A collegial association called "XPFR" is founded between the members of these statutes, for an unlimited period. It is governed by the law of July 1, 1901, the decree of August 16, 1901 and these statutes.
This association aims to help authors to create and distribute extensions or tools for the X-Plane flight simulator.
The association's initial registered office is at Mr Jean Barthet, 7 avenue des Platanes, 31700 Blagnac. It can be transferred by simple decision of the collegiate council.
The association manages a website (http://xpfr.org), a privileged means of distributing productions in its name or in the name of its members.
It provides its members with a private forum dedicated to discussions on each current project, to the management of the association and its resources.
It has a mailing list by email to contact all members, even if they do not regularly participate in the forum.
It may engage in meetings specific to X-Plane or to other simulators, for example to make known X-Plane or the association itself, or any activity compatible with its goals.
(This list is neither exhaustive nor exhaustive).
The association is made up of:
An active member is any natural person who actively participates in the life of the association, after having been admitted as a member of the association by the collegiate council which decides on each application for admission presented.
The status of active member is tacitly renewable as long as the member participates in the life of the association.
A member who has not given any sign of life for 6 months will be contacted privately by a member of the collegiate council in order to find out what direction he wishes to take vis-à-vis the association: inactivity, departure ... At the same time, his personal access to the website will be disabled in order to avoid any uncontrollable intrusion in his absence. They will be reactivated on request from one of the members of the college council.
In the event of a complete lack of response, the board may decide to exclude the member, whether temporary or definitive. In the latter case, a membership request must be made again to join the group later.
An inactive member is any previously admitted member who no longer actively participates, but wishes to remain a member in anticipation of subsequent activities. He remains a member of the association and can become an active member again on request from a member of the collegiate council.
An honorary member is any person who does not participate directly in the work of the association but has a specific activity required for the smooth running of the association. Their appointment is decided by the collegiate council and is notified to the General Assembly.
Benefactor members are people who render, or have rendered, notable services to the association. Their appointment is decided by the collegiate council and is notified to the General Assembly.
