You may not know but the FAI have a sporting code that covers human powered aircraft (Part 11) at http://www.fai.org/system/files/sc11_1992.pdf. Section 1.2.3.4 states “In the case of distance records, at some point during the flight the aircraft and crew must exceed a height of 2 m above the ground.” It makes me wonder how many HPA flights would be recognized by the FAI including many flights by SUMPAC and Puffin.
