SPARE PARTS WARRANTY


ONE YEAR/1,000 HOURS PRORATED
WARRANTY AND REMEDY: Seller warrants each new helicopter part or helicopter part reconditioned by seller to be free from defect
in material and workmanship under normal use and service and if installed on Bell model helicopters. Sellers sole obligation under this
warranty is limited to replacement or repair of parts which are determined to Sellers reasonable satisfaction to have been defective
with 1,000 hours of operation or one (1) year after installation, whichever occurs first and reimbursement of reasonable freight charges.
After 200 hours of use, there will be a prorated charge to the Purchaser for replacement parts (prorating the hours of total use against
the then applicable part life or 2,000 hours, whichever is the lesser). Defective parts must be reported in writing to the Sellers Warranty
Administration within 90 days of being found defective. Replacement of parts may be with either new or reconditioned parts, at Sellers
election. Warranty adjustment is contingent upon the Purchaser complying with the Warranty Remedies as described in the
Commercial Warranty Information brochure and the Sellers Warranty Administration disposition instructions for defective parts. Failure
to comply with all of the terms of this paragraph may, at Sellers sole option, void this warranty.
NOTE: Parts, components and assemblies of all new helicopters may have been restored or reworked due to mars, blemishes, dents
or other irregularities during the manufacturing process. Such restoration and/or rework is permitted under Sellers approved
manufacturing and engineering processes and guidelines. The restoration and/or rework so completed does not render such items
defective in material or workmanship.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN AND ACCEPTED IN PLACE OF (i) ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANT ABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND (ii) ANY OBLIGATION, LIABILITY, RIGHT, CLAIM OR REMEDY IN CONTRACTOR
IN TORT (DELICT), INCLUDING PRODUCT LIABILITIES BASED UPON STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE, OR IMPLIED
WARRANTY IN LAW.
This warranty is the only warranty made by Seller. The Purchasers sole remedy for a breach of this warranty or any defect in a part is
the repair or replacement of helicopter parts and reimbursement of reasonable freight charges as provided herein. Seller excludes
liability, whether as a result of a breach of contract or warranty, negligence or strict product liability, for incidental or consequential
damages, including without limitation, damage to the helicopter or other property, costs and expenses resulting from required changes
or modifications to helicopter components and assemblies, changes in retirement lives and overhaul periods, local customs fees and
taxes, and costs or expenses for commercial losses or lost profits due to loss of use or grounding of helicopters or otherwise.
Seller makes no warranty and disclaims all liability in contract or in tort (delict), including, without limitation, negligence and strict tort
(delictual) liability, with respect to work performed by third parties at Purchasers request and with respect to engines, engine
accessories, batteries, radios, and avionics, except Seller assigns each manufacturers warranty to Purchaser to the extent such
manufacturers warranty exists and is assignable.
This warranty shall not apply to any helicopter part which has been repaired or altered outside Sellers factory in any way so as, in
Sellers judgment, to affect its stability, safety or reliability, or which has been subject to misuse, negligence or accident, or which has
been installed in any aircraft which has been destroyed unless that helicopter has been rebuilt by Bell. A list of destroyed aircraft is
obtainable from Bell Product Support. Repairs and alterations which use or incorporate parts and components other than genuine Bell
parts or parts approved by Bell for direct acquisition from sources other than Bell itself are not warranted by Bell, and this warranty shall
be void to the extent that such repairs and alterations, in Sellers sole judgment, affect the stability, safety or reliability of the helicopter
or any part thereof, or damage genuine Bell or Bell-approved parts. No person, corporation or organization, including Bell Customer
Service Facilities, is authorized by Seller to assume for it any other liability in connection with the sale of its helicopters and parts.
NO STATEMENT, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, MADE BY ANY PERSON, CORPORATION OR ORGANIZATION, INCLUDING
BELL CUSTOMER SERVICE FACILITIES MAY BE TAKEN AS A WARRANTY NOR WILL IT BIND SELLER.
Seller makes no warranty and disclaims all liability with respect to components or parts damaged by, or worn due to, corrosion. Seller
makes no warranty and disclaims all liability for consumables (wear items) which are defined as items required for normal and routine
maintenance or replaced at scheduled intervals shorter than the warranty period. Consumables include but are not limited to engine
and hydraulic oil, oil filters, packings and o-rings, anti-corrosion and/or sealing compounds, brush plating material, nuts, bolts, washers,
screws, fluids, compounds, and standard aircraft hardware that is readily available to aircraft operators from sources other than Seller.
All legal actions based upon claims or disputes pertaining to or involving this warranty including, but not limited to, Sellers denial of any
claim or portion thereof under this warranty, must be filed in the courts of general jurisdiction of Tarrant County, Texas or in the United
States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Ft. Worth Division located in Ft. Worth, Tarrant County, Texas. In the event that
Purchaser files such an action in either of the court systems identified above, and a final judgment in Sellers favor is rendered by such
court, then Purchaser shall indemnify Seller for all costs, expenses and attorneys fees incurred by Seller in defense of such claims. In
the event Purchaser files such a legal action in a court other than those specified, and Seller successfully obtains dismissal of that
action or transfer thereof to the above described court systems, then Purchaser shall indemnify Seller for all costs, expenses and
attorneys fees incurred by Seller in obtaining such dismissal or transfer.
