The Buyer will be entitled to repair such Warranted Parts:


  - [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] The Buyer's notification will include sufficient detail regarding the defect, estimated labor hours and material to allow the Seller to ascertain the reasonableness of the estimate.

Furthermore, the Seller will have the right to have a Seller Representative present during the disassembly, inspection and testing of any Warranted Part claimed to be defective, subject to such presence being practical and not unduly delaying the repair.


12.1.7.4 In-house Warranty Claim Substantiation

Claims for In-house Warranty credit will be filed within the time period set forth in 12.1.5 (ii) and will contain the same information as that required for Warranty Claims under Clause 12.1.6.5 and in addition will include:


  (a) a report of technical findings with respect to the defect,

  (e) total claim value.

12.1.7.5 Credit

The Buyer's sole remedy and the Seller's sole obligation and liability with respect to In-house Warranty Claims will be the warranty credit issued to the Buyer in an amount equal to the reasonable direct labor costs expended in performing the repair of a Warranted Part and to the direct costs of materials incorporated in such repair, determined as set forth below:


  (i) to determine direct labor costs, only man-hours spent on [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] disassembly, inspection, repair, reassembly, final inspection and test of the Warranted Part [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] will be counted. Any man-hours required for maintenance work concurrently being carried out on the affected Aircraft or the Warranted Part will not be included.


  (ii) The man-hours counted as set forth above will be multiplied by an agreed labor rate of [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] ("In-house Warranty Labor Rate"), which is deemed to represent the Buyer's composite labor rate meaning the average hourly rate (excluding all fringe benefits, premium time allowances, social security charges, business taxes and the like) paid to the Buyer's employees whose jobs are directly related to the performance of the repair.

The In-house Warranty Labor Rate is subject to annual adjustment by multiplication by the ratio ECIn/ECIb.

  (iii) Direct material costs are determined by the prices at which the Buyer acquired such material, excluding any parts and materials used for overhaul and as may be furnished by the Seller at no charge.

12.1.7.6 Limitation

The Buyer will in no event be credited for repair costs (including labor and material) for any Warranted Part in excess of [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] of the Seller's current catalogue price for a replacement of such defective Warranted Part.


12.1.7.7 Scrapped Material

The Buyer will retain any defective Warranted Part beyond economic repair and any defective part removed from a Warranted Part during repair for a period of either [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] after the date of completion of the repair or [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] after submission of a claim for In-house Warranty credit relating thereto, whichever is longer, and during such period such parts will be returned to the Seller within [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] of receipt of the Seller's request to that effect.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Buyer may scrap any such defective parts, which are beyond economic repair and not required for technical evaluation locally, with the agreement of the Seller Representative(s) at any time.

[CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

If a defect is attributable to a defective repair or replacement by the Buyer, a Warranty Claim with respect to such defect will be rejected, notwithstanding any subsequent correction or repair, and will immediately terminate the remaining warranties under this Clause 12.1 in respect of the affected Warranted Part.


12.1.10 Accepted Industry Standard Practices Normal Wear and Tear

The Buyer's rights under this Clause 12.1 with respect to any Warranted Part are subject to such Warranted Part being maintained, overhauled, repaired and operated in accordance with accepted industry standard practices, all Technical Data and any other instructions issued by the Seller, the Suppliers and the Propulsion System Manufacturer with respect to such Warranted Part and all applicable rules, regulations and directives of the relevant Aviation Authorities with respect to such Warranted Part.

12.2.4.3 Except as otherwise provided for in this Clause 12.2, any claim under the Seller Service Life Policy will be administered as provided for in, and will be subject to the terms and conditions of, Clause 12.1.6.

12.2.4.4 In the event of the Seller having issued a modification applicable to an Aircraft, the purpose of which is to avoid a Failure, the Seller may elect to supply the necessary modification kit free of charge to the Buyer or under a pro rata formula established by the Seller.

12.2.4.5

THE SELLER SERVICE LIFE POLICY IS NEITHER A WARRANTY, PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE, NOR AN AGREEMENT TO MODIFY ANY AIRCRAFT OR AIRFRAME COMPONENTS TO CONFORM TO NEW DEVELOPMENTS OCCURRING IN THE STATE OF AIRFRAME DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING ART.

THE BUYER'S SOLE REMEDY AND RELIEF FOR THE NON-PERFORMANCE OF ANY OBLIGATION OR LIABILITY OF THE SELLER ARISING UNDER OR BY VIRTUE OF THE SELLER SERVICE LIFE POLICY WILL BE [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT THE BUYER REASONABLY EXPENDS IN PROCURING A CORRECTION OR REPLACEMENT FOR ANY ITEM THAT IS THE SUBJECT OF A FAILURE COVERED BY THE SELLER SERVICE LIFE POLICY AND TO WHICH SUCH

12.3 Supplier Warranties and Service Life Policies

Prior to or at Delivery of the first Aircraft, the Seller will provide the Buyer, in accordance with the provisions of Clause 17, with the warranties and, where applicable, service life policies that the Seller has obtained for Supplier Parts pursuant to the Supplier Product Support Agreements. The Seller authorizes the Buyer to enforce directly against all Suppliers all such warranties and service life policies to the fullest extent permitted by the applicable Supplier Product Support Agreement.

[CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]


12.3.1 Definitions

12.3.1.1 "Supplier" means any supplier of Supplier Parts.

12.3.1.2 "Supplier Part" means any component, equipment, accessory or part installed in an Aircraft at the time of Delivery thereof and for which there exists a Supplier Product Support Agreement. For the sake of clarity, the Propulsion System and Buyer Furnished Equipment and other equipment selected by the Buyer to be supplied by suppliers with whom the Seller has no existing enforceable warranty agreements are not Supplier Parts.

12.3.1.3 "Supplier Product Support Agreements" means agreements between the Seller and Suppliers, as described in Clause 17.1.2, containing enforceable and transferable warranties and, in the case of landing gear suppliers, service life policies for selected structural landing gear elements.

12.3.2 Supplier's Default

12.3.2.1 In the event that any Supplier, under any standard warranty obtained by the Seller in a Supplier Product Support Agreement, defaults in the performance of any obligation with respect thereto and subject to (i) the Buyer using its commercially reasonable efforts to enforce its rights under such Supplier Product Support Agreement and (ii) the Buyer submitting in reasonable time to the Seller reasonable evidence that such default has occurred, then Clause 12.1 will apply to the extent the same would have been applicable had such Supplier Part been a Warranted Part, except that the Supplier's warranty period as indicated in the Supplier Product Support Agreement will apply.

12.3.2.2 In the event that any Supplier, under any Supplier service life policy obtained by the Seller in a Supplier Product Support Agreement, defaults in the performance of any obligation with respect thereto and subject to (i) the Buyer using its commercially reasonable efforts to enforce its rights under such Supplier Product Support Agreement and (ii) the Buyer submitting in reasonable time to the Seller reasonable evidence that such default has occurred, then Clause 12.2 will apply as if such Supplier Part was an Item, except that the Supplier's service life policy period as indicated in the Supplier Product Support Agreement will apply.


12.3.2.3 At the Seller's request, the Buyer will assign to the Seller, and the Seller will be subrogated to, all of the Buyer's rights against the relevant Supplier with respect to and arising by reason of such default and will provide reasonable assistance to enable the Seller to enforce the rights so assigned.

12.4 Interface Commitment

12.4.1 Interface Problem

If the Warranty Beneficiary experiences any technical problem in the operation of an Aircraft or its systems due to a malfunction, the cause of which, after due and reasonable investigation, is not readily identifiable by the Warranty Beneficiary but which the Warranty Beneficiary reasonably believes to be attributable to the design characteristics of one or more components of such Aircraft ("Interface Problem"), the Seller will, if so requested by the Warranty Beneficiary, and without additional charge to the Warranty Beneficiary, promptly conduct or have conducted an investigation and analysis of such problem to determine, if possible, the cause or causes of the problem and to recommend such corrective action as may be feasible. The Warranty Beneficiary will furnish to the Seller all data and information in the Warranty Beneficiary's possession reasonably relevant to the Interface Problem and will reasonably cooperate with the Seller in the conduct of the Seller's investigations and such tests as may be required.

At the conclusion of such investigation, the Seller will promptly advise the Warranty Beneficiary in writing of the Seller's opinion as to the cause or causes of the Interface Problem and the Seller's recommendations as to corrective action.


12.4.2 Seller's Responsibility

If the Seller determines that the Interface Problem is primarily attributable to the design of a Warranted Part, the Seller will, if so requested by the Warranty Beneficiary and pursuant to the terms and conditions of Clause 12.1, correct the design of such Warranted Part to the extent of the Seller's obligation as defined in Clause 12.1.


12.4.3 Supplier's Responsibility

If the Seller determines that the Interface Problem is primarily attributable to the design of any Supplier Part, the Seller will, if so requested by the Warranty Beneficiary, reasonably assist the Warranty Beneficiary in processing any warranty claim the Warranty Beneficiary may have against the Supplier. The Seller will also take whatever reasonable action is permitted by its contracts with such Supplier in an effort to obtain a correction of the Interface Problem acceptable to the Warranty Beneficiary. If the Supplier fails within a reasonable period of time to take appropriate action on the Seller's recommendation as to the necessary corrective action and the Warranty Beneficiary submits to the Seller, within a reasonable period of time, proof of such failure, then the Seller will take action in accordance with the provisions of Clause 12.3


12.4.4 Joint Responsibility

If the Seller determines that the Interface Problem is attributable partially to the design of a Warranted Part and partially to the design of any Supplier Part, the Seller will, if so requested by the Warranty Beneficiary, seek a solution to the Interface Problem through cooperative efforts of the Seller and any Supplier involved.


The Seller will promptly advise the Warranty Beneficiary of such corrective action as may be proposed by the Seller and any such Supplier. Such proposal will be consistent with any then existing obligations of the Seller hereunder and of any such Supplier towards the Warranty Beneficiary. Such corrective action, unless reasonably rejected by the Warranty Beneficiary, will constitute full satisfaction of any claim the Warranty Beneficiary may have against either the Seller or any such Supplier with respect to such Interface Problem.


12.4.5 General

12.4.5.1 All requests under this Clause 12.4 will be directed to both the Seller and the affected Supplier.

12.4.5.2 Except as specifically set forth in this Clause 12.4, this Clause will not be deemed to impose on the Seller any obligations not expressly set forth elsewhere in this Agreement.

12.4.5.3 All reports, recommendations, data and other documents furnished by the Seller to the Warranty Beneficiary pursuant to this Clause 12.4 will be deemed to be delivered under this Agreement and will be subject to the terms, covenants and conditions set forth in this Clause 12 and in Clause 22.11.

THE WARRANTIES AND SELLER SERVICE LIFE POLICY PROVIDED BY THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT BE EXTENDED, ALTERED OR VARIED EXCEPT BY A WRITTEN INSTRUMENT EXECUTED AND DELIVERED BY THE SELLER AND THE BUYER. IN THE EVENT THAT ANY PROVISION OF THIS CLAUSE 12 SHOULD FOR ANY REASON BE HELD UNLAWFUL, OR OTHERWISE UNENFORCEABLE, THE REMAINDER OF THIS CLAUSE 12 WILL REMAIN IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT.

FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS CLAUSE 12.5, THE "SELLER" WILL BE UNDERSTOOD TO INCLUDE THE SELLER AND ANY OF ITS SUPPLIERS, SUBCONTRACTORS, AND AFFILIATES.


12.6 Duplicate Remedies

The remedies provided to the Buyer under Clause 12.1 and Clause 12.2 as to any defect in respect of any Aircraft or any part thereof are mutually exclusive and not cumulative. The Buyer will be entitled to the remedy that provides the maximum benefit to it, as the Buyer may elect, pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Clause 12 for any particular defect for which remedies are provided under this Clause 12; provided, however, that the Buyer will not be entitled to elect a remedy under both Clause 12.1 and Clause 12.2 for the same defect. The Buyer's rights and remedies herein for the nonperformance of any obligations or liabilities of the Seller arising under these warranties will be in monetary damages limited to the amount the Buyer expends in procuring a correction or replacement for any covered part subject to a defect or nonperformance covered by this Clause 12, and the Buyer will not have any right to require specific performance by the Seller.


12.7 Negotiated Agreement

The Buyer specifically recognizes that:


  (i) the Specifications have been agreed upon after careful consideration by the Buyer using its judgment as a professional operator of aircraft used in public transportation and as such is a professional within the same industry as the Seller;

  (ii) this Agreement, and in particular this Clause 12, has been the subject of discussion and negotiation and is fully understood by the Buyer; and

  (iii) the price of the Aircraft and the other mutual agreements of the Buyer set forth in this Agreement were arrived at in consideration of, inter alia, the provisions of this Clause 12, specifically including the waiver, release and renunciation by the Buyer set forth in Clause 12.5.

12.8 Disclosure to Third Party Entity

In the event of the Buyer intending to designate a third party entity (a "Third Party Entity") to administer this Clause 12, the Buyer will notify the Seller of such intention prior to any disclosure of this Clause to the selected Third Party Entity and will cause such Third Party Entity to enter into a confidentiality agreement and or any other relevant documentation with the Seller solely for the purpose of administrating this Clause 12.
