At this time there is no host country and the event may necessarily be postponed until 2019. Japan presented a bid to conduct the World Indoor Skydiving Championships but required NAC approval.  Hopefully Japan Indoor Skydiving will be able to present a successful approved bid for the future.

Judge Training

Four FAI Judge Training Courses have been organised along with the World Championships this year.  Formation Skydiving, Canopy Formation and Speed Skydiving in Australia in October and Accuracy Landing and Freefall Style in Bulgaria in August.

Chair of Competitions David Choi will be offering ASIANIA support to  member countries to conduct successful championships and to provide experienced judging or coaching support where requested.
