Skydiving Record Attempts in Virginia

There are many types of Skydiving Record Attempts that take place every year all over the country. The type of records vary greatly. The are records for the largest amount of skydivers at night, the longest wing suit dive and of course for the largest skydiver formation in free fall.

The largest formation is where a group of skydivers leave the plane and attempt to all hold hands in free fall. This is one of the most difficult type of records to attempt for a variety of reasons. This type of jump requires usually 4 to 5 large aircraft that are capable of reaching altitudes of up to 18,000 feet. They must also be able to contain oxygen due to being at high altitude for a prolong time.
The Virginia State record is currently 87 skydivers linked up in free fall at the same time. This record was completed at our West Point location in 2004. No Limits Skydiving is proud to operate its business out of the same airport this record was set at.
The most difficult item is making sure you have the best skydivers possible to be a part of these records. Our staff from No Limits Skydiving was on that State Record.

In 2016 skydivers from all over the country attempted to set a new record of 108 skydivers linked up. The record attempt was unsuccessful but came very close. The owner of No limits Skydiving was a part of this skydive also. Since he was a member of the record in 2004 he wanted to make sure he was a part of the new attempt.
Skydiving is a sport with many different types of jumps. No Limits Skydiving excels at Tandem Skydiving and taking people on their first jump from a perfectly good airplane. We hope to see you at either of our locations this year for your adventure of a lifetime!!

Skydiving in Richmond VA

No Limits Skydiving does many skydiving demo shows and one of our favorite is to jump into the Flying Squirrels Baseball Games. The Squirrels are Richmond Virginia’s Double A Baseball Team. On July 4th, staff members of No Limits Skydiving brought in the game ball along with the American Flag to start the game.
The owner of No Limits Skydiving lives in Richmond, VA so its always a special treat to make a jump over the city. Nothing beats being in free fall and being able to see your house.
We have also performed a skydiving show for the Redskins Training Camp opening day. Their training camp is located right in the center of the city near the Children’s Museum. When we skydived into the event, we were able to meet Redskins Hall of Fame member Joe Theisman.

Richmond, Va is only 45 minutes from our West Point location so we of course are a natural fit for anyone in the vicinity who wants to make a skydive. We have taken thousands of people from Richmond on their Tandem Skydive. Its always a thrill to be out somewhere in the city and run into someone who remembers you as being their Tandem Instructor.

We are open 7 days a week, so if you are from Richmond and looking to make a Tandem Skydive, call us anytime to make a reservation or ask a question. Hope to see you soon!
