Grantor shall, whenever requested, advise Lender of the exact location of the Collateral.

Maintain and keep the Collateral in as good condition and repair as it is on the date of this Agreement, ordinary wear and tear excepted;
Maintain and the Aircraft in airworthy condition in accordance with the requirements of the Lease and each of the manufacturers’ manuals and mandatory service bulletins and each of the manufacturers’ non‑mandatory service bulletins which relate to airworthiness, and in compliance with all applicable aviation laws and regulations pursuant to which it may be operated (for example, and without limitation, all requirements of Parts 91 and 121 of FAA Regulations, or all applicable EASA
Loan No.: 20007961462 TRUSTEE AIRCRAFT SECURITY AGREEMENT Page 6
airworthiness regulations, as applicable based on the jurisdiction of the Aircraft’s registration), the compliance date of which shall occur while this Agreement is in effect;
Replace in or on the Airframe any and all Engines, parts, appliances, instruments or accessories which may be worn out, lost, destroyed or otherwise rendered unfit for use;
Obtain all required inspections of the Aircraft and licensing or re‑licensing of the Aircraft in accordance with all applicable governmental requirements. Grantor shall at all times cause the Aircraft to have on board and in a conspicuous location a current Certificate of Airworthiness; and
Cause all inspections, maintenance, modifications, repairs, and overhauls of the Aircraft (including those performed on the Airframe, the Engines or any components, appliances, accessories, instruments, or equipment) to be performed only by personnel authorized to perform such services by the FAA or other aviation authority having jurisdiction.
If any Engine, component, appliance, accessory, instrument, equipment or part of the Aircraft shall reach such a condition as to require overhaul, repair or replacement, for any cause whatever, in order to comply with the standards for maintenance and other provisions set forth in this Agreement and the Lease, Grantor may install, or cause Lessee to install, temporary replacements of the same type pending overhaul or repair of the unsatisfactory item, so long as such temporary replacements are fit for operational use within applicable regulations and standards and Grantor retains unencumbered title to any and all items temporarily removed, or make permanent replacements of the same type so long as such permanent replacements are fit for operational use within applicable regulations and standards and Grantor complies, or causes Lessee to comply, with the following requirements (subject to the provisions of the Lease):
Lender is not divested of its security interest in and lien upon any item removed from the Aircraft and no such removed item becomes subject to the lien or claim of any other person, unless and until such item is replaced by an item of the type and condition required by this Agreement, title to which, upon its being installed or attached to the Airframe, is validly vested in Grantor, free and clear of all liens and claims, of every kind or nature, of all persons other than Lender;
Grantor’s title to every substituted item shall immediately be and become subject to the security interests and liens of Lender and each of the provisions of this Agreement, and each such item shall remain so encumbered unless it is, in turn, replaced by a substitute item in the manner permitted in this Agreement; and
If an item is removed from the Aircraft and replaced in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement, and if the substituted item satisfies the requirements of this Agreement, including the terms and conditions above, then the item which is removed shall thereupon be free and clear of the security interests and liens of Lender. In the event that any Engine, component, appliance, accessory, instrument, equipment or part is installed upon the Airframe, and is not in substitution for or in replacement of an existing item, such additional item shall be considered as an accession to the Airframe.
TAXES, ASSESSMENTS AND LIENS. Grantor will pay when due all taxes, assessments and liens upon the Collateral, its use or operation, upon this Agreement, or upon the Loan Documents to the extent applicable to the Aircraft. Grantor may withhold any such payment or may elect to contest any lien if Grantor is in good faith conducting an appropriate proceeding to contest the obligation to pay and so long as Lender’s interest in the Collateral is not jeopardized in Lender’s sole opinion. If the Collateral is subjected to a lien which is not d
Loan No.: 20007961462 TRUSTEE AIRCRAFT SECURITY AGREEMENT Page 7
ischarged within fifteen (15) days, Grantor shall deposit with Lender cash, a sufficient corporate surety bond or other security satisfactory to Lender in an amount adequate to provide for the discharge of the lien plus any interest, costs or other charges that could accrue as a result of foreclosure or sale of the Collateral. In any contest Grantor shall defend itself and Lender and shall satisfy any final adverse judgment before enforcement against the Collateral. Grantor shall name Lender as an additional obligee under any surety bond furnished in the contest proceedings.
GOVERNMENTAL COMPLIANCE. Grantor shall comply promptly with all applicable laws, ordinances and regulations of the FAA and/or all other governmental authorities applicable to the use, operation, maintenance, overhauling or condition of the Collateral. Grantor may contest in good faith any such law, ordinance or regulation and withhold compliance during any proceeding, including appropriate appeals, so long as Lender’s interest in the Collateral, in Lender’s opinion, is not jeopardized. Without limiting the foregoing, Grantor agrees that at no time during the effectiveness of this Agreement shall the Collateral be operated in, located in, or relocated to, any jurisdiction, unless the Cape Town Convention or some comparable treaty, rules and regulations satisfactory to Lender shall be in effect in such jurisdiction and any notices, financing statements, documents, or instruments necessary or required, in the opinion of Lender, to be filed in such jurisdiction shall have been filed and file stamped copies thereof shall have been furnished to Lender. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at no time shall the Collateral be operated in or over any area which may expose Lender to any penalty, fine, sanction or other liability, whether civil or criminal, under any applicable law, rule, treaty or convention; nor may the Collateral be used in any manner which is or may be declared to be illegal and which may thereby render the Collateral liable to confiscation, seizure, detention or destruction.
Grantor shall procure and maintain at all times all risks insurance on the Collateral, including without limitation fire, theft, liability and hull insurance, and such other insurance as Lender may require with respect to the Collateral, in form, amounts, coverages and basis reasonably acceptable to Lender and issued by a company or companies reasonably acceptable to Lender. Grantor shall further provide and maintain, at its sole cost and expense or at the sole cost and expense of Lessee, comprehensive public liability insurance, naming both Grantor and Lender as parties insured, protecting against claims for bodily injury, death and/or property damage arising out of the use, ownership, possession, operation and condition of the Aircraft, and further containing a broad form contractual liability endorsement covering Grantor’s obligations to indemnify Lender as provided under this Agreement. Such policies of insurance must also contain a provision, in form and substance acceptable to Lender, prohibiting cancellation or the alteration of such insurance without at least ten (10) days prior written notice to Lender of such intended cancellation or alteration. Such insurance policies also shall include an endorsement providing that coverage in favor of Lender will not be impaired in any way by any act, omission or default of Grantor or any other person. Grantor agrees to provide Lender with copies of such policies of insurance. Grantor, upon request of Lender, will deliver to Lender from time to time the policies or certificates of insurance in form satisfactory to Lender. In connection with all policies covering assets in which Lender holds or is offered a security interest for the Indebtedness, Grantor will provide Lender with such lender’s loss payable or other endorsements as Lender may require. Grantor shall not use or permit the Collateral to be used in any manner or for any purpose excepted from or contrary to the requirements of any insurance policy or policies required to be carried and maintained under this Agreement or for any purpose excepted or exempted from or contrary to the insurance policies, nor shall Grantor do any other act or permit anything to be done which could reasonably be expected to invalidate or limit any such insurance policy or policies.
Grantor shall promptly notify Lender of any loss or damage to the Collateral, whether or not such casualty or loss is covered by insurance. Lender may make proof of loss if Grantor fails to do so withi
Loan No.: 20007961462 TRUSTEE AIRCRAFT SECURITY AGREEMENT Page 8
n fifteen (15) days of the casualty. All proceeds of any insurance on the Collateral, including accrued proceeds thereon, shall be held by Lender as part of the Collateral. If Lender consents to repair or replacement of the damaged or destroyed Collateral, Lender shall, upon satisfactory proof of expenditure, pay or reimburse Grantor from the proceeds for the reasonable cost of repair or restoration. If Lender does not consent to repair or replacement of the Collateral, Lender shall retain a sufficient amount of the proceeds to pay all of the Indebtedness, and shall pay the balance to Grantor. Any proceeds which have not been disbursed within six (6) months after their receipt and which Grantor has not committed to the repair or restoration of the Collateral shall be used to prepay the Indebtedness.
Grantor, upon request of Lender, shall furnish to Lender reports on each existing policy of insurance showing such information as Lender may reasonably request including the following: (1) the name of the insurer; (2) the risks insured; (3) the amount of the policy; (4) the property insured; (5) the then current value on the basis of which insurance has been obtained and the manner of determining that value; and (6) the expiration date of the policy. In addition, Grantor shall upon request by Lender (however not more often than annually) have an independent appraiser satisfactory to Lender determine, as applicable, the cash value or replacement cost of the Collateral.
PRIOR ENCUMBRANCES. To the extent applicable, Grantor shall fully and timely perform any and all of Grantor’s obligations under any prior Encumbrances affecting the Collateral. Without limiting the foregoing, Grantor shall not commit or permit to exist any breach of or default under any such prior Encumbrances. Grantor shall further promptly notify Lender in writing upon the occurrence of any event or circumstances that would, or that might, result in a breach of or default under any such prior Encumbrance. Grantor shall further not modify or extend any of the terms of any prior Encumbrance or any indebtedness secured thereby, or request or obtain any additional loans or other extensions of credit from any third party creditor or creditors whenever such additional loan advances or other extensions of credit may be directly or indirectly secured, whether by cross‑collateralization or otherwise, by the Collateral, or any part or parts thereof, with possible preference and priority over the lien of this Agreement.
NOTICE OF ENCUMBRANCES AND EVENTS OF DEFAULT. Grantor shall immediately notify Lender in writing upon the filing of any attachment, judicial process, or claim relating to the Collateral. Grantor additionally agrees to immediately notify Lender in writing upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, or event that with the passage of time, failure to cure, or giving of notice, may result in an Event of Default under any of Grantor’s obligations that may be secured by any presently existing or future Encumbrance, or that may result in an encumbrance affecting the Collateral, or should the Collateral be seized or attached or levied upon, or threatened by seizure or attachment or levy, by any person other than Lender.
POSSESSION; QUIET ENJOYMENT. Until default, Grantor shall have the possession and beneficial use of the Collateral and may use it in any lawful manner not inconsistent with this Agreement or the Loan Documents. Lender confirms that neither it nor any person lawfully claiming through it will interfere with the quiet enjoyment and use of the Aircraft by Lessee throughout the Lease as long as no “Event of Default” (as defined in the Lease) has occurred and is continuing.
LENDER’S EXPENDITURES. If any action or proceeding is commenced that would materially affect Lender’s interest in the Collateral or if Grantor fails to comply with any provision of this Agreement or any Loan Documents, including but not limited to Grantor’s failure to discharge or pay when due any amounts Grantor is required to discharge or pay under this Agreement or any Loan Documents, Lender on Grantor’s behalf may (but shall not be obligated to) take any action that Lender deems appropriate, including but not limited to discharging or paying all taxes, liens, security interests, encumbrances and other claims, at any time levied or placed on the Collateral and paying all costs for insuring, maintaining and preserving the Collateral. All s
Loan No.: 20007961462 TRUSTEE AIRCRAFT SECURITY AGREEMENT Page 9
uch expenditures incurred or paid by Lender for such purposes will then bear interest at the rate charged under the Note from the date incurred or paid by Lender to the date of repayment by Grantor. All such expenses will become a part of the Indebtedness and, at Lender’s option, will (A) be payable on demand; (B) be added to the balance of the Note and be apportioned among and be payable with any installment payments to become due during either (1) the term of any applicable insurance policy; or (2) the remaining term of the Note; or (C) be treated as a balloon payment which will be due and payable at the Note’s maturity. The Agreement also will secure payment of these amounts. Such right shall be in addition to all other rights and remedies to which Lender may be entitled upon Default.
DEFAULT. Each of the following shall constitute an Event of Default under this Agreement:
Payment Default. Borrower fails to make any payment when due under the Indebtedness.
Other Defaults. Borrower or Grantor fails to comply with or to perform any other term, obligation, covenant or condition contained in this Agreement or in any of the Loan Documents or to comply with or perform any term, obligation, covenant or condition contained in any other agreement between Lender and Borrower or Grantor.
Default in Favor of Third Parties. Borrower, any guarantor or Grantor defaults under any loan, extension of credit, security agreement, purchase or sales agreement, or any other agreement, in favor of any other creditor or person that may materially affect any of Borrower’s, any guarantor’s or Grantor’s property or ability to perform their respective obligations under this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents.
False Statements. Any warranty, representation or statement made or furnished to Lender by Borrower or Grantor or on Borrower’s or Grantor’s behalf under this Agreement or the Loan Documents is false or misleading in any material respect, or becomes so, regardless of when made.
Defective Collateralization. This Agreement or any of the Loan Documents ceases to be in full force and effect (including failure of any collateral document to create a valid and perfected security interest or lien) at any time and for any reason.
Insolvency. The dissolution of Borrower or Grantor (regardless of whether election to continue is made) or any other termination of Borrower’s or Grantor’s existence as a going concern, the insolvency of Borrower or Grantor, the appointment of a receiver for any part of Borrower’s or Grantor’s property, any assignment for the benefit of creditors, any type of creditor workout, or the commencement of any proceeding under any bankruptcy or insolvency laws by or against Borrower or Grantor.
Creditor or Forfeiture Proceedings. Commencement of foreclosure or forfeiture proceedings, whether by judicial proceeding, self‑help, repossession or any other method, by any creditor of Borrower or Grantor or by any governmental agency against any collateral securing the Indebtedness. This includes a garnishment of any of Borrower’s or Grantor’s accounts, including deposit accounts, with Lender. However, this Event of Default shall not apply if there is a good faith dispute by Borrower or Grantor as to the validity or reasonableness of the claim which is the basis of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and if Borrower or Grantor gives Lender written notice of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and deposits with Lender monies or a surety bond for the creditor or forfeiture proceeding, in an amount determined by Lender, in its sole discretion, as being an adequate reserve or bond for the dispute.
Events Affecting Guarantor. Any of the preceding events occurs with respect to any Guarantor of any of the Indebtedness or Guarantor dies or becomes incompetent or revokes or disputes the validity of, or liability under, any Guaranty of the Indebtedness
Loan No.: 20007961462 TRUSTEE AIRCRAFT SECURITY AGREEMENT Page 10
Adverse Change. A material adverse change occurs in Borrower’s or Grantor’s financial condition, or Lender believes the prospect of payment or performance of the Indebtedness is impaired.
CURE. If any default, other than a default in payment, is curable and if Borrower or Grantor has not been given a notice of a breach of the same provision of this Agreement within the preceding twelve (12) months, it may be cured if Borrower or Grantor, as the case may be, after Lender sends written notice demanding cure of such default: (1) cures the default within fifteen (15) days; or (2) if the cure requires more than fifteen (15) days, immediately initiates steps which Lender deems in Lender’s sole discretion to be sufficient to cure the default and thereafter continues and completes all reasonable and necessary steps sufficient to produce compliance as soon as reasonably practical.
RIGHTS AND REMEDIES ON DEFAULT. If an Event of Default occurs under this Agreement, at any time thereafter, Lender shall have all the rights of a secured party under the Wisconsin Uniform Commercial Code. In addition, and without limitation, Lender may exercise any one or more of the following rights and remedies:
Accelerate Indebtedness. Lender may declare the entire Indebtedness, including any prepayment penalty which Borrower would be required to pay, immediately due and payable, without notice of any kind to Borrower or Grantor.
Assemble Collateral. Lender may require Grantor to deliver to Lender all or any portion of the Collateral and any and all certificates of title and other documents relating to the Collateral. Lender may require Grantor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Lender at a place to be designated by Lender. Lender also shall have full power to enter upon the property of Grantor to take possession of and remove the Collateral. If the Collateral contains other goods not covered by this Agreement at the time of repossession, Grantor agrees Lender may take such other goods, provided that Lender makes reasonable efforts to return them to Grantor after repossession.
Sell the Collateral. Lender shall have full power to sell, lease, transfer, or otherwise deal with the Collateral or proceeds thereof in Lender’s own name or that of Grantor. Lender may sell the Collateral at public auction or private sale. Unless the Collateral threatens to decline speedily in value or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, Lender will give Grantor, and other persons as required by law, reasonable notice of the time and place of any public sale, or the time after which any private sale or any other disposition of the Collateral is to be made. However, no notice need be provided to any person who, after Event of Default occurs, enters into and authenticates an agreement waiving that person’s right to notification of sale. The requirements of reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is given at least ten (10) days before the time of the sale or disposition. All expenses relating to the disposition of the Collateral, including without limitation the expenses of retaking, holding, insuring, preparing for sale and selling the Collateral, shall become a part of the Indebtedness secured by this Agreement and shall be payable on demand, with interest at the Note rate from date of expenditure until repaid.
Appoint Receiver. Lender shall have the right to have a receiver appointed to take possession of all or any part of the Collateral, with the power to protect and preserve the Collateral, to operate the Collateral preceding foreclosure or sale, and to collect the rents from the Collateral and apply the proceeds, over and above the cost of the receivership, against the Indebtedness or as the court may direct. The receiver may serve without bond if permitted by law. Lender’s right to the appointment of a receiver shall exist whether or not the apparent value of the Collateral exceeds the Indebtedness by a substantial amount. Employment by Lender shall not disqualify a person from serving as a receiver.

Obtain Deficiency. If Lender chooses to sell any or all of the Collateral, Lender may obtain a judgment against Borrower for any deficiency remaining on the Indebtedness due to Lender after application of all amounts received from the exercise of the rights provided in this Agreement.
Other Rights and Remedies. Lender shall have all the rights and remedies of a secured creditor under the provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code, as may be amended from time to time, and the Cape Town Convention, including Articles 8, 9, 10 and 13 of the Convention.
De‑Registration. Lender may exercise the Irrevocable De‑Registration and Export Request Authorization, which shall be executed and delivered to Lender upon the effectiveness of this Agreement, the form of which is provided in Exhibit A hereto, without such act waiving or reducing the Indebtedness.
Remedies Non‑exclusive. Except as may be prohibited by applicable law, all of Lender’s rights and remedies, whether evidenced by this Agreement, the Loan Documents, or by any other writing, shall be cumulative and may be exercised singularly or concurrently. Election by Lender to pursue any remedy shall not exclude pursuit of any other remedy, and an election to make expenditures or to take action to perform an obligation of Grantor under this Agreement, after Grantor’s failure to perform, shall not affect Lender’s right to declare a default and exercise its remedies.
INDEMNIFICATION OF LENDER. Grantor agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Lender harmless from any and all claims, suits, obligations, damages, losses, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, Lender’s attorneys’ fees), demands, liabilities, penalties, fines and forfeitures of any nature whatsoever that may be asserted against or Incurred by Lender, its officers, directors, employees, and agents arising out of, relating to, or in any manner occasioned by this Agreement and the exercise of the rights and remedies granted Lender under this Agreement. The foregoing indemnity provisions shall survive the cancellation of this Agreement as to all matters arising or accruing prior to such cancellation and the foregoing indemnity shall survive in the event Lender elects to exercise any of the remedies as provided under this Agreement following default hereunder.
Amendments. This Agreement, together with the Loan Documents, constitutes the entire understanding and agreement of the parties as to the matters set forth in this Agreement. No alteration of or amendment to this Agreement shall be effective unless given in writing and signed by the party or parties sought to be charged or bound by the alteration or amendment.
Attorneys’ Fees & Expenses. Grantor agrees to pay upon demand all of Lender’s costs and expenses, including Lender’s attorneys’ fees and Lender’s legal expenses, incurred in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement, including, without limitation, such fees and expenses incurred in non‑judicial enforcement, bankruptcy proceedings, and any judicial proceedings.
Caption Headings. Caption headings in this Agreement are for convenience purposes only and are not to be used to interpret or define the provisions of this Agreement.
Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement will be governed by federal law applicable to Lender and, to the extent not preempted by federal law, the laws of the State of Wisconsin, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. This Agreement has been accepted by Lender in the State of Wisconsin. Borrower and Grantor consent to the jurisdiction of the court in and for the State of Wisconsin, and agree that the exclusive venue for any action brought by or against any party arising from or relating to this Agreement shall be the courts in and for the State of Wisconsin.

Joint and Several Liability. All obligations of Borrower and Grantor under this Agreement shall be joint and several.
Notices. Any notice required to be given under this Agreement, unless the form of service of notice is specified by law, shall be effective when actually delivered in writing by receipt‑confirmed facsimile transmission or receipt‑confirmed email directed to party’s designated officer responsible for administration of such party’s duties and rights associated with this Agreement, or when deposited with a nationally recognized overnight courier to the recipient party’s addresses shown in this Agreement, or when deposited in the United States mail, as first class, certified or registered mail postage prepaid, directed to the addresses shown in this Agreement. Any party may change its address for notices under this Agreement by giving written notice to the other parties.
Severability. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Agreement to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable as to any circumstance, that finding shall not make the offending provision illegal, invalid, or unenforceable as to any other circumstance. If feasible, the offending provision shall be considered modified so that it becomes legal, valid and enforceable. If the offending provision cannot be so modified, it shall be considered deleted from this Agreement. Unless otherwise required by law, the illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement shall not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement.
Successors and Assigns. Subject to any limitations stated in this Agreement, this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and authorized assigns.
No Waiver by Lender. Lender shall not be deemed to have waived any rights under this Agreement unless such waiver is given in writing and signed by Lender. No delay or omission on the part of Lender in exercising any right shall operate as a waiver of such right or any other right. A waiver by Lender of a provision of this Agreement shall not prejudice or constitute a waiver of Lender’s right otherwise to demand strict compliance with that provision or any other provision of this Agreement. No prior waiver by Lender, nor any course of dealing between Lender and Grantor, shall constitute a waiver of any of Lender’s rights or of any of Grantor’s obligations as to any future transactions. Whenever the consent of Lender is required under this Agreement, the granting of such consent by Lender in any instance shall not constitute continuing consent to subsequent instances where such consent is required and in all cases such consent may be granted or withheld in the sole discretion of Lender.
