Michigan dropzone Skydive Tecumseh had intended to open its doors on April 1, but will be delayed at least two weeks, due to a dispute between the dropzone and the owners of Al Meyers Airport, where the dropzone is located. Unfortunately this is not an April Fools joke, but quite the serious matter for local and visiting jumpers.
The dropzone has operated on the airport for decades, but current owners do no seem to want skydiving to continue. DZO Franz Gerschwiler has owned the operation since 2011.
A petition has been started on Change.org asking Andrew Aalto, president of Al Meyers Airport Corporation to allow the business to remain open at present location. If you would like to lend a hand, click for more information or to add your signature.
