Since the 2013 Plenary, the CIVL Paragliding Committee worked hard to implement the Plenary decision on the new CIVL EN Competition Class for paragliders and define realistic requirements. By now our work has progressed to a stage where we feel the definition is sound and complete. But before presenting it to the CIVL delegates to vote on it, we are now seeking feedback from anybody who cares outside of CIVL.

6 Category 1 Events will be organised in 2016. No bid has been received so far although the deadline for them was October 22. This is only half surprising as the deadline used to be much later, 2 months before the Plenary i.s.o. 4 now, as implemented by the 2013 Plenary. CIVL obviously did not communicate enought on this change. Apologies...

Following problems with pilots having been fined by the police at landing after free-flying, FAI and CIVL have been in contact with the Austrian Aero-club.
The Austrian Aero-club is working for solutions to what seems to be a local problem for some free-flyers.
For official competitions there is no problem as the current law allows pilots with foreign licence to fly.
