Response: Hellenic Aeronautical and Airsports Federation [ELAO] replies in document [ELAO/144/2014] that it points out that most of the incidents that AAIASB investigates [Paragliders] are related to incidents that have occurred by people who have nothing to do with ELAO, or the Schools operating under the supervision of its unions. Since paragliding flights are not exclusively conducted through ELAO clubs, and neither ELAO nor the clubs have the ability to control all flights [paragliding] in the Greek airspace, the actions we can do [ELAO] is limited to members or athletes of the ELAO clubs. The existing legal status is restrictive and the recent incident with the Paramotor Regulation, which we issued [ELAO] according to the competencies given to us, is a limiting example. The draft of this regulation has been filed also to HCAA two years now for procesings and commenting, no response has been received by [ELAO] than letters stating that we have unlawfully issued [the regulation draft] and at the same time prohibiting any aeronautical activity for that particular sport [paragliding]. [The Response will be evaluated by AAIASB soon]
