Skydive Orange Inc

11339 Bloomsbury Road
Orange, VA 22960


Skydive Orange originally operated out of Bradshaw Airpark in Buckingham County, and was called Buckingham Parachute Center. Founder Don Simms brought the company to Orange County, and the first skydive was made in Orange in 1977. We have been in continuous operation at Orange County Airport ever since.

In 1984, management changed hands and we officially became a Club-operated drop zone. The name Skydive Orange was inspired by Gus Wing, and it's what we've been called for the past 25+ years.  We've grown at a swift pace, and we continue to flourish.  We look forward to the future - welcoming new tandem skydivers every weekend, teaching AFF students, and growing as a club.

We are a member of the Orange County Chamber of Commerce! Check out everything that Orange County has to offer!
