The 2016 CIMA Plenary took place on 10 -12 November in Kaohsiung (TPE), generously hosted by George Cherng and the Chinese Taipei Aviators League.
FAI Sports & Events Director Markus Haggeney joined 24 delegates, alternates and observers at the Grand Hi Lai hotel to discuss a wide range of topics and amendments to the Sporting Code.
The programme concluded with a visit to the Pintung Airpark, the local centre for paramotoring, complete with flying displays and the chance to meet and mix with local paramotor enthusiasts.
Meetings started on Thursday morning with a CIMA Bureau meeting for final preparations and to consider last minute items. The microlight and paramotor subcommittees then met in the afternoon; the meeting minutes will be available soon through the FAI website.
The plenary agenda is available on the FAI website.
The weekend was dominated by very constructive discussions on a wide range of topics, in particular the FAI strategic plan to develop air sports in order to meet the demands of media, host cities and sponsors.
