About Virginia Skydiving Center
There are certain milestones that stick out in our lives. A first step. A first kiss. A fist time hurtling towards the Earth at incredible speeds. Virginia Skydiving Center's tandem instructors help people accomplish the latter by strapping themselves to novices and jumping out of airplanes into the open skies. From 14,000 feet in the air, the two free fall and take in a hailstone's-eye view of the terrain around Washington, DC and Virginia Beach before a two-person parachute smooths the rest of the path back toward earth.
It only takes 20–30 minutes of training to prep for that tandem experience, but Virginia Skydiving Center's videographers can preserve the fall for years to come. The initial dive can also serve as the first step an accelerated freefall program, which helps students become licensed to take on the skies all by themselves.
