Skydive Orange's first plane-to-sky plunge happened in 1977, and the business has been safely guiding students through the skies ever since. The coaches and instructors here are all USPA-rated, and offer tandem skydiving for beginners as well as Accelerated Freefall programs for advanced skydivers. Whatever their level of experience, students learn the fundamentals inside of air conditioned classrooms before boarding the plane, and leaping from heights up to 2.5 miles. Once the parachute deploys, divers gracefully coast to a designated zone to the sound of applause from watching family members and the boos of jealous penguins situated on nearby bleachers. Jumps are commemorated with a certificate and logbook, and Skydive Orange also has a videographer on staff who can film the experience for skydivers who want video documentation of their leap.
