DZ near Washington, D.C.?

Post by dash.. » Wed, 08 Mar 2000 04:00:00


Can anyone recommend a good DZ near Washington, D.C.?
I did AFF-1 at a DZ elsewhere in the country, and want
to continue with the sport, but I have recently moved
to Washington and need to find a new DZ in this area.

Any ideas?  From surfing the Web I think my first choice
would be Skydive Orange, but I would be interested in
other opinions...

Good call. Skydive Va is also a good choice for a student program.

 Orange is a good DZ; but my personal choice is Skydive DelMarVa in
Laurel (www.skydivedelmarva.com). Our AFF program and directions can be
found on our web site.
 We just recently purchased an Otter and have a King Air year round.
The Otter winters in Fla. but will be back in early April. We have an
excellent AFF staff, wide open DZ, and some of the most beautiful
scenary on the East coast. Recently added a new coaching program headed
by Bobby Cannon for the after AFF learning progression that will
dramatically increase your learning curve.
 Call us at 888-875-3540. Love to hear from you.

I would also recommend Skydive Delamrva.  Ti is a great student drop
zone with many amentities.  The jump planes are the fastest to altitude
and the instructors are top-notch.  And I should know.  The instructors
that trained me 7 years ago are still training there today.  They also
showed me how to be a great instructor as weel as a good skydiver.  As
for Bobby Cannon's level 8 (post AFF) course....You couldn't get anyone
better (except maybe Jack Jeffries himself).  Make the smart move, go
to Skydive Delmarva.  The driver is a little longer, but you will never
regret it!

Skidive Orange!

I live in DC too, and I make the short drive out there every weekend.
I finished the AFF program there the first of February, and the whole
regular group that jumps out there have been great in helping me
continue my education post-A license.

PLUS, starting this weekend, Orange has the twin otter every week!

I just finished my AFF at Westpoint Skydiving, about 2.5 hours south of DC.
Lots of people go there from the DC area.  The instruction is great, and the
people really friendly, even to us newbies!

This season we be cranking with our DZ owned King Air & Hot New Otter and
many improvement to the dropzone and our boogie and camp calendar. This is

active weekday business. We own and operate fulltime a King Air and Twin
Otter.  We are situated within 1 to 2 hours of several major metropolitan
areas and 20 to 30 minutes of several large beachside vacation resort
cities.

We are a large, wide-open USPA dropzone with on site rigging and our very
experienced full-time staff living on site. We are constantly expanding and
upgrading our facilities. We presently offer on- site camping, RV electrical
hookups and full bathroom and shower facilities. We have carpeted indoor and

If you just want to come on out and do a pre-season check on the skydiving
improvements we are making at the new operation at Laurel Airport and see
what a happening place we're`going to be this from this season
onwards...........please do. We are presently flying the King Air, our own
hot new Otter arrives back from Florida on April 3rd and will be operating
primarily for the off status skydivers all season alongside our King Air,
which we will be using primarily for our students and tandem
jumpers.....unless you'd rather jump the King Air than the Otter.

Blue ones,
Stay Safe.
