In the event of an accident I will not permit the aircraft to be moved unless expressly authorized by SMF or local, state, or federal authorities and will do all that I can to protect the aircraft and its equipment from further loss.
  9. Check the Hobbs Meter prior to starting the flight. Should the starting time not match the aircraft dispatch book, I will bring this to the attention of the front desk before starting the flight.

Cancellation fees specified in this agreement will be subtracted before any refunds are issued. Refunds will only be issued via check or wire (wire fees apply).

SECTION VI: LIABILITY RELEASE AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT

I, , hereby affirm that I am aware that flying and activities associated with flying have inherent and unforeseeable risks which may result in serious injury or death. I understand and agree that neither my instructor nor SMF, nor any of their respective employees, managers, officers, agents, contractors, or assigns, (hereafter referred to as “Released Parties”) may be held liable or responsible in any way for any injury, death, or other damages to me, my family, estate, heirs or assigns that may occur as a result of my participation in flying aircraft, flying in aircraft, flight instruction, aircraft rental, aircraft operations, ramp operations, or any associated activities, (hereafter referred to as Flight Activities), or as a result of the negligence of any party, including the Released Parties, whether passive or active.

I hereby personally assume all risks of these Flight Activities, whether foreseen or unforeseen. I, further release, exempt, and hold harmless the Released Parties from any claim or lawsuit by me, my family, estate, heirs, or assigns, arising out of my participation in Flight Activities including both claims arising during any course of training or after I obtain any pilot certification(s) or ratings.

I also understand that Flight Activities are physically demanding and that I must seek the ongoing care of a licensed and authorized Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) as necessary and that I will not hold Released Parties responsible for events resulting from my physical condition, limitations, or incapacitation.

I further state that I am of lawful age and legally competent to sign this liability release or that I have acquired the written consent of my parent or guardian.

I understand the terms herein are contractual and not merely recital, and that I have signed this document of my own free will and with the knowledge that I hereby waive my legal rights. I further agree if any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision may be severed from this agreement and that the remainder of this agreement shall then be construed as though the unenforceable provision had never been contained therein.

I,  BY THIS INSTRUMENT AGREE TO EXEMPT AND RELEASE MY INSTRUCTORS, SANTA MONICA FLYERS, AND ALL RELATED ENTITIES AS DEFINED ABOVE FROM ALL LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER FOR PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR WRONGFUL DEATH HOWEVER CAUSED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASED PARTIES, WHETHER PASSIVE OR ACTIVE.
