KUNMING, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- The 2019 "Wings for Love" Wingsuit Flying World Championship Trials will take place in the Jinggu Dai and Yi Autonomous County of China's southwestern Yunnan province from December 19 to 23.

"The five-day event will attract the world's top wingsuit flyers to participate," said Xu Kai, spokesman of the organizing committee at the media on Tuesday. "Such as the personal challenge to pass through two hot air balloons, and the wingsuit formation flying in the night."

Xu also revealed that the famous Chinese wingsuit flyer Sheng Guangqiang will try the powered flight with a hard-shell wingsuit for the first time during the event.

"Our theme is 'flying for love', so the prize money will be donated to poor children in Jinggu," Xu added.

Jinggu has a unique natural environment, stable weather conditions and high visibility for wingsuit flying. Enditem
