The Vertical Flight Heritage Sites Program is intended to recognize and help preserve locations with the most noteworthy and significant contributions made in both the theory and practice of helicopter and other VTOL aircraft technology. The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and Weston-super-Mare Airport in North Somerset, England were named as the two 2018 Vertical Flight Heritage Sites. Representatives from Georgia Tech (left) and the Helicopter Museum (right) hold small plaques signifying the award. Large bronze plaques will be installed later this year at both sites. The representatives are flanked by David Koopersmith (VFS Chair of the Board) and Mike Hirschberg (VFS Executive Director).
