Next week in New Zealand, the first Air Sports Live event will feature 10 different competitions, including paragliding, skydiving, helicopters and hot air ballooning, all set against a spectacular alpine backdrop. Event organizers promise "high-adrenalin viewing," with skydivers competing in a race around pylons, helicopter pilots performing "phenomenal stunts" and dramatic high-G aerobatics. If you can't be in New Zealand for this extravaganza, you can watch many of the competitions via online video. Some of the videos are pay-per-view, but still cheaper than an airline ticket to the antipodes. This week, glider competitions are under way, and next week, the 10-sport event will run Dec. 27 and 28.

Organizers say it will be the largest multi-air-sport event ever all in one place.
