MIKE’S AEROCLASSICS WARRANTY
Mike’s AeroClassics warrants against defects in materials and workmanship of fabric repairs for a period of thirty (30) days from the date the aircraft is made available for delivery to Owner. Said warranty does not cover damages or defects caused by other factors such as “hangar rash,” weather damage (including hail), bird strikes, etc. Additionally, this warranty does not cover parts purchased on Owner’s behalf or work provided by subcontractors, and it is up to the Owner to obtain warranty coverage from those providers directly. If a defect in materials and/or workmanship is found, Mike’s AeroClassics may, at its option, repair the defect using the same materials, or if such are not available then materials of similar quality. Alternatively, in Mike’s AeroClassics discretion Mike’s AeroClassics may pay for Owner to have such repair made elsewhere. Such work if completed by Mike’s AeroClassics, shall, once completed, be covered by this warranty for thirty (30) days from date the repaired aircraft is available for delivery to Owner.
