5. PRICE AND PAYMENT SCHEDULE
5.1 The Estimated Price herein is subject to change at CoaX Helicopter’s sole discretion.

5.2 Progress payments for the remainder of the Final Purchase Price less the Deposit Amount will be set forth in the Aircraft Purchase Agreement with the final payment due no later than the Aircraft Delivery Date. Payments are subject to verification by CoaX. Taxes will be the responsibility of the purchaser dependent upon the taxation regulations of the country of operation.
5.3 Once CoaX has received a signed copy of the Aircraft Purchase Agreement, the Deposit will then be regarded as a progress payment subject to the terms of the Aircraft Purchase Agreement which will supersede this Deposit Agreement.
5.4 The Deposit shall be held in an Australian bank trust account. CoaX is responsible for the costs of the holding account and is entitled to any interest earned on deposited funds. The Purchaser agrees to provide information that may be requested by the Bank operating the trust account so as to fully comply with the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth of Australia. Should The Purchaser cancel the Deposit in accordance with the Deposit Agreement, CoaX will direct the release and return the Deposit (less cancellation or other fees if applicable) to The Purchaser. When The Purchaser executes an Aircraft Purchase Agreement, CoaX will direct the release of the Deposit to CoaX to be applied toward the Purchase Price as provided in the Aircraft Purchase Agreement. Should The Purchaser fail to timely cancel or execute an Aircraft Purchase Agreement, the Deposit is forfeited and CoaX will direct the release and return of the Deposit to CoaX.
5.5 Prices are quoted in US dollars, however the deposit will be held in Australian dollars. Any termination payments will be made for the Australian dollar amount previously deposited into the trust account.
6.1 The Purchaser may cancel this Deposit Agreement by providing written notice to CoaX Helicopters no later than twenty-one calendar days after the date of the Production Notice. In the event The Purchaser cancels this Deposit Agreement within the stipulated time frame, The Purchaser’s Deposit will be refundable less a $300.00 administration fee. CoaX Helicopters will refund the Deposit to The Purchaser within forty-five days after receipt of a timely cancellation notice.
6.2 CoaX may terminate this Deposit Agreement upon written notice to The Purchaser, if any of the following apply:

b. The Purchaser fails to make any required payments in a timely manner or otherwise fails to comply with this Deposit Agreement; or
c. A proceeding under any law of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization or relief of debtors is instituted by or against The Purchaser.
6.3 CoaX will use this Deposit Agreement as an important measure of demand for the Aircraft and will commit to development and production costs accordingly. If this Deposit Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section 6.2, CoaX will be damaged in a manner that will be difficult to calculate. For these reasons, if CoaX terminates this Deposit Agreement under Section 6.2, CoaX may cancel The Purchaser’s delivery position and retain all Deposits and any other pre-delivery payments made by The Purchaser as liquidated damages. If The Purchaser is unable to enter into an Aircraft Purchase Agreement for reasons that are beyond The Purchaser’s control, then CoaX, in its sole discretion, may refund all or a portion of any pre-delivery payments that have been received by CoaX. The Purchaser acknowledges that the foregoing liquidated damages provision is an important consideration to CoaX’s willingness to enter into this Deposit Agreement and is not a penalty.
6.4 CoaX may terminate this Deposit Agreement upon written notice to The Purchaser, if CoaX, in its sole discretion, determines that either;
a. The Purchaser’s demonstrated behavior is inconsistent with a safe pilot’s code of conduct, including acting professionally, respectfully, courteously, and with sound judgment; or
b. The Purchaser’s demonstrated behavior within the CoaX deposit-holder community is rude, abusive, or otherwise adversely impacting others in the community, including CoaX staff. Following such termination, CoaX will refund the Deposit to The Purchaser within forty-five days.
