Each Grantor ratifies its authorization for the Collateral Agent to have filed such financing statements, continuation statements or amendments prior to the date hereof.


(4) Each Grantor agrees that at any time and from time to time, at its sole cost and expense, upon the written request of the Collateral Agent, it will promptly and duly execute, deliver, file and record (as applicable) any and all such further agreements, certificates, instruments and documents as may be necessary or which the Collateral Agent may reasonably request in order to create, preserve, perfect (or better perfect), confirm or validate the security interests in the Collateral or to enable the Collateral Agent to obtain the full benefits of this Security Agreement and the other Security Documents or to enable the Collateral Agent lawfully to enforce any of its rights, powers, and remedies hereunder or thereunder with respect to any of the Collateral (provided that the Collateral Agent shall not exercise any of such remedies except upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default), including, without limitation, to enable the Collateral Agent to comply at any time with the Assignment of Claims Act in respect of an assignment of (i) the Pledged Receivable owing to the Company under the Air Mobility Command Agreement or (ii) any Pledged Receivable owing to North American under a North American AMC Agreement, it being acknowledged and agreed that the Collateral Agent is expressly authorized to unilaterally exercise or cause to be exercised any and all rights of a Secured Party hereunder or under applicable law, including the filing of UCC financing statements (or any amendment thereto) in respect of any of the Collateral.

5


rights of a transferee under Section 5-114(e) of the UCC; and (vi) deliver to the Collateral Agent evidence that all other action that the Collateral Agent may deem reasonably necessary in order to perfect and protect the security interest created by such Grantor in the Collateral under this Agreement has been taken.


(5) Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, unless requested by the Collateral Agent upon the occurrence and during the continuance of a Specified Default or Event of Default, the Grantors shall not be obligated to perfect the security interest of the Collateral Agent in any of the following Collateral: (i) any Deposit Account or Securities Account with respect to which the Grantors are not required to enter into a Control Agreement pursuant to Section 5.17 of the Loan Agreement; (ii) any Pledged Real Property which has a net book value of less than $200,000; and (iii) any Motor Vehicles other than a Motor Vehicle acquired after the date of this Agreement at a cost in excess of $200,000.


(6) It is hereby further agreed that any and all property described or referred to in the Granting Clause hereof which is hereafter acquired by the Grantors shall ipso facto, and without any other conveyance, assignment or act on the part of the Grantors or the Collateral Agent, become and be subject to the Lien herein granted as fully and completely as though specifically described herein.


(7) Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in no event shall the security interest granted under this Security Agreement attach to any (i) Excluded Assets or (ii) any right in any agreement (A) the grant of a security interest in which would violate the agreement under which such right arises if such Grantor has failed to obtain a waiver or other relief from such provision (except to the extent such provision would be rendered ineffective under Sections 9-406, 9-407, 9-408 or 9-409 of the UCC), so long as such Grantor has used commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such waiver or other relief (without obligation to incur more than immaterial costs or expenses in connection with such commercially reasonable efforts) or (B) to the extent that the pledge or assignment of such agreement requires the consent of any third party, unless such third party has consented thereto (except to the extent such consent requirement would be rendered ineffective under Sections 9-406, 9-407, 9-408 or 9-409 of the UCC), so long as such Grantor has used commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such consent (without obligation to incur more than immaterial costs or expenses in connection with such commercially reasonable efforts); provided, however, that such security interest shall attach immediately at such time as the relevant provision or requirement is no longer applicable and, to the extent such agreement is severable, shall attach immediately to any portion of such agreement that does not result in any of the consequences specified in (A) or (B) above.
