A delivery position can be reserved with a deposit of $5000.00. This amount will be applied to the purchase price of the aircraft and is non-refundable.

The purchaser will receive an order form and be asked to specify what options he(she) wants on his(her) plane. A final price will be determined and agreed upon at that time, and the order will be signed by both the purchaser and an officer of ACAC.

When the delivery position reaches the assembly line, the purchaser will be asked to pay an additional $25,000.00 toward the cost of the aircraft. This installment is also non-refundable.

The purchaser will be notified when his(her) plane is in final paint, and told an approximate completion date. The purchaser will be notified again when it is in final testing and when to expect delivery. The purchaser has fourteen days to remit the balance, or forfeit the aircraft. Failure by purchaser to accept airplane as agreed when notified by seller forfeits the deposit as liquidated damages for breach of said acceptance and thereupon seller has the right to otherwise dispose of the aircraft with no further liability of purchaser to seller, or seller to purchaser with regard to aircraft agreement.

Seller will not be held liable for any delay in making delivery for any cause whatsoever; provided, however, if seller should fail to make delivery of airplane within six (6) months after promised date of delivery, purchaser shall have the right to demand return of said deposit and forfeit delivery of the aircraft.  Thus, canceling the order.

All terms and conditions stated in all franchise agreements between seller and purchaser shall apply in full to this order.

Subject to changes in standard equipment without notice, the list price of the aircraft on this order is guaranteed fixed to the extent that if the list price is increased prior to delivery, the purchaser will be notified and shall have the option of canceling this order within five business days of such notice and receiving refund of his deposit in full amount.

If alterations to the order are made by the purchaser after the agreement is signed, the guaranteed price will be adjusted to reflect the change in options.   Also, ACAC is not liable for guaranteeing that the said changes will be made if these changes are made after the initial signed agreement. If a change is requested and not made to the aircraft upon delivery, no charge for the change will be incurred by the purchaser.

ACAC warrants each new aircraft and part thereof manufactured by it, together with all new equipment and accessories installed or sold by it to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of six (6) months after delivery to the original retail purchaser or first user.

The repair or replacement of parts under this warranty will be made by ACAC at no charge for parts, removal and installation labor, and/or for repair labor. Replacements under warranty are warranted for the balance of the original warranty period.

Aircraft purchased from dealers local to them (in the state region allotted to the dealer by ACAC) receive twelve (12) months of warranty instead of the standard six (6) months.
