FAI rules change proposals
From: Chuck Etherington
Hi All,
Please be aware that the 2017 CIAM Plenary meeting will be a substantive rules change cycle, meaning that new rules may be proposed and existing rules may be modified. At a minimum, I would expect to see some discussion about the current F1C motor run and the F1C RDT requirement. Below is an excerpt from the U.S. rules proposal process. Please note that although the deadline for proposal submission to the FFTSC Chairperson is Aug 1, I didn’t get a reminder published in a timely manner, so please consider Aug 15 as the target date. Ideally, possible proposals should be vetted among those with an interest and stake in the event and submitted as a group. I will be at the Jr. World Champs (off Line) until Aug 8 but will be available for help following that. Thanks.

1)     New rule suggestions, recommendations and proposals are to be carefully worded in simple but precise language. They should reference the rule(s) to be changed, if appropriate, and concisely explain the proposal and describe the rationale and benefits. If a completely new rule is being proposed, the location within the sporting code where the rule would be written should be identified. A form for this is available on the NFFS website.
2)     Rule proposals are to be sent to the chairperson of the US FAI Free Flight Team Selection Committee (FFTSC) before August 1.

Editor’s Note
While this post is directed to FAI sportsmen in the USA, it is a good heads up for flyer in other countries to get organized and follow their national procedures too if they have rule chnage proposals.
