Student Chapters

The Society strongly supports its AHS Student Chapters by offering information on career and internship opportunities; scholarship availability; student educational competitions and informative chapter presentations.  Student chapters conduct regular meetings focusing on vertical flight activities taking place on both the collegiate and national level. Maintaining an affiliation with the local AHS chapter allows students to network with the leading designers and developers in the international vertical flight community.
