2018 Winners with Chairman

The Vertical Flight Foundation was established in 1967 as the philanthropic arm of the American Helicopter Society (now VFS). As a charitable organization, the Foundation's operation is made possible solely through voluntary tax-deductible contributions.

100% of every tax-deductible contribution to VFF goes directly to student scholarships. The Vertical Flight Society covers all overhead costs of administration and accounting, and contributes a portion of its revenue to supplementing individual contributions.
