  2. You will pay us a returnable bond of £5,000 which we will hold until you complete your solo training. This would be used towards repairs in the event of damage to the Gyrocopter and is fully refundable if there is no damage.
  3. You will pay a £450 contribution towards the additional insurance costs we incur as a result of allowing students to fly solo on our school machines. This is non-refundable and lasts for up to a year.
  4. Your maximum liabililty is limited to a total of £7,500 of which £5,000 will have been pre-paid (see item 1 above).
