APPENDIX 1: FREQUENTLY ASKED


QUESTIONS
Can I purchase outside of this contract?
Yes provided that normal procurement rules are followed. It is strongly recommended that
prices be checked against this price schedule.

If the contract is Non Mandatory why should I use it?


This contract has a number of checks and balances in place such as Insurances, assurance
that CASA requirements are met, minimum pilot experience and qualifications, maximum
prices, contract management and contractors adherence to general conditions of contract.

How do I pick the right aircraft?


The size of aircraft that is suitable for your needs is dependent upon a number of factors and
not just the number of seats for example:

Weight of passengers and luggage (Payload);

Distance travelled The further the plane travels the more fuel it needs to take on board
hence more payload less passengers and/or luggage;

Any night travel?


When in doubt ask the Contractor.

Savings Tip:

Prices shown in the Price Schedule are


maximum allowable prices. (Where
Contractors are requested to provide
quotations they may offer lower rates
than the rates accepted for the Contract
but not higher)
