This Agreement is entered into between ADPma, LLC (the “Seller”) and Customer for the sale of aircraft and engine parts and components (individually, a “Part” and collectively, the “Parts”) and is incorporated by reference in Seller’s quotation (the “Quotation”). By accepting Seller’s Quotation, Customer accepts this Agreement. Unless other terms and conditions are specified in Seller’s Quotation or Invoice, this Agreement will govern the offer and sale of Parts provided by Seller to Customer and supersede any and all prior contemporaneous agreements, negotiations, representations, warranties, and communications. This Agreement prevails over any of Customer’s general terms and conditions of purchase whether or not submitted with Customer’s purchase order. Acceptance of Customer’s purchase order does not constitute acceptance of any of Customer’s terms and conditions and does not serve to modify or amend this Agreement.
All orders from Customer must be made in writing and are subject to approval and confirmation upon receipt by Seller. Purchase orders may be emailed to [email protected]. No purchase order is guaranteed until Seller issues an Invoice to Customer confirming the order. Customer’s orders must be a minimum of $75.00.
All payments shall be made in United States Dollars (“USD”). Quoted prices are valid for thirty (30) days and subject to prior sale. Unless Customer has received prior credit approval from Seller, payment in full must be made in advance of delivery. Seller may cancel any purchase order if payment is not received by Seller within five (5) business days of the issuance of the Invoice for the Parts.
Any payments by credit or bank card are subject to a minimum 3.5% administrative fee. Checks returned for any reason will be assessed a processing charge of $100 USD.
If payment is to be made by wire transfer, Customer is responsible for its own bank’s wire transfer fees as well as an additional $15.00 USD for domestic wire transfers and an additional $40.00 USD for international wire transfers. Wire Transfer instructions can be found by contacting [email protected] .
Any excess payments received by Seller will be credited to Customer’s account.
All credit sales are net thirty (30) days or as otherwise provided for in the Quotation. All past due amounts shall bear interest at a rate of one and one-half percent (1½ %) per month or the maximum amount permitted by law commencing on the due date until the date the invoice amount is paid in full. Payment is due within the time frame allotted regardless of situations such as the component(s) waiting for repair at a shop or acceptance by the Customer’s quality department.
Customer agrees to pay any and all costs of collection including Seller’s attorney’s fees in the event it becomes necessary to enforce the payment of Seller’s invoices. Customer shall not have a right to set-off amounts due to Seller hereunder against any amount owed by Seller to Customer. Seller reserves a purchase money security interest in all Parts sold on credit and proceeds thereof until payment in full is made. Customer agrees to execute any financing statement requested by Seller to perfect its security interest in the Parts.
In order to be considered for credit sales approval, Customer must complete at least three (3) separate orders with Seller and submit a complete credit application to Seller. Once the credit application has been reviewed, Seller may approve or deny the application in Seller’s sole discretion and subject to such conditions as Seller may require. Seller reserves the right to establish other terms of payment and suspend or restrict shipments to the Customer if payments are delinquent, if the Customer has exceeded the established credit limit, or if, in Seller’s sole judgment and discretion, the financial condition of the Customer at any time does not justify the terms of payment specified.
Delivery terms are ExWorks Seller’s facility (EXW Incoterms 2010), unless otherwise provided in the Quotation. All Parts delivered shall be packaged in accordance with Seller’s standard packing procedures for such Parts. All orders will be shipped using Customer’s preferred shipping method and respective account, unless otherwise specified in the Quotation. Any shipping costs billed to Seller without prior approval will be invoiced to Customer together with a 20% handling fee.
International shipments that are shipped on Seller’s accounts may result in two (2) separate Invoices:
Invoice 1: Customer will be invoiced for shipping charges on the date of the shipment.
Invoice 2: Seller will invoice the Customer for all duties, taxes, and fees after Seller has received the Customer’s preferred carrier’s invoice.
A $75.00 USD Aircraft on Ground (AOG) fee will apply to any order that is requested to ship same day but received between 3:00 to 5:00 pm EST. A $250 USD fee will apply to all AOG orders received after 5:00 pm EST on weekdays, and weekend and holiday orders, if it is required to ship the same day. Shipments of component(s) designated as Hazardous Material (“HazMat”) are subject to a minimum $75.00 USD fee in addition to any other applicable shipping fee.
An FAA Form 8130-3 (Airworthiness Approval Tag) will be completed by a Designated Engineering Representative. The fee for any reissuance of a lost or destroyed Form 8130-3 is $250 USD.
Seller will not be liable for any delay in performance due to causes beyond Seller’s control including, but not limited to, embargoes, blockages, delays or refusals to grant export or import licenses or the suspension or revocation thereof, or any other acts or omissions of government, fires, floods, severe weather, or any other acts of God, quarantines, labor strikes, riots, insurrection, acts of criminals or terrorists, war, material shortages or delays in delivery by third parties. In the event of such delay the delivery date shall be extended for a period of time as may be reasonably necessary to compensate for such delay. Seller will not be liable for lost profits, loss of business, or other incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages arising out of any delay. Customer agrees that, for any liability arising out of delay, Seller is not liable or responsible for any amount of damage above the aggregate dollar amount paid by Customer for the purchase of the Parts under this Agreement.
Cancellation of orders may not be made without the written consent of Seller and such orders are subject to a 20% cancellation and restocking fee. Seller may cancel any Customer orders that do not ship within five (5) business days of when the Part is available for shipment if such delay is due in whole or in part to Customer or any Customer agent, including, without limitation, any delay by Customer’s shipping agent.
Customer shall, within thirty (30) calendar days after deemed receipt of a Part, notify Seller at email@example.com of any nonconforming Part, missing or excess quantities, missing or inadequate paperwork, or Parts delivered to an incorrect shipping address (due to Seller’s mistake) (collectively, a “Defective Shipment”). Seller may require Customer to provide supporting documentation to Seller of the Defective Shipment, including, but not limited to:
Upon Customer’s provision of timely notice of a Defective Shipment and the documentation reasonably required by Seller, Seller will issue to Customer a Return Material Authorization (RMA). Customer will return the Defective Shipment to Seller and permit Seller a reasonable opportunity to replace the nonconforming Parts. If Seller determines, in its sole discretion, that the Defective Shipment was not attributable in any manner to Seller, Customer will be responsible for all costs related to return and reshipment. If Seller determines, in its sole discretion, that the Defective Shipment was attributable to Seller, Seller will be responsible for all costs related to return and reshipment. Failure to request an RMA and provide all supporting documentation within 30 days of Customer’s deemed receipt of the Parts will result in the denial of the requested return.
All requests for an RMA to return Parts for credit (as opposed to a return and reshipment of a Defective Shipment) must be received by Seller within thirty (30) days from Invoice date. Any requests after such thirty (30) days will be denied. Parts must be returned by Customer in the original condition in which such Parts were sold to Customer. All returns for credit are subject to a 20% restocking fee.
Customer is required to follow the instructions for return of the Parts as marked on the RMA. The RMA number must be referenced on all documentation pertaining to the return and must also be clearly marked on the outside of the returned package. If Parts are shipped to a location other than the address supplied on the RMA, Customer is responsible for shipping fees to the correct location. Any Part or supporting documentation returned to Seller that is altered, damaged, or missing subcomponents will be deemed a return without an RMA and may trigger additional actions up to and including the filing of a report with the FAA.
In the event Seller issues an RMA to Customer for the return of Parts, Customer must deliver the Part to Seller within fourteen (14) calendar days for domestic shipments and twenty-one (21) calendar days for international shipments. Any returns received after the required date will be treated as a return without an RMA. For any Customer returns of a Part without an RMA, Seller may elect to reject the Part and return it to Customer at Customer’s sole expense or accept the Part and charge Customer a 75% restocking fee. Seller’s replacement of Parts or issuance of credit under this section will be Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for a Defective Shipment under this Agreement.
Seller represents that it shall have good and marketable title to the Parts sold to Customer on the date of sale. Title shall be conveyed by Seller to Customer on the date of sale, subject to Seller’s purchase money security interest in receiving sales proceeds from Customer.
Seller warrants the merchantability of a Part only for the following applicable timeframes and amounts:
Under no circumstances does Seller warrant, and the express warranties are void with respect to:
This express warranty is void if any attempt is made to repair defective Parts or any repair tag shall have been defaced, altered or removed, without the consent of Seller. This includes testing of Parts except if being tested by an end user for end use.
OTHER THAN THE WARRANTY OF TITLE AND EXPRESS WARRANTY GRANTED IN THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPH, NO WARRANTY SHALL BE PROVIDED BY SELLER WITH RESPECT TO PARTS SOLD HEREUNDER, AND EACH PART SOLD TO CUSTOMER IS SOLD IN “AS-IS” CONDITION WITH ALL ASSIGNABLE WARRANTIES FROM THE LAST OPERATOR OR REPAIR FACILITY (IF SUCH WARRANTIES EXIST), AND THE OBLIGATIONS AND LIABILITY OF SELLER HEREUNDER ARE EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, AND CUSTOMER HEREBY WAIVES AND RELEASES SELLER FROM ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, AGREEMENTS, GUARANTEES, CONDITIONS, OBLIGATIONS, DUTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, REMEDIES OR LIABILITIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY PARTS, ARISING IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT, WHETHER UNDER THEORIES OF NEGLIGENCE, STRICT NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: (1) ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; (2) ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY ARISING FROM COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE; AND (3) ANY OBLIGATION, LIABILITY, RIGHT, CLAIM OR REMEDY, FOR LOSS OF USE OR DAMAGE TO ANY ENGINE OR AIRCRAFT OR ANY OTHER PROPERTY FOR LOSS OF REVENUE OR PROFIT WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH PROPERTY FOR LIABILITY OF CUSTOMER TO ANY THIRD PARTY OR FOR ANY OTHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER WITH RESPECT TO ANY PART SOLD HEREUNDER, EXCEPT IN THE CASE OF SELLER’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT.
Customer shall carry and maintain such insurance in full force and effect and in types and amounts as would be carried by other companies engaged in the Customer’s industry. Such policies of insurance shall be primary with respect to the Indemnities of Customer set forth in section 13 and shall contain waivers of subrogation of the insurers in favor of the Seller Indemnitees. Customer shall provide Seller certificates of insurance upon Seller’s request.

Customer agrees to indemnify and hold Seller harmless, consistent with the terms of this Agreement, against any and all claims, damages, or liability arising from any breach of Customer’s obligations under this section.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all existing agreements and all other oral or written communications between the parties concerning the subject matter herein, unless specifically agreed upon in a Quotation or Invoice or otherwise modified in writing by the parties. Seller rejects any of Customer’s inconsistent conditions in purchase orders or however stated and such conditions shall not be part of this Agreement, unless specific and explicit references to changes to this Agreement are made in writing by an authorized representative of Seller.
Customer acknowledges that it will obtain confidential information provided as a result of this Agreement, including, without limitation, all provisions of the Quotation, drawings, specifications, schematics, and formulae (the “Confidential Information”).

Customer acknowledges and agrees that any use or disclosure of Confidential Information in violation of this Agreement will cause Seller irreparable harm without an adequate legal remedy; therefore, Seller shall be entitled to injunctive relief from any court having jurisdiction.
If a purchase order expires, is completed, or is terminated, Customer shall not be relieved of its obligations contained herein. All the provisions of this Agreement will survive such termination.
