Lessor shall have final authority over the scheduling of the PNC Aircraft; provided, that Lessor will use its best efforts to accommodate Lessee’s needs and to avoid conflicts in scheduling, consistent with the Lessor’s use of the PNC Aircraft in connection with its business operations.

Lessor shall be solely responsible for securing repairs, maintenance, preventive maintenance and required or otherwise necessary inspections of the PNC Aircraft, and shall take such requirements into account in scheduling the PNC Aircraft. No repair, period of maintenance, preventive maintenance, or inspection shall be delayed or postponed for the purpose of scheduling the PNC Aircraft, unless said repair, maintenance, or inspection can be safely conducted at a later time in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and within the sound discretion of the pilot in command. The pilot in command shall have final and complete authority to delay or cancel any flight for any reason or condition which in his judgment would compromise the safety of the flight. No such action of the pilot in command shall create or support any liability for loss, injury, damage, or delay to Lessee or any other person. 7. Lessor shall employ, pay for and provide to Lessee a qualified flight crew for each flight undertaken under this Agreement. 8. In accordance with applicable FAR, the qualified flight crew provided by Lessor will exercise all of its duties and responsibilities in regard to the safety of each flight conducted hereunder. Lessee specifically agrees that the flight crew, in its sole discretion, may terminate any flight, refuse to commence any flight, or take other action which in the considered judgment of the pilot in command is necessitated by considerations of safety. No such action of the pilot in command shall create or support any liability for loss, injury, damage, or delay to Lessee or any other person. The parties further agree that Lessor shall not be liable for delay or failure to furnish the PNC Aircraft and crew pursuant to this Agreement when such failure is caused by the demands of the Lessor’s business operations requiring its use of the PNC Aircraft, government regulation or authority, mechanical difficulty, war, civil commotion, strikes or labor disputes, weather conditions, or acts of God. 9. At all times during the term of this Lease, Lessor shall maintain the following insurance coverages from insurance carriers acceptable to Lessee: (a) PNC Aircraft Physical Damage insurance in an amount at least equal to the fair market value of the PNC Aircraft; and

Lessor shall provide certificates of insurance upon each renewal no less than thirty (30) days prior to coverage expiration. Lessee’s acceptance of such certificates is not to be construed as any waiver of Lessee’s rights to the insurance required. Further, if Lessee fails for any reason to receive certificates or other evidence of insurance from Lessor, such failure shall not be deemed a waiver of required coverage. Lessee retains the right to terminate this Agreement immediately if Lessor fails to provide adequate and proper evidence of required insurance. Lessor shall also bear the cost of paying any deductible amount on any policy of insurance in the event of a claim or loss. Each liability policy shall be primary without right of contribution from any other insurance which is carried by Lessee or Lessor and shall expressly provide that all of the provisions thereof, except the limits of liability, shall operate in the same manner as if there were a separate policy covering each insured. Lessor warrants that this Agreement has been reviewed by the insurance carrier for each policy of insurance on the PNC Aircraft and that the relevant terms and conditions of this Agreement are acceptable to each such carrier. 10. Lessee warrants that: (a) He will use the PNC Aircraft for and on account of his and his guests’ personal travel needs and will not use the PNC Aircraft for the purpose of providing transportation of passengers or cargo in air commerce for compensation or hire; and (b) He will refrain from incurring any mechanics or other lien and shall not attempt to convey, mortgage, assign or lease the PNC Aircraft or create any kind of lien or security
