Scope

The Journal of the American Helicopter Society is a peer-reviewed technical journal published quarterly (January, April, July and October) by AHS International. It is the world's only scientific journal dedicated to vertical flight technology and is available in print and online.

The Journal publishes original technical papers dealing with theory and practice of vertical flight. The Journal seeks to foster the exchange of significant new ideas and information about helicopters and V/STOL aircraft. The scope of the Journal covers the full range of research, analysis, design, manufacturing, test, operations, and support. A constantly growing list of specialty areas is included within that scope. These range from the classical specialties like aerodynamic, dynamics and structures to more recent priorities such as acoustics, materials and signature reduction and to operational issues such as design criteria, safety and reliability. (Note: semi- and nontechnical articles of more general interest reporting current events or experiences should be sent to the AHS magazine Vertiflite.)
