<--   8 Ann Welch Diploma candidates in 2014-2015   -->  
Ann Welch Diplomas are awarded by the CIMA Plenary. One was awarded annually from 2006 onwards. As from 2014, two may be awarded: One to the pilot or crew of a microlight and one to the pilot or crew of a paramotor who made the most meritorious flight which resulted in a microlight or paramotor World record claim ratified since the last CIMA plenary meeting.

The dates World records were ratified by FAI are not publicly available, this list shows records first imported to the BMAA records site between 4 Dec 2014 and 5 Nov 2015. Although likely to be a good indication it cannot be a definitive list of award candidates given to the Plenary to consider and is published here as a guide only.
