On Thursday, December 7th, the American Helicopter Society International Southwest Region will host the 2018 Robert L. Lichten Award Competition. The purpose of the Lichten competition is to promote the exchange of technical information by encouraging AHS members to write and present papers dealing with all areas of rotorcraft technologies. This competition is especially tailored to provide new presenters an opportunity to be recognized for their contributions to the field. All AHS members who have not previously presented a paper at a national or regional meeting of AHS International or other technical societies are eligible.
Candidates for the regional competition will make a 20-minute presentation in front of judges and other AHS members. The winner of the regional competition will receive a $250 honorarium from the AHS Southwest Region and will be entered into the international competition. A $100 and $50 honorarium will be presented to 2nd and 3rd place respectively from the AHS Southwest Region.
