CANOPY SWOOPING
Canopy Piloting (swooping) encompasses several disciplines, all involving the flight of a skydiving parachute either at high altitude or close to the ground.
"Swooping" is one form of canopy piloting and is a growing activity in the skydiving world. Many think the reason for this is that it is one of the few skydiving related events that are, for the most part, spectator friendly.
 
Swooping entails the canopy pilot deploying their canopy at 5000 ft, piloting their canopy to an "initiation" point over the swoop course, then turning into a rotating dive dramatically increasing the canopy's speed. The canopy pilot stops the canopy's rotation on the proper course heading, while at the correct altitude allowing their canopy to recover from the dive and level out with maximum speed before entering the course, Maximum speeds regularly reaching in excess of 90 mph. Needless to say, you'll need the experience of hundreds of skydives and specialized one-on-one instruction before starting to learn the fine art of high performance Canopy swooping. If you never made a skydive before, then your Canopy Swooping training starts here. If you skydive but aren't already a licensed skydiver, then your Parachute Swooping training starts here because you need to get your skydiving license before you even think about starting wingsuit skydiving instruction! After you've got your A license and made at least 200 freefall skydives, then we'll arrange wingsuit school for you

Skydive Orange- taking folks from Annandale skydiving for the first time at this location for over 33 years! In fact, during this time thousands of people from Fairfax County skydived with us for their first tandem jumps.

Annandale is unique in that its history can be traced directly to the pre-Revolutionary period, when, in 1685, an Englishman by the name of Col. William H. Fitzhugh purchased over 24,000 acres of land and his descendants later named the tract "Ravensworth." From an untamed wilderness, Fitzhugh converted the land into one of the largest tobacco plantations in Northern Virginia.
