place for someone to skydive if they are from the Washington,
DC area, is at Skydive Orange in Orange Virginia, because you will be
jumping from this amazing jump plane instead of from a little 1950's vintage
single engine piston plane like other skydiving places use that only grudgingly
holds 4 skydivers!

Skydiving Wind Tunnel Instruction -click for the video by Lambert -Demo
Wind tunnel flying and coaching has erupted as one of the fastest-growing disciplines in skydiving training. Gone are the old days of having to wear baggy suits on a narrow column of air to only approximate freefall conditions; todayís wind tunnels such as the one in Raeford, North Carolina (currently tied for the worldís largest civilian wind tunnel: www.paracletexp.com) offer an exact simulation of freefall conditions to allow skydivers with zero to 20,000 jumps to train at an advanced level. As a result, itís now possible to get 30-60 skydives worth of freefall (or more, for the truly hardcore) over the course of a few hours, which takes anyoneís learning curve to an unprecedented level. And by the minute, coached tunnel time is far cheaper than coached freefall time, which only makes the opportunity that much sweeter.
As a tunnel coach, I offer belly-flying instruction in Paraclete XPís gigantic 16-foot indoor wind tunnel, mostly focusing on skills for jumpers with zero to 200 jumps and people working toward their coach or AFF instructor rating. I have more than 19 years of skydiving experience, including 13 years as an instructor and seven years of tunnel flying. I am also very familiar with Paracleteís tunnel, having been fortunate enough to fly in it before it was even open to the public.
While itís true that Paraclete is one of the more expensive tunnels out there, since it is one of the biggest in operation and not too far from Orange, itís well worth it. And since itís also still a good bit cheaper than coached freefall and because you can cram in many skydives worth of flying in a short period of time, your accelerated learning curve will be proof in itself that you made a wise investment in your skydiving talents.

Although you might like to make your first Skydive in Washington DC, and it indeed would be extraordinary, civilian aircraft aren't allowed to fly that close to DC. In fact, if you were to fly or skydive close enough to get much of a view of the Capitol or Washington Monument, you'd probably get shot down. However, the views of the Northern Virginia countryside here at Skydive Orange are as pleasant as any you're likely to find, with the Mountains to the West, the town of Orange, to the south, Lake Anna to the East, and yes, indeed you can often (but not always) see the Potomac River while skydiving with us here in Orange, Virginia.
