WARRANT EXCHANGE AGREEMENT
This Warrant Exchange Agreement (this “Agreement”) is made and entered into as of December 28th, 2023 (the “Effective Date”), by and among Jet.AI Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and _________ (the “Holder” and, together with the Company, the “parties”).
WHEREAS, the Holder currently owns warrants (collectively, the “Existing Warrants”), each of which is exercisable to purchase one common share of the Company at $11.50, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”);
WHEREAS, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Company and the Holder desire to cancel and retire 807,851 of Holder’s Existing Warrants in exchange for 807,851 shares of Common Stock (collectively, the “Exchange Shares”); and
WHEREAS, the exchange of the Existing Warrants for the Exchange Shares (the “Exchange”) is being made in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (together with the rules and regulations thereunder, the “Securities Act”).
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the agreements set forth below, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
Section 1.1 Exchange of Existing Warrants. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, the Holder hereby conveys, assigns, transfers and surrenders the Existing Warrants to the Company and, in exchange, the Company shall cancel the Existing Warrants and issue the Exchange Shares to the Holder. In connection with the Exchange, the Holder hereby relinquishes all rights, title and interest in the Existing Warrants (including any claims the Holder may have against the Company related thereto other than for receipt of the Exchange Shares) and assigns the same to the Company. The issuance of the Exchange Shares to the Holder will be made without registration of such Exchange Shares under the Securities Act, in reliance upon the exemption therefrom provided by Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act and accordingly, the Exchange Shares will be issued by the Company to the Holder without any restrictive legends.
Section 1.2 Issuance of Exchange Shares. Within one (1) business day after the execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Company and delivery of the Existing Warrants by the Holder, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause its transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (the “Transfer Agent”), to issue to the Holder the Exchange Shares as soon as practicable thereafter, and shall cause the Exchange Shares to be transmitted to the Holder by crediting the Holder’s Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) account through DTC’s Deposit/Withdrawal at Custodian (“DWAC”) system pursuant to the Holder’s instructions as set forth in the Holder’s signature page hereto, and (ii) the Holder shall deliver, or caused to be delivered, to the Transfer Agent, the Existing Warrants from their DTC account through the DWAC system for the Exchange, and such Existing Warrants shall be deemed automatically cancelled in full and of no force and effect.
REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS OF THE HOLDER
The Holder hereby makes the following representations, warranties and covenants, each of which is true and correct on the date hereof, and shall survive the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby to the extent set forth herein:

(b) The Holder has all requisite power, authority and capacity to execute and deliver this Agreement, to perform its obligations hereunder, and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.

Section 2.2 Valid and Enforceable Agreement; Authorization. This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by the Holder and, assuming due execution and delivery by the Company, constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Holder, enforceable against the Holder in accordance with its terms, except that such enforcement may be subject to (a) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting or relating to the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and (b) general principles of equity.
Section 2.3 Section 3(a)(9). The Holder understands that the Exchange Shares are being offered and issued in reliance on specific provisions of federal and state securities laws, specifically Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act, and not pursuant to a registration statement of the Company, and that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgments and understandings of the Holder set forth herein for purposes of qualifying for exemptions from registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
Section 2.4 Title to Warrants. The Holder owns and holds, beneficially and of record, the entire right, title, and interest in and to its Existing Warrants, free and clear of any Liens (as defined below). The Holder has the full power and authority to transfer and dispose of the Existing Warrants and will deliver such Existing Warrants free and clear of any Lien other than restrictions under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws and except as set forth herein the Holder has not, in whole or in part, (i) assigned, transferred, hypothecated, pledged or otherwise disposed of the Existing Warrants or its rights in such Existing Warrants, or (ii) given any person or entity any transfer order, power of attorney, vote, plan, pending proposal or other right of any nature whatsoever with respect to such Existing Warrants which would limit the Holder’s power to transfer the Existing Warrants hereunder. As used herein, “Liens” shall mean any security or other property interest or right, claim, lien, pledge, option, charge, security interest, contingent or conditional sale, or other title claim or retention agreement, interest or other right or claim of third parties, whether perfected or not perfected, voluntarily incurred or arising by operation of law, and including any agreement (other than this Agreement) to grant or submit to any of the foregoing in the future.
Section 2.5 Non-Contravention. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Holder and the consummation by the Holder of the transactions contemplated hereby do not and will not (i) result in any violation of the provisions of the organizational documents of the Holder or (ii) constitute or result in a breach, violation, conflict or default under any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan agreement or other agreement or instrument to which the Holder is a party or by which the Holder is bound or to which any of the property or assets of the Holder is subject, or any statute, order, rule or regulation of any court or governmental agency or body having jurisdiction over the Holder or any of its properties or cause the acceleration or termination of any obligation or right of the Holder, except in the case of clause (ii) above for such breaches, conflicts, defaults, rights or violations which would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to materially adversely affect the ability of the Holder to perform its obligations hereunder.
Section 2.6 Investment Decision.
(a) (i) The Holder is a sophisticated investor acquiring the Exchange Shares in the ordinary course of its business and has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of investing in the Exchange Shares and has so evaluated the merits and risks of investing in the Exchange Shares, (ii) the Holder is able to bear the entire economic risk of investing in the Exchange Shares, (iii) the Holder is investing in the Exchange Shares with a full understanding of all of the terms, conditions and risks of such an investment and willingly assume those terms, conditions and risks and (iv) the Holder has not relied on any statement or other information provided by any person concerning the Company, the Exchange or the Exchange Shares.
(b) The Holder acknowledges that an investment in the Exchange Shares involves a high degree of risk, and the Exchange Shares are, therefore, a speculative investment. The Holder acknowledges that the terms of the Exchange have been established by negotiation between the Company and the Holder. The Holder acknowledges that the Company has not given any investment advice, rendered any opinion or made any representation to the Holder about the advisability of this decision or the potential future value of any of the Existing Warrants. THE HOLDER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT, BY EXCHANGING THE EXISTING WARRANTS FOR COMMON SHARES PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE HOLDER WILL NOT BENEFIT FROM ANY FUTURE APPRECIATION IN THE MARKET VALUE OF THE EXISTING WARRANTS.
(c) The Holder has been given full and adequate access to information relating to the Company, including its business, finances and operations as the Holder has deemed necessary or advisable in connection with the Holder’s evaluation of the Exchange. The Holder has not relied upon any representations or statements made by the Company or its agents, officers, directors, employees or stockholders in regard to this Agreement or the basis thereof. The Holder has sought such accounting, legal and tax advice as it has considered necessary to make an informed investment decision with respect to its acquisition of the Exchange Shares and is not relying on the Company or any of its affiliates for any such advice. The Holder has had the opportunity to review the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Holder and its advisors, if any, have been afforded the opportunity to ask questions of the Company. The Holder has made an independent decision to exchange its Existing Warrants for Exchange Shares and is relying solely on its own accounting, legal and tax advisors, and not on any statements of the Company or any of its agents or representatives, for such accounting, legal and tax advice with respect to its acquisition of the Exchange Shares and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
(d) The Holder is not (i) an “affiliate” of the Company (as defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act) or (ii) the “beneficial owner” (as that term is defined under the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) of more than 10% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, assuming that the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock are as set forth on the cover page of its most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Section 2.7 No Additional Consideration. The Holder is not providing anything of value for the Exchange Shares other than the Existing Warrants.
Section 2.8 No Remuneration. Neither the Holder nor anyone acting on the Holder’s behalf has paid or given any person a commission or other remuneration directly or indirectly in connection with or in order to solicit or facilitate the Exchange.
