Advanced Notice for FAI/CIVL Records

From the Sporting Code:

3.3.1. Advance notice

Advance notice is required for all record attempts, except at the competitions
where FAI officials are present and proper arrangements have been made to
control the attempt. The pilot must make the record attempt declaration to his
NAC prior to taking off via email or electronic means.

Well at first glance, this seems to be a nice evolution of the process, unless
you consider the implication that you must have internet/cell access to declare
a task (For sure, not something that I have at L+13 in Washington State).  It
also assumes your NAC has put in place a process that complies with the Sporting
Code  section.

I also find curious, this amendment fails (or eliminates) the use of an Official
Observer and the overseeing of a record attempt, or at least overseeing the
“declaration” (since there is no additional wordings in the section that would
suggest that the previous alternate procedure can be used).

This is a substantial change in the procedure, going from "No notification is
required for a record attempt" to "Advance notice is required for all record
