In early 2005, the FAI Executive Board decided not to continue with the selection procedure for the organisation of World Air Games in 2005. The Board judged that there was insufficient time remaining for the two final bidders, Malaysia and Poland, to solve the various organisational problems.
The FAI announced on 27 October 2007 the opening of the bidding for the 2009 Games. Turin (Italy) has been chosen to host the World Air Games 2009. The decision was announced by the President of FAI - the World Air Sports Federation, Pierre Portmann, on first of June 2007 at the Olympic Museum, Lausanne
On 16 June 2010 the FAI announced the cancellation of the 2011 Games, following the decision of the city of Odense not to host the Games, and uncertainty and risks around a proposed late change to host the games in the city of Herning, also in Denmark.
The FAI World Air Games 2015 has been awarded to the United Arab Emirates and was held in Dubai. This multi-discipline event was organised by the Emirates Aerosports Federation under the patronage of the Crown Prince of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and took place from 1 to 12 December 2015. 875 athletes from 55 countries competed in the Games, making it the biggest air sports event ever organised.
The FAI World Air Games 2020 will take place in Turkey and will be organised by the Turkish Aeronautical Association (THK). The contract for the Games was signed by THK and FAI at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, in February 2018.
