This editorial change was accepted by the 2014 Plenary
Richard Meredith-Hardy, CIMA President
Two Ann Welch Diplomas, one for Microlights & one for Paramotors.
2.2 THE ANN WELCH DIPLOMA (BL 12.11.2)
2.2.1 Ann Welch, for many years FAI Vice President and Editor of the FAI Bulletin, played leading international roles in the development not only of Microlight and Paramotor aviation, but also of Gliding and Hang-gliding. She was instrumental in creating the FAI Microlight and Paramotor Commission (CIMA) and formulating the Microlight and Paramotor sporting code. She worked tirelessly for many years in the cause of Microlight and Paramotor sport flying.
2.2.2 One Diploma may be awarded each year to the pilot or crew of a Microlight or Paramotor who in the opinion of CIMA made the most meritorious flight which resulted in a Microlight or Paramotor World record claim ratified in the year in question.
This is an editorial change because the proposal to FAI Executive Board to [amend FAI Bylaws] has been approved.
It is proposed to add 2.2.3 which simply explains the procedure for award as stated in bylaws which was not in S10 before.
