Skydive Myrtle Beach Takes County Councilmen To Court

Company Owner Is Suing Individual Members Of The Council For Violating Constitutional Rights

The owner of Skydive Myrtle Beach is suing the members of the Horry County Council for alleged violations of his constitutional rights under the 14th Amendment.

Aaron Holly, the owner of Skydive Myrtle Beach, hold in his 160-page complaint that the council, working with the FAA, wrongfully closed his business by claiming more than 100 violations against it, according to a report from myrtlebeachsc.com. The complaint holds that no investigation has been conducted, and there is no evidence at all of any alleged violations. He also holds that he has not been charged with violating any local ordinances, nor paid any fines or penalties associated with the alleged violations.

Each alleged violations would have required an FAA investigation and carried fines from the county and the FAA. There is no documentation of any fines levied against Holly or Skydive Myrtle Beach.

The alleged violations include landing zone violations on days when the company's airplanes were unable to fly due to weather. Holly holds that no violations could have occurred on those days because his planes never left the ground.

Holly has sued Horry County Council Chairman Mark Lazarus, along with the Horry County Department of Airports and several county employees. Several FAA inspectors have also been named as defendants in the suit.
