d) I agree that I am liable for the costs of repairing damage other than fair wear and tear which occurs to any glider owned or controlled by Central Coast Soaring Club Inc. of which I am Pilot in Command. My period of responsibility includes hangaring, ground handling, towing and flying of the glider.
In determining the costs of any such repairs, I understand and agree that the following provisions shall apply:-
The Committee of Central Coast Soaring Club Inc. shall determine the costs of repair and such costs shall be binding except that I may apply to the GFA for an independent valuation which may be substituted for the costs of repairs determined by the Committee of the Central Coast Soaring Club Inc. and I will also be responsible for the costs associated with the valuation.
The Committee of the Central Coast Soaring Club Inc. may waive or reduce the costs of repairs if in the opinion of the Committee I was not responsible or only partly responsible for the damage.
I will not be responsible for any damage if it occurs when flying a two seater glider with an Instructor on a training or checking flight (An Instructor would not normally be expected to pay for damage incurred as a result of a training exercise except in the case of extreme negligence.) .
The amount payable under the foregoing provisions will not exceed the relevant insurance excesses which are presently $1,000 for all Club Aircraft PLUS all transport and traveling costs necessarily incurred in having the repairs affected.
