Throughout the year, AHS International organizes and co-sponsors several regional and international conferences around the world that facilitate the advancement of the theory and practices of helicopter and other VTOL aircraft technology. Whether smaller (75-100 person) regional or technical specialists' meetings, or our Annual Forum — the biggest and best vertical flight technical event in the world, with more than 1,100 attendees — every event is designed to impart as much knowledge and understanding as possible, as well as provide networking contacts and excitement about the future of vertical flight.
Check out these exciting upcoming vertical flight technical events, and make your plans today to be part of tomorrow's vertical flight technology!
