AHS International's 72nd Annual Forum & Technology Display is the world's leading international
technical event on vertical flight technology. The three-day meeting will include more than 250 technical papers
on every discipline from Acoustics to Unmanned Systems, as well as workshops, invited presentations and discussions

organizations will showcase the very latest in vertical flight technology.
