to work to my FaceBook.
The video is replayed frequently to say the least. You
caught all the best moments, despite the fact you
couldn't see my face... that will teach me to go skydiving
in -2 degree weather. You are awesome!
Denzil - What a remarkable instructor!
My comfort level exceeded my own expectations. I
anticipated a hectic nervous wreck. Instead I felt secure
and safe. Thank you for taking good care of me. We made
a great team. We will have to do it again sometime!
This is your official warning, I will be back...
Again, thank you Skydive Orange for making my 30th birthday
a hit! I will be back... with some friends.
Michelle Day - Monroe, MI
My name is Michelle and I was there this
past Sat...If it weren't for the photos/videos I would be
forever confused about what the !*-* happened after we
jumped! I now know I really WAS head first for a bit:) lol. My
pictures are priceless to say the least.
Thanks again Lambert for capturing these moments (including
those when I couldn't breathe!) And thanks to Mario, he was
fabulous as well.
I loved everything and would not change a thing...I'll
definitely make the trek from Michigan to Orange for my next
