LET´S TALK OF AEROPHILATELY FEPA CONGRESS 13 SEPTEMBER 2014 LUGANO (SWITZERLAND) FERNANDO ARANAZ
THE CURRENT SITUATION
What happens with the Aerophilately? What do you do with the Aerophilately?
In the latest International Philatelic Exhibitions it is having problems with some exhibits of Aerophilately
Aerophilately exhibits are transferred to other Classes AND/OR Exhibits of other Classes are transferred to Aerophilately
PHILAKOREA 2014 Glen Stafford (Australia) Nicaragua Air Mail (The early years) AE to TR
SALON PLANÈTE TIMBRES PARIS 2014 Nicolaos Karanikolas (Greece) The “Inselpost” overprint 1944/45 PH to AE
BRASILIANA 2013 Francisco D´Amico (Venezuela) Venezuela: The first air mail TR to AE Jose Alberto Junges (Brasil) Varig PH to AE
BRASILIANA 2013 AUTRALIA 2013 McFarlane, Andrew (U.S.A.) The 1928 U.S.A. Beacon Air Mail Stamp AE to TR
The question is inmediate: and this why it happens?
In my opinion, there are two problems: a)A severe interpretation and /or application of article 3 of the SREV for Aerophilately. b) We have more than 30 years doing the same thing…….
THE HISTORY AND THE PAST
About 1960 started to appear the Classes of Competition and the Commissions as we currently know them
The Commission for AIR MAIL COLLECTIONS was created in the FIP Congress of Munich (1966)
The first regulations for AIR MAIL COLLECTIONS was presented in the FIP Congress in Madrid (1975); was approved in the FIP Congress in Philadelphia (1976); and was published for the first time in the publicity brochure of the ITALIA 76 (Milano)
COMMISSION AIR MAIL to AERO Van der Moortel (Belgium)(1967-¿1975?) Theodor Dahinden (Switzerland) Pierre Saulgrain (France) =================================== Francisco Lemos da Silveira (Portugal) (¿1975?-1992/93) =================================== Egil Thomassen (Norway)( )
THE NEW REGULATIONS
SREV of AEROPHILATELY Article 2: Competitive Exhibits An Aerophilatelic exhibit is composed essentially of postal documents transmitted by Air bearing evidence of having been flown Stamps have disapeared!
SREV of AEROPHILATELY Article 3: Principles of Exhibit Composition Aerophilately represents a study of the development of air mail services and a collection of documets pertaining to such development Collection of documents, no stamps
An Aerofilatelic exhibit has therefore as basic contents: 1. Postal documents dispatched by air 2. Official and semi-official stamps issued especially for use on Airmail, in mint or used state, but principally on cover 3. All types of postal and other marks, vignettes and labels relating to aerial transport
4. Items connected with a particular means of aerial transport, not conveyed through a postal service but deemed important to the development of air mail 5. Leaflets, messages and newspaper dropped from the air, as a way of normal postal delivery or on the occasion of postal services interrupted by unforeseen events.
6. Mail recovered from aircraft accidents or incidents
WHAT REALLY HAPPENS IN THE PRACTICE?
Some Jurors in a severe application of the SREV of Aerophilately “penalize” in Treatment those exhibits showing stamps. Or if they think that there are “many stamps”, it is transferred to TR
They correctly apply the SREV and Guidelines of Aerophilately MAKE THAT IS VERY CLEAR But there are outstanding exhibits who feel little appreciated
Marta Villarroel de Peredo (Bolivia) Bolivia Air Mail Enrique Bialikamien (Costa Rica) Costa Rica-Development of Air Mail Mario Ravasi (Switzerland) Scadta-Development of Colombian Air Mail
Others who have already suffered the problem, put the exhibit directly in TR Santiago Cruz (Colombia) Scadta´s First Issues- A Traditional Approach to Airmail Stamps
WE ARE GOING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM
It is difficult to understand the Aerophilately without the stamps that made it possible
As member of the FIP Board responsible of the Commission of Aerophilately I have proposed, initially, the possibility of use Air Mail stamps, with three subclasses (as it has been done in Postal History) 1-Pure Aerophilately – only flown covers 2-Air Mail with stamps and their use 3-Routing marks, OAT, AV2
I have asked the opinion of the FEPA Member Federations about this matter. Through J.R.Moreno I have received several answers: Austria, Croacia, Cyprus, Germany, Monaco, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom…..
The Commission of Aerophilately also is working on the matter. In the Meeting of the Commission in Seoul (Korea) on Monday 11 August, Ross Wood made a presentation “Air Mail Stamps as a Sub-Class of Aerophilately”
The FIP Board in their Meeting in Seoul (Korea) on Wednesday 13 August, designate two Sub-Classes in Aero exhibits which allow for a wider use of Air Mail stamps. The FIP Board feels this will be of great general benefit for Aerphilately
This is a ver high priority for the FIP Board and we would like to be able to approve the new (revised) SREV in our next Meeting in December in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
SREV of AEROPHILATELY Article 2: Competitive Exhibits An Aerophilatelic exhibit is composed essentially of postal documents transmitted by Air bearing evidence of having been flown and also of stamps and proofs and essays relating to the Air Mail and Aerophilately
There are two Subclasses of Competitive Exhibits Subclass a) Covers flown Subclass b) Air Mail stamps and their use in Air Mail service
SREV of AEROPHILATELY Article 3: Principles of Exhibit Composition Aerophilately represents a study of (the development of) air mail services, stamps related to airmail, and a collection of documets pertaining to such development
An Aerofilatelic exhibit has therefore as basic contents: Subclass a) Covers flown 1. Postal documents dispatched by air 2. (before 3) All types of postal and other marks, vignettes and labels relating to aerial transport
3. (before 4) Items connected with a particular means of aerial transport, not conveyed through a postal service but deemed important to the development of air mail 4. (before 4) Leaflets, messages and newspaper dropped from the air, as a way of normal postal delivery or on the occasion of postal services interrupted by unforeseen events.
5. (before 6) Mail recovered from aircraft accidents or incidents
Subclass b) Air Mail Stamps and usage 1. (before 2) Official and semi-official stamps issued especially for use on Airmail, in mint or used state, but (principally) also on cover. 2. Any proofs and essays associated with the issues of the Air Mail stamps.
