Skydive Orange  happenings - 
Breaking news- January 2011 Achievements- January 2011

We jumped a bunch July 4 weekend, Saturday, Sunday, & Monday, July 2, 3, 4 and although we are closed this week until possibly Friday, we plan to jump all weekend long July 8-9, 2011. On weekdays, there will be plenty of room on the plane for more $21 weekday jump licensed skydivers. Saturday & Sunday, experienced manifest opens 8 AM each day.  We plan to jump all  Saturdays and Sundays from now on.

_______________
March 7, 2011 -$1 / jump price rise for licensed skydivers- Aircraft maintenance costs have risen much faster than fuel prices, equating to about $3 / jump, and with all we put in to maintaining our Otter jump plane in top notch condition, we've had to raise prices $1 weekends and $2 weekdays. The aircraft owner and Skydive Orange club are each cutting their income by $1, and we are raising jump prices, see licensed skydiver's prices here. Student skydiver prices are staying the same as of March, but a summer 2011 tandem and AFF price increase is likely - so JUMP NOW!.

_______________
A new batch of Sky System's Benny HELMETS  for sale at Student manifest. We can switch the helmets and liners around to make whichever color you want any size you want.

[]FREEFLY AND RELATIVE WORK LOAD ORGANIZING for licensed skydivers every will return when things get busy around May 2011 or so on Saturdays & Sundays!  

8:00 AM weekend AFF start time!
This is for skydiving students doing their actual  AFF training progression skydives, not for Tandem skydives, which are scheduled separately.

_______________
NEW CYPRES AADs
are in stock.
_______________
JUMPSUITS IN STOCK!

Standard jumpsuits in assorted sizes and colors. If you need a new jumpsuit, ask at Student manifest to see what we have in stock. This is much easier than ordering (and waiting months for) a custom suit. $240 tax included, ready to put on and jump!

(Sorry, you can't jump it till it is paid for!)


MANIFEST HELP WANTED weekends-  Email if you are interested. This involves signing in licensed skydivers, communicating with the pilot, fueler, checking jumpers' paperwork, and making sure the plane flies on time. All day weekends, somewhat flexible schedule. If you are good at fitting round pegs in square holes, Square pegs in round holes, and coordinating a changing schedule on an ever changing basis all day long while tending to a stream of customers, this job just might be for you!


AADs are mandatory at Skydive Orange. In fact they are mandatory at all leading Virginia and Washington DC / Maryland area skydiving places!
