The World Games, organised by the International World Games Association (IWGA), is the second largest multi-sport event in the world after the Olympic Games. It offers an excellent platform to the FAI and its competitors to demonstrate the excitement of air sports in front of the world's media.

Drone racing and canopy piloting – a spectacular form of skydiving that combines precision and speed – will be on the programme of the multi-sport event.

The previous edition took place  in Wroclaw, Poland. It included three FAI disciplines: canopy piloting, paramotoring and glider aerobatics.

Some 35,000 people attended the opening ceremony of the event, which attracted more than 3,000 competitors from 100 nations, including 66 pilots and skydivers.
