AHS International – The Vertical Flight Technical Society is pleased to announce its 2013 Vertical Flight Foundation (VFF) scholarship recipients. The VFF was established in 1967 as the philanthropic arm of the society. Since 1977, the merit-based scholarship program has been a great success story, with over 400 scholarships awarded to date. Many recipients are now leaders in the vertical flight technical community. 100% of every tax-deductible contribution to VFF goes directly to student scholarships. AHS covers all the overhead costs of administration and accounting, and contributes a portion of its revenue to supplement individual contributions.
