The rules for championships, records and awards in microlights and paramotors are established in Section 10 of the FAI Sporting Code .
The Section 10 sub-committee performs the following functions:
All proposals made before the plenary deadline will be included in the agenda for the 2024 plenary meeting.
Only CIMA delegates may submit proposals. Anyone else should submit their proposal to their delegate first. The full list of delegates is on the FAI website.
The amendment scheme operates the same as it has done for many years, but since 2010 they should be placed here on the wiki by delegates themselves.
Proposals must include:
1) The number of the affected paragraph (or where it should go, if it is something new).
2) The old text.
3) the new text.
4) The reason for the proposed change.
Once the submission deadline is reached, comment from the S10 Sub-Committee is added and all proposals become part of the Plenary Agenda.
Changes of wording in the multi-lingual and limited available time frame of the Plenary have been shown to have unintended results, therefore each proposal will be put to the vote in its exact wording at the CIMA Plenary meeting on the basis of a YES or a NO.
Proposals affecting Microlights are discussed and voted upon by the Microlight committee, proposals affecting Paramotors are discussed and voted upon by the Paramotor committee.
While delegates will have an opinion on the merits of each proposal, before the deadline they are encouraged to make comments on the wording and layout of any proposal they see as not being understandable or might have unforeseen ‘secondary’ effects should it be voted to be included in S10.
