Changes to Flight Recorder Approvals

Changes approved by the IGC Bureau in October 2011. GFAC recently agreed to delay the implementation date until October 1, 2012.

The changes were recommended due to significant security breaches of IGC files and the following Flight Recorders were determined by FAI to not be secure enough for World records. The FR's with reduced approval to Diamond will no longer be valid for Diploma or World Record flights.  We (FAI B&R Committe) still need to determine whether they will be usable for National (US) and State records. The FR's that show approval withdrawn will not be valid for any FAI badge or record.
