Wings N’ Wheels 2022

Some of the VFS Philly Chapter Officers attended the Wings N’ Wheels event in Blue Bell, PA on September 10, 2022. The event was a huge hit this year after a hiatus due to the pandemic. Our Chapter Officers shared the fun of rotary aircraft by showing kids how to spin air props, how to control and fly drones, and of course, spread the word about the benefits of being a Vertical Flight Society member.
The Wings N’ Wheels community event benefits Angel Flight East, whose mission is to provide free flights for children and adults in need of medical treatment far from their home.

More about Wings N’ Wheels and Angel Flight East can be found on their webpage.
