This was my Mother's Day gift and I was so excited! Our sitter fell through so my husband and I had to jump separately. We did a tandem and my instructor was Dan. He was great and patient with me. The staff especially Whitney at the front desk was incredibly helpful and friendly. They have a quasi food bar there... More

So in conjunction with her 50th birthday, I did some research and discovered that Skydive Orange is a reputable company in VA, and near to the DC area where we reside. That reputation is what you want if you are going to... More
