Mon.-Thurs., Oct. 5-8: Forum 76

The Vertical Flight Society's 76th Annual Forum & Technology Display is the world's leading international technical event on vertical flight technology. The virtual conference will span 4 days and include 230+ technical papers on every discipline from Acoustics to Unmanned Systems, as well as invited presentations and discussions by leaders in the military, government agencies and industry.

The Technology Display, running concurrent with the Forum, is the most extensive exposition of cutting-edge vertical flight technologies in the world, and also includes other technologies more broadly applicable to aerospace in general. Leading manufacturers, service providers, defense agencies, universities, and research and development organizations will showcase the very latest in vertical flight technology in our virtual exhibit hall.

Sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities are available on the Forum 76 event page.
