AIF for Airplanes and Balloons

Last Updated on 28 Dec 18.

Release Notes:  The Pre-flight Risk Assessment Worksheets in both the AIF and AIF-G have been changed.  This change removes the Wind Chill Chart and replaces it with a simple outside air temperature based risk assessment.  The current version of contents page is also updated as required.  The CAP electronic risk assessment process is also being changed effective 7 Jan 2019.  As a result, these pages should be inserted in all AIF binders on or as soon as possible after that date.
