How have VFF scholarships helped?

Albert G. Brand, PhD Director of Flight Technology and Simulation, Bell Helicopter 1984 VFF Scholarship Winner, GA Institute of Technology ”I first learned about helicopters as an engineering student. The peculiar aerodynamics of rotating blades, as well as Professor Robin Gray's description of reverse flow, retreating blade stall and compressibility in edgewise flight got me hooked on the challenges of vertical lift. I am indebted to AHS, VFF and Georgia Tech for enabling my education and career and introducing me to many great leaders in this field.“
