The main purpose of this wiki is to facilitate the collaborative work of the Bureau and the different sub-committees and working groups, and to make their activity and results visible to the air sports community.

There are other uses as well, for example CIMA Delegates can enter national events in the [unofficial events calendar|Calendar] and make [World record corrections|World record corrections] since the data fields were changed in the FAI records database at the beginning of 2010.
