WHEREAS, Lessor is the owner of a Bombardier BD100-1A10 Challenger 350 aircraft, manufacturer’s serial number 20611, United States registration N350 PD, including its engines, accessories, components and parts (the “Aircraft”); and
WHEREAS, the parties have agreed that Lessor shall lease the Aircraft to Lessee on a non-exclusive basis for use by Lessee upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual covenants, agreements, representations and warranties set forth herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which hereby are acknowledged, Lessor and Lessee, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:
Lease of Aircraft.
(a)This Lease sets forth the exclusive terms and conditions under which Lessee is entitled to use the Aircraft, and Lessee shall have no right to use the Aircraft except as expressly set forth herein. Lessor shall lease the Aircraft to Lessee, and Lessee shall lease the Aircraft from Lessor, during all Lease Periods throughout the Term (as defined in Section 12) of this Lease as provided hereunder. “Lease Periods” shall mean those times, if any, when the Aircraft is being utilized by Lessee hereunder, with the consent of Lessor as provided in Section 1(e), for flight operations conducted by Lessee under Part 91 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (“FARs”), including any deadhead, ferry or repositioning flights to return the Aircraft to the airport at which the Lease Period commenced or to position the Aircraft for a Lessee trip at a remote location away from Republic Airport, Farmingdale, New York (KFRG), but excluding any deadhead, ferry and repositioning flights described in Section 1(b) below (“Lessee Flights”). Lessee’s right to use the Aircraft hereunder during the Term shall be non-exclusive and is subject in all respects to (i) Lessor’s right to use the Aircraft at all times during the Term other than during such Lease Periods and (ii) Lessor’s right to permit other non-exclusive lessees to use the Aircraft under their operational control and possession, command and control
(b)Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that if a trip by Lessee causes or will cause the Aircraft to be at a remote location away from KFRG (“Lessee’s Location”), Lessee shall, at Lessor’s request, permit the Aircraft to be relocated from Lessee’s Location to KFRG or other location designated by Lessor (and thereafter shall be returned to Lessee’s Location) if Lessor requires use of the Aircraft directly or for one of its affiliated non-exclusive lessees, but only if such itinerary will not unreasonably delay or interfere with any scheduled flight by Lessee. In that event, (i) Lessee’s then-current Lease Period shall terminate effective as of initial engine start-up for the departure flight from Lessee’s Location; (ii) Lessor or its affiliated non-exclusive lessee shall pay all costs incurred during the period in which the Aircraft is away from Lessee’s Location, including all occupied and deadhead legs to ferry the Aircraft from Lessee’s Location and back; and (iii) a new Lease Period shall begin effective as of final engine shut-down upon return of the Aircraft to Lessee’s Location.
(c)Transfer of the Aircraft from Lessor to Lessee to commence a Lease Period
hereunder, and transfer of the Aircraft from Lessee to Lessor to terminate a Lease Period hereunder, shall be evidenced by the entry of appropriate notations of such transfer on the Aircraft’s logs. Upon the commencement or termination of any Lease Period hereunder, the party transferring possession of the Aircraft shall deliver the Aircraft to the other party at KFRG or such other location as the parties may agree. In the case of a transfer of possession from Lessee to Lessor, the Aircraft shall be in at least the same operating condition, order, repair and condition as when received by Lessee at the commencement of the Lease Period, reasonable wear and tear and maintenance events arising during the Lease Period not caused by Lessee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct excepted.
(d)Subject to Aircraft and crew availability, Lessor shall use its good faith efforts, consistent with Lessor’s approved policies, in order to accommodate the needs of Lessee, to avoid conflicts in scheduling with Lessor’s affiliated non-exclusive lessees’ use of the Aircraft, and to enable Lessee to enjoy the benefits of this Lease; however, Lessee acknowledges and agrees that notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, Lessor shall have sole and exclusive final authority over the scheduling of the Aircraft and Lessor’s other affiliated nonexclusive lessees’ needs for the Aircraft shall take precedence over Lessee’s rights and Lessor’s obligations under this Lease pursuant to Section 1(e).
(e)Lessee shall use its reasonable efforts to give Lessor as much advance notice of Lessee’s proposed utilization hereunder. If Lessee notifies Lessor pursuant to Section 15 of Lessee’s proposed use of the Aircraft and Lessor consents thereto, the period described in such notice of proposed use may be scheduled by Lessee (unless such intended use is cancelled by Lessee by like notice to Lessor). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, all Lessee Flights approved by Lessor and scheduled by Lessee are subject to the absolute right of Lessor to revoke such approval at any time prior to twenty four (24) hours before the scheduled departure of the initial flight of the approved itinerary, without liability, upon notice to Lessee. Any notice under this Section 1(e) may be either written or oral, but shall be given only to or by individuals designated by each party from time to time as authorized to act on its behalf for purposes of this Section 1(e).
(a)Lessee shall remit to Lessor the sum per block hour set forth on Schedule 1 hereto from time to time as Rent for the use of the Aircraft by Lessee during each Lease Period hereunder. For this purpose, a “block hour” shall be measured in hours and tenths of hours, rounded to the nearest tenth of an hour, from the time the Aircraft moves for purposes of flight at the departure airport to the time the Aircraft comes to a stop at the arrival airport.
(b)Not later than thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar month during the Term, Lessee shall provide to Lessor a statement showing all use of the Aircraft during Lease Periods during that month, and a complete accounting detailing any Rent due from Lessee for that month. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, Lessee shall have no obligation to utilize the Aircraft hereunder, and there shall be no Rent payable to Lessor hereunder with respect to any calendar month if Lessee does not use the Aircraft hereunder during such month. All payments of Rent due for any calendar month shall be made at Lessor’s address set forth above, or at such other place as Lessor may designate to Lessee in writing from time to time, not later than the thirtieth (30th) day of the following month.
3.Expenses. Lessor shall pay the entire cost of insuring, maintaining and fueling the Aircraft during the Term. Lessee shall pay the following trip-specific costs of operating the Aircraft during Lease Periods under this Lease:

(b)Only fully-qualified and properly-credentialed flight crew members who are included under the insurance coverage required to be maintained hereunder shall be permitted to operate the Aircraft during any Lease Period. All flight crew utilized by Lessee hereunder shall comply with all applicable regulations and the requirements of all applicable operations and maintenance manuals.
5.Operational Control; Operations.
(a)Lessor and Lessee intend that the lease of the Aircraft effected hereby shall be treated as a “dry lease”. Notwithstanding anything in this Lease to the contrary, Lessee shall have complete and exclusive operational control, and complete and exclusive possession, command and control, of the Aircraft for all flights during each Lease Period under this Lease. Lessee shall have complete and absolute control of the crewmembers in preparation for and in connection with the operation of all flights during each Lease Period under this Lease. Lessee shall have complete and exclusive responsibility for scheduling, dispatching and flight following of the Aircraft on all flights conducted during Lease Periods under this Lease, which responsibility includes the sole and exclusive right over initiating, conducting and terminating any such flights. Lessee shall have no operational control over any flights of the Aircraft not conducted during Lease Periods under this Lease.
(b)Lessee shall use and operate the Aircraft under this Lease only in accordance with applicable manufacturers’ recommendations and airport and climatic conditions. Neither Lessee nor Lessor shall permit the Aircraft to be maintained, used or operated in violation of any law, rule, regulation, ordinance or order of any governmental authority having jurisdiction, or in violation of any airworthiness certificate, license or registration relating to the Aircraft.
6.Regulatory. Lessee shall obtain and maintain in full force and effect any necessary certificates, licenses, permits and authorizations required for its use and operation of the Aircraft hereunder. Lessee agrees to conduct all operations contemplated by this Lease in compliance with all applicable provisions of the FARs, including, but not limited to, Part 91 thereof.
7.Records. Lessee shall maintain any records required by applicable laws, rules or regulations in connection with the operation of the Aircraft during any Lease Period hereunder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Lessee shall maintain or cause to be maintained flight log books
showing the full flight time of the Aircraft during each Lease Period hereunder, and shall keep such logs available for inspection by Lessor or its representatives at all reasonable times. Lessor shall be entitled, upon reasonable notice to Lessee, to inspect any books or records of Lessee that relate to the Aircraft’s use hereunder.
8.Remote Locations. Lessee shall pay the cost of hangaring the Aircraft at remote locations during any Lease Periods hereunder.
(a)During the Term, Lessor will procure and maintain or cause to be procured and maintained at its sole cost and expense aircraft insurance (the “Policy”) that satisfies all of the requirements of this Section 9.

(c)On or before the date hereof, Lessor will provide Lessee with a certificate of insurance evidencing all coverages in compliance with the requirements of this Lease.
10.Maintenance.

No period of maintenance, preventive maintenance or inspection shall be delayed or postponed for the purpose of scheduling the Aircraft, unless said maintenance or inspection can be safely conducted at a later time in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Lessor represents and warrants that, at all times during the Term, the Aircraft will be in airworthy condition and current on the approved maintenance program.
