|CIMA is the International Microlight and Paramotor Commission of FAI (Commission Internationale de Micro-Aviation). CIMA stands for FAI's microlight and paramotor activities, in particular World Records and International Competitions are conducted under the direction of CIMA.
CIMA has a large number of delegates from around the World who meet annually at a Plenary meeting, usually in November.
Most CIMA decisions are made at Plenary meetings but much work goes on throughout the rest of the year. Sub-committees and working groups are appointed by the Plenary to do specific work and a [Bureau] consisting of a President, two vice Presidents and a secretary/treasurer is elected by the Plenary to represent CIMA outside of the Plenary.
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. For any other official information please refer to the CIMA page at the FAI portal .
Sub committees are permanent groups, the chairman and members are appointed or re-appointed annually by the CIMA Plenary.
