ASIANIA Parachuting Championships are generally conducted each year with events for Style, Accuracy, Formation Skydiving and Canopy Formation.  Other events may be added at the request of organisers. There are two sections to the championships - ASIANIA and the International Open (usually promoted by the organiser) to encourage participation from all over the world. Tropies and medals are awarded each section.

ASIANIA also conducts FAI IPC approved FAI Judge Training Courses, mainly in conjunction with the annual Asiania Parachuting Championships.  These courses have greatly benefitted and increased the numbers and quality of judges within the Asiania countries. 

The ASIANIA Annual General Meeting is conducted in conjuction with the Asiania Parachuting Championships. Office Bearers are elected every three years.

Another annual event is the ASIANIA EMAX Video Competition which is a competition to encourage jumpers of all levels experience to partcipate in competition. Teams can practice each jump as many times as they wish, but can only submit one official video entry. Judges are also encouraged to submit the assessments of the official jumps by their team, which are critiqued by official FAI Judges as another learning tool.  This Video Competition has a free entry fee to Asiania members and is conducted at each team's selected Drop Zone, using their preferred aircraft.
