    • Major issues (continued):

      • 13 October: ASC Presidents meeting, Belgrade

        • FAI President states unequivocally ASCs do have control of their assets - Guaranteed.

        • New ideas: delete CASI, existing VPs stay, RVPs are added.

          • Could not have been achieved without CIMA delegates lobbying.

        • Phase 1 of change of commission name – ACCEPTED

        • AOB: IPC - Cost of Medals - priced in CHF, complaints from organizers; Resolution:  Pressure on FAI to seek cheaper supply of medals. (also might apply to our small medals problem)

        • Unanimous resolution: CASI supports staying as it is, but appeal board is separated out.


    Agenda of the annual meeting of the fai microlight paramotor commission lausanne switzerland

    Plenary 2011 Agenda

    Item 6 - CIMA Bureau report on its activity since the last plenary - continued

    • Major issues (continued):

      • 15-16 October: FAI General Conference, Belgrade

        • Budget – still some feeling from EB that ASCs are out of control – President forced to admit that ASCs have always been very prudent with their funds.

        • RVPs will be introduced incrementally (eg Asia and S. America first).

        • Expert Groups – next spring (or hopefully earlier).

        • Branding Guidelines – although directly affecting ASCs, first time they have seen it… (subsequent email to EB on 20 Oct. re. communication and consultation – no reply yet.)

        • President’s 3 ‘hot potatoes’

          • 1) Do away with CASI, give its powers to ASC presidents meeting

          • 2) Statutes Working Group – Power grab by EB.

          • 3) Remove ASC votes in General Conference.

        • FAI Subscriptions: After some moaning about CHF being so strong, NACs agreed to 2% increase.

        • CIMA Commission name change: Phase 2 (Statutes) ACCEPTED. (= automatic Bylaws too)

    Agenda of the annual meeting of the fai microlight paramotor commission lausanne switzerland

    No proposal to ‘remove’ anything from CIG:

    Simply a class overlap identical to overlaps which have existed without controversy for 30 years between FAI Class R and GAC classes C-x-a, C-x-ao or IGC class DM Etc.

    This decision was made after long and detailed discussion with the organizers, consultation with the FAI Secretary General and FAI Executive Board, and arises simply because NACs, although a majority voted in favour of this event at the CIMA Plenary, have not provided enough competitors to make the Championships financially viable.
