The changes are:
Primarily in Section 2.4 about the requirement for a Safety Director to be on the ground for
all competitions at all times to co-ordinate and manage safety issues.
In Section 2.9 a change of the Launch validity calculation to now use 1 minute rather than
the lengthy, and limiting 2 minutes currently used. FAI uses 30 seconds!
A revision to the Awards in Section 4 to make allowance for Class awards if there is no PG
Included two new Sections: 7. ‘Acro’ and 8. ‘Hike & Fly’ in recognition of the new disciplines
