Invoices and Payment of Flight-Related Expenses. Operator will initially pay all expenses related to the operation of the Aircraft when and as such expenses are incurred. Within thirty (30) days after the last day of any calendar month during which any flight for the account of Lessee has been conducted, Operator shall provide an invoice to Lessee for an amount determined in accordance with Section 6 above and including any applicable Taxes under Section 8 (the “flight related expenses”). Lessee hereby voluntarily authorizes Operator, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law and after any other legally authorized or required deductions or withholdings have been deducted from Lessee’s regular payroll payment, to deduct from the first regular payroll payment after the invoice date, or as soon as administratively feasible, to be issued by Operator to Lessee according to Operator’s payroll practices the flight-related expenses; provided that with regard to any such flight-related expenses that exceed the amount of wages due Lessee that may be legally deducted or that remain indeterminable as of such payroll date, such flight-related expenses will be deducted from each of Lessee’s subsequent regular payroll payments to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law until such flight-related expenses have been fully recovered by Operator. Lessee may revoke the wage deductions voluntarily authorized by this Section 7 at any time by providing at least ten (10) business days’ notice of such revocation; provided however that upon any such revocation the balance of any flight-related expenses owed by Lessee under this Agreement will become immediately due and owing to Operator and Operator may thereafter deny Lessee further use of the Aircraft until a new payment arrangement is agreed to by Lessee and Operator. Upon termination of Lessee’s employment with Operator for any reason, the full amount of any flight-related expenses owed by Lessee to Operator under this Agreement and not yet recovered under the terms of this Section will become immediately due and owing to Operator on Lessee’s final day of employment with the Operator. With respect to any amount of flight-related expenses that Lessee is required to remit directly to Operator under this Section 7, Lessee shall remit the full amount, together with any applicable Taxes under Section 8, by payment made in the form of a check payable to “SUPERVALU INC.” at the following address:
11840 Valley View Road
Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55344
Attn: General Counsel
Or to such other address as Operator may direct from time-to-time.
8. Taxes. Lessee shall be responsible for, shall indemnify and hold harmless Operator against, any Taxes which may be assessed or levied as a result of the lease of the Aircraft to Lessee, or the use of the Aircraft by Lessee, including without limitation, any “federal excise tax” or “FET” imposed under Internal Revenue Code §4261 resulting from Lessee’s (or his guests’) use of the Aircraft under this Agreement. Lessee shall remit to Operator all such Taxes together with each payment made pursuant to Section 7.
9. Scheduling Flights.
9.1 Lessee shall submit requests for flight time and proposed flight schedules to the Operator as far in advance of any given flight as reasonably possible. Lessee shall provide at least the following information for each proposed flight as far in advance as reasonably possible prior to scheduled departure: departure airport; destination airport; date and time of departure; the names of all passengers; the nature and extent of luggage and/or cargo to be carried; the date and time of return flight, if any; and any other information concerning the proposed flight that may be pertinent or required by Operator or Operator’s flight crew.
9.2 Each use of the Aircraft by Lessee shall be subject to Operator’s prior approval, and for each term of the agreement the maximum number of hours for use under this agreement shall be determined by Supervalu’s Board of Directors. Operator will use reasonable efforts to accommodate Lessee’s needs and avoid conflicts in scheduling; provided however, that Operator shall not be liable to Lessee or any other person for loss, injury, or damage occasioned by any delay or failure to furnish the Aircraft, with a flight crew, pursuant to this Agreement for any reason. Operator shall not be obligated to retain or contract for additional flight crew or maintenance personnel or equipment in order to accommodate a flight request submitted by Lessee.
9.3 Lessee’s rights to schedule the use of the Aircraft shall at all times be subordinate to the Aircraft use requirements of Operator and TTSJ Aviation, Inc., as owner of the Aircraft (“Owner”).
10. Title and Registration. Owner has exclusive legal and equitable title to the Aircraft. Lessee acknowledges that title to the Aircraft shall remain vested in Owner. Lessee undertakes, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, to do all such further acts, deeds, assurances or things as may be necessary or desirable, in Operator’s reasonable opinion, to protect or preserve Operator’s lease interest and Owner’s title to the Aircraft.
11. Aircraft Maintenance. Operator shall be solely responsible for maintenance, preventive maintenance and required or otherwise necessary inspections of the Aircraft, and shall take such requirements into account in scheduling the Aircraft. No period of maintenance, preventative 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 Law, and within the sound discretion of the Pilot in Command.
12. Flight Crews. Operator shall provide, at its sole cost, to Lessee a qualified flight crew for each flight conducted in accordance with this Agreement. The members of the flight crew may be either employees or independent contractors of Operator. In either event, the flight crew shall be and remain under the exclusive command and control of Operator in all phases of all flights conducted hereunder.
13. OPERATIONAL CONTROL. THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT OPERATOR SHALL HAVE AND MAINTAIN SOLE OPERATIONAL CONTROL OF THE AIRCRAFT AND EXCLUSIVE POSSESSION, COMMAND AND CONTROL OF THE AIRCRAFT FOR ALL FLIGHTS OPERATED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, AND THAT THE INTENT OF THE PARTIES IS THAT THIS AGREEMENT CONSTITUTE A “TIME SHARING AGREEMENT”
AS SUCH TERM IS DEFINED IN SECTION 91.501(C)(1) OF THE FAR. OPERATOR SHALL EXERCISE EXCLUSIVE AUTHORITY OVER INITIATING, CONDUCTING, OR TERMINATING ANY FLIGHT CONDUCTED ON BEHALF OF LESSEE PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT.
14. Authority of Pilot In Command. Notwithstanding that Operator shall have Operational Control of the Aircraft during any flight conducted pursuant to this Agreement, Operator and Lessee expressly agree that the Pilot in Command, in his or her sole discretion, may terminate any flight, refuse to commence any flight, or take any other flight-related action which in the judgment of the Pilot in Command is necessary to ensure the safety of the Aircraft, the flight crew, the passengers, and persons and property on the ground. The Pilot in Command shall have final and complete authority to postpone or cancel any flight for any reason or condition that in his or her judgment would compromise the safety of the flight. No such action of the Pilot in Command shall create or support any liability of Operator to Lessee for loss, injury, damage or delay.
15. Passengers and Baggage. Lessee may carry on the Aircraft on all flights under this Agreement such passengers and baggage/cargo as Lessee in its sole but reasonable discretion shall determine; provided, however, that the passengers to be carried on such flights shall be limited to those permitted under the pertinent provisions of Part 91 of the FAR, and that the number of such passengers shall in no event exceed the number of passenger seats legally available in the Aircraft and the total load, including fuel and oil in such quantities as the Pilot in Command shall determine to be required, shall not exceed the maximum allowable load for the Aircraft.
16. Prohibited Items. Lessee shall not cause or permit to be carried on board the Aircraft, and shall not cause or permit any passenger to carry on board the Aircraft, any contraband, prohibited dangerous goods, or prohibited controlled substances on the Aircraft at any time.
17. Force Majeure. Operator shall not be liable for delay or failure to furnish the Aircraft and/or flight crew pursuant to this Agreement when such failure is caused by government regulation or authority, mechanical difficulty, war, civil commotion, strikes or labor disputes, weather conditions, acts of God or other unforeseen or unanticipated circumstances.
18. Insurance and Limitation of Liability.
18.1 At all times during the term of this Agreement, Operator shall cause to be carried and maintained, at Operator’s cost and expense, aircraft public and passenger legal liability coverage, commercial general liability covering bodily injury, property damage and personal injury liability, and all risk hull insurance in such amounts and on such terms and conditions as Operator shall determine in its sole discretion. Operator shall also bear the cost of paying any deductible amount on any policy of insurance in the event of a claim or loss.
18.2 Any policies of insurance carried in accordance with this Agreement: (i) shall name Lessee as an additional insured; (ii) shall contain a waiver by the underwriter thereof of any right of subrogation against Lessee; and (iii) shall require the insurers to provide at least 30 days’ prior written notice (or at least seven days’ in the case of any war-risk
insurance) to Lessee if the insurers cancel insurance for any reason whatsoever, provided that the insurers shall provide at least 10 days prior written notice if the same is allowed to lapse for non-payment of premium. Each liability policy shall be primary without right of contribution from any other insurance which is carried by Lessee or Operator 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.
18.3 Operator shall obtain the approval of this Agreement by the insurance carrier for each policy of insurance on the Aircraft. If requested by Lessee, Operator shall arrange for a certificate of insurance evidencing the insurance coverage with respect to the Aircraft maintained by Operator to be given by its insurance carriers to Lessee or will provide Lessee with a copy of such insurance policies. Operator will give Lessee reasonable advance notice of any material modifications to insurance coverage relating to the Aircraft.
18.4 Lessee agrees that the insurance specified in this Section 18 provides its sole recourse for all claims, losses, liabilities, obligations, demands, suits, judgments or causes of action, penalties, fines, costs and expenses of any nature whatsoever, including attorneys’ fees and expenses for or on account of or arising out of, or in any way connected with the use of the Aircraft by Lessee or its guests, including injury to or death of any persons, including Lessee and its guests which may result from or arise out of the use or operation of the Aircraft during the term of this Agreement (“Claims”), regardless of whether such Claims arise out of or are caused by, in whole or in part, the negligence, gross negligence, or strict liability of Operator or Owner.
19. Lessee Representations and Warranties. Lessee represents and warrants that:
19.1 Lessee will use the Aircraft solely for and on account of his own personal use, and will not use the Aircraft for the purpose of providing transportation of passengers or cargo for compensation or hire.
19.2 Lessee shall refrain from incurring any mechanic’s or other lien in connection with inspection, preventative maintenance, maintenance or storage of the Aircraft, whether permissible or impermissible under this Agreement, nor shall there be any attempt by Lessee to convey, mortgage, assign, lease, sublease, or any way alienate the Aircraft or create any kind of lien or security interest involving the Aircraft or do anything or take any action that might mature into such a lien.
19.3 During the Term of this Agreement, Lessee will abide by and conform to all Applicable Laws, governmental and airport orders, rules and regulations, as shall from time to time be in effect relating in any way to the use of the Aircraft by a time sharing lessee.
