User shall pay Operator for said expenses within 15 days of receipt of the invoice and bill therefor. User shall include with each payment any federal transportation excise tax due with respect to such payment, and Operator shall be responsible for collecting, reporting and remitting such tax to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.

4. User will provide Operator with requests for flight time and proposed flight schedules as far in advance of any given flight as possible. Requests for flight time and proposed flight schedules shall be made in compliance with Operator’s scheduling procedures.

6. Operator shall be solely responsible for securing maintenance, preventive maintenance and required or otherwise necessary inspections on the Aircraft, and shall take such requirements into account in scheduling the Aircraft.

The pilot in command shall have final and complete authority to cancel any flight for any reason or condition which in his judgment would compromise the safety of the flight.

7. In accordance with applicable FARs, the flight crew will exercise all of its duties and responsibilities in regard to the safety of each flight conducted hereunder. User specifically agrees that the pilot in command, in his sole discretion, may terminate any flight, refuse to

The parties agree that Operator shall not be liable for delay or failure to furnish the Aircraft and crew member pursuant to this Agreement for any reason or no reason at all.

8. Operator will provide such additional insurance coverage as User shall request or require; provided, however, that the cost of such additional insurance shall be borne by User as set forth in paragraph 2(d) hereof.

9. User warrants that:

 

  (a)

He will not use the Aircraft for the purposes of providing transportation for passengers or cargo in air commerce for compensation or hire; and
