The CIMA standard as contained in [FAI Section 10 annex 6|] lays down a standard format which all approved flight recorders must provide.

This format is based on the *FAI IGC format* as devised by the [International Gliding Commission of the FAI|] and the files are always named with the suffix *.igc*

There are many different free and commercial softwares which will read .igc format files.  Some examples are:
* [Oziexplorer|]
* [SeeYou|]
* [Coutraci|]

Jose Luis Esteban has also devised [MicroFlap|MicroFLAP] which is specially designed to analyse flights in Microlight competitions.
