The Products and Services mentioned herein will primarily be sold, offered, performed, or subcontracted by the customer service division of Honda Aircraft Company, LLC.
Customer refers to the party that purchases Products and/or Services from Honda Aircraft.
Product(s) are all the goods offered or supplied by Honda Aircraft, including but not limited to, aircraft parts, machinery or equipment, tools, accessories, printed material (manuals, drawings, etc.), web portal access, or any electronic data displayed and/or downloadable via the portal or transmitted electronically.

No order placed with Honda Aircraft shall be considered as accepted until officially acknowledged by Honda Aircraft. Honda Aircraft expressly objects to any terms or conditions in Customer’s purchase order, quotation or other documents modifying the General Terms and Conditions of Products and Services. Any such modifications will not be binding unless signed by Honda Aircraft. Issuance of a purchase order shall not represent acceptance of any terms or conditions previously specified by Customer in any request, correspondence, or otherwise, except to the extent that the same shall be in accordance herewith. Receipt of the Products or Services by Customer, or any agent, representative, or designee of Customer, shall constitute the Customer’s acceptance of Products and/or Services, regardless of whether Customer has purported to object to or to reject any or all of the items contained within these terms and conditions. In all communications, Honda Aircraft and Customer may employ their forms, including but not limited to purchase orders, confirmations, or other correspondence between the parties, but nothing in those forms or correspondence will be construed to modify or amend these terms and conditions, and, in the case of any conflict, Honda Aircraft’s General Terms and Conditions of Products and Services will control.

Special Terms and Conditions for Shipments of Products and/or Services out of Florida:
Florida State Tax does not apply to Products and/or Services imported, produced or manufactured within the state of Florida for export. Honda Aircraft and Customer’s intent to export Products and/or Services is insufficient to establish that Products and/or Services are not subject to tax in Florida.
Under Florida State Law, Products and/or Services are considered to be imported, produced or manufactured for export only if the importer, producer or manufacturer:
a. Either delivers it to a licensed exporter for exportation a common carrier for shipment out-of-state; or,
b. Sends it by U.S. mail to an out-of-state destination.
Under Florida State Law, Honda Aircraft is not required to collect tax if:
1. Honda Aircraft commits the property to the exportation process at the time of sale; and,
2. The exportation process remains continuous and unbroken until the property is exported from Florida (Note: Delivery of Products and/or Services to a location in Florida for subsequent export from Florida is insufficient to establish documentary evidence that the property sold was irrevocably committed to the exportation process.)
Payment terms are Payment In Advance in United States currency to Honda Aircraft, unless Credit Terms are approved through Honda Aircraft’s Customer Service Finance department or other terms of payment are expressly agreed to in writing by Honda Aircraft. Honda Aircraft may require payment in advance of all costs associated with transactions including but not limited to transportation charges, core fees, and administration fees. All payments made are subject to verification of receipt prior to releasing any Products or providing any Services. If any other related charges should arise post-transaction, Honda Aircraft will invoice Customer and Customer will arrange immediate payment without any deduction. The withholding of any payment or set-off against Honda Aircraft is not permitted. In the event any invoice remains unpaid for more than fifteen (15) calendar days after the date such invoice is issued, a collection cost of eight percent (8%) per annum or the maximum legally allowed percentage will be applied in addition to other applicable collection costs, including but not limited to collection agency fees, attorney fees, liens, and court fees. If necessary and allowable by law, Honda Aircraft reserves the right to file a lien (mechanic, part, or aircraft) with a government entity on Products or Services performed.
Delivery terms are Ex Works (Incoterms 2010), Honda Aircraft’s designated facility. Identification of the method of shipment is Customer’s responsibility. Unless Customer provides clear instructions with the order, method of shipment will be at Honda Aircraft’s discretion. Honda Aircraft will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid or minimize any delay in delivery. Customer order may only be modified or cancelled if agreed upon in writing by Honda Aircraft. Customer will be responsible for any modification or cancellation fees, including but not limited to, supplier, material, tooling, production, transportation, or administration costs.

Any prepayment by Honda Aircraft of such transportation related charges will be passed on to customer for immediate payment.

Any Customer specific documentation requirements, other than a packing sheet and/or conformity statement, must be identified and transmitted with the order and agreed to by Honda Aircraft. Customer shall notify Honda Aircraft in writing of any shortages or lack of conformity (whether Product or documentation) within two (2) calendar days after receipt of Products or Services. After this date, the Products and Services shall be deemed satisfactorily accepted by the Customer. Any shortages or lack of conformity, which should reasonably have been discovered by the Customer upon receipt, shall not warrant a claim against Honda Aircraft. If duplicate documentation is required after the two (2) calendar day period has expired, Customer may be required to return Product(s) in their original, unopened condition with all documentation at their own expense in addition to any applicable fees that may apply.
Customer may submit a written request which Honda Aircraft may accept at its sole discretion for the return of Products. If the request is accepted, Honda Aircraft will provide a Return Material Authorization (RMA) approval number.

Exchange transactions will require that cores be returned within fifteen (15) calendar days of Customer receipt of the exchange Product. Eligible cores must be from the same manufacturer and same dash number (current configuration) as the exchange Product purchased. Other configurations may be acceptable, but must be pre-approved by Honda Aircraft. Cores must be accompanied by a removal tag identifying component details, life status, and nature of defect. When relevant, historical service records must also be provided. All cores must be returned using the Honda Aircraft provided return shipping label. If core and all required documentation have not been returned within fifteen (15) calendar days, a core invoice will be issued. If core is returned after the issuance of the core invoice, a 20% reduction in the core credit will be applied for each seven (7) calendar days past due until core is returned. If core return is rejected by the repair station for any reason other than normal operating use, a core fee may be invoiced to the Customer.
Rental Part Transactions
Rental transactions will require Product to be returned within ten (10) calendar days after Customer receives their repaired or overhauled Product. If rental is not returned within ten (10) calendar days of returned unit receipt, additional rental fees of two (2) times the standard rental rate will be assessed until returned. No partial or pro-rated credit will be issued for late returns.
If a Product is received in a re-useable container, the returned Product should be returned in the same container. If Product is not returned in the same container, an invoice will be issued for the replacement cost of a new container in addition to an administrative fee not to exceed $500 USD.
If Product was invoiced within the previous thirty (30) calendar days, Customer may submit a written request for the return of unused Products.
Upon receipt of returned Products, Honda Aircraft will determine final acceptance only if all the following conditions are met: (i) Products are returned within the prescribed timeframe; and, (ii) Products are unused, undamaged, and in original packaging with all original documentation that accompanied Product(s). If accepted by Honda Aircraft, Customer shall be credited for such Returned Products for the original invoiced value with a deduction of a 20% re-stocking fee; minimum $100 USD and maximum $8,000 USD. Products returned without appropriate documentation are subject to an additional 10% re-stocking fee if Product is deemed acceptable by Honda Aircraft to return to inventory. Applicable re-certification fees may apply and are not considered part of the re-stock fee. Packing, crating, expediting, shipping charges, or other administrative fees will not be credited. Products received and not meeting the above conditions may be rejected and held for Customer disposition. If Customer does not respond within thirty (30) calendar days, rejected Products will be considered abandoned and will be dispositioned at Honda Aircraft’s sole discretion. Consumables, hazardous material, standard hardware, or any Products with shelf-life or calendar life limits will not be considered for return.
New or exchange Products supplied by Honda Aircraft are generally warranted to be free from defects in workmanship and/or materials for a period of one (1) year or five hundred (500) flight hours, whichever occurs first, from the date of delivery to the Customer.
Services provided by Honda Aircraft, or any third party subcontracted by Honda Aircraft, are warranted for material and workmanship warranties on efforts conducted as part of the Service, for a period of six (6) months or two hundred fifty (250) flight hours from the date Services were provided, whichever occurs first.
In the event that the Product or Services are warranted by a supplier or any third party subcontracted by Honda Aircraft for less than the period listed above, the lesser warranty period shall prevail. Honda Aircraft’s obligation under this warranty is solely limited to replacing or repairing Products shown to be defective in either workmanship or materials. Honda Aircraft shall have the sole discretion to either repair or replace such Product or Services.
