Who We Are

AHS International is the world's premier professional vertical flight society. Since its inception in 1944, AHS has been a major force in the advancement of a global rotorcraft industry, marked by rapid technical developments and expanding military capabilities and commercial applications. The strength of AHS as a professional and technical society is its diverse international professional and corporate membership. The aim of the society is not only to emphasize and further engineering excellence in traditional rotorcraft platform disciplines, but to expand this focus to the multidisciplinary fields of vertical flight and the related support industries. By supporting the needs of today's vertical flight industry and advocating the requirements for tomorrow's industry, the AHS will benefit both military and commercial sectors of the rotorcraft industry.

Mission – Our major emphasis is to support Army Aviation through educational, technical, and scientific activities to advance the theory and practices of Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft and attendant subsystems.  The focus of the chapter is to advance these concepts in primary, secondary, and college educational institutions thru Grants and Scholarships.

Membership

– The Redstone Chapter is 285 strong.  This year, we expect to grow by at least 10%.  We actively and aggressively pursue new members and welcome members to our monthly Chapter Board meetings.  If you know someone that is interested in becoming a member, please direct them to the VTOL.org website. This email address is being protected from spambots.
