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!
