State releases documents showing company involved in deadly Mokuleia aircraft crash did not have skydiving permit
The O'ahu Parachute Company, the owner of the plane that crashed and killed eleven people in Mokuleia last month did not have a skydiving permit.
Documents released by the state shows the company was not in good standing with the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs and not a registered tenant for the state land it occupied.
However, it did have a permit for a company under a different name dating back to 2010. Two weeks before the deadly crash at Dillingham Airfield the state sent a permit application for skydiving operations demanding appropriate documents and nearly $30,000 in fees.
Five days after the crash the state revoked its 2010 permit and evicted O'ahu Parachute Company from state land.
