A Section 10 Editorial Panel consists of several elected members who have the responsibility of updating and evolving the rules in Section 10, with a view to drive the sport in the right direction.
The membership of this Editorial Panel may consist of Delegates but it would also be desirable to bring on board experienced competitors, competition organisers or Team leaders who have the first hand knowledge and expertise needed and who can be committed to do the job.
The Editorial Panel is also a point of contact for anyone who wishes to propose changes to the rules but who may be experiencing difficulties in using the usual method because of a lack of representation from their delegate, a poor grasp of the English language, or not enough knowledge of the formal procedures presently required.
The Panel also aims to receive a thorough debriefing from the latest world or continental championship(s) and from other successful National events to address any encountered issues, with proposals for remedy at the following plenary meeting.
Naturally, Jury members, Stewards and Team leaders can play a big part in the feedback process.
The current procedure for proposing changes to section 10 is proving to be difficult and restrictive for some delegates, and pilots have to rely on their delegates for representation. A good knowledge of the English language is required which is a problem for many countries. This proposal is about removing any barrier that may prevent the evolution of our sport and to harness all the good ideas that are prevailing in successful National events.
