From: Chad Ring, NAR# 50652
Type of Proposal: Regular
Brief Summary of the Proposed Change: Eliminate showing altimeters at check in, as they will be seen post flight anyway. Syncs up with no motor check in.
State Logic and Intent of Change: No reason to show altimeter preflight, as they will be seen post flight. Makes check in a smoother and quicker process.
Effect, if any, on current competition and NAR records: Reduce the wait time for check in and task load for check in officer.
Exact wording for the rule revision as it should appear (include section#):
20.2.2 Check-In Procedure
The model of the altimeter will be noted on the competitor’s flight card. The safety check officer may request the “owner’s manual” for the altimeter if any questions arise concerning its operation or post flight readout.
