International Website

The world's premier site for exchange of hydrofoil related news, information, and correspondence. It all starts and ends here. Upon request, members have their link added to the IHS Links Page in the Links to members' websites section. An automated Bulletin Board (BBS) is the center for exchange of correspondence. Members receive automated notification by email of new postings on the BBS (this can be turned off at the individual member's option)

Local Meetings

Arranged in locations where there is sufficient interest in hydrofoils to make such meetings possible. IHS meetings normally include a presentation of interest to the profession (advance notice of meetings appears in the announcements page).

International Newsletter

Published four times per year to present current and historical hydrofoil-related information, as well as IHS news and correspondence. Members have their choice of format: hard copy by mail or electronic copy by internet. A free sample copy is available from the IHS main page.

Annual Meeting

Held in the Spring of each year. Presents IHS business issues to the membership, presents newly elected members of the Board of Directors, and recognizes selected individuals who have been outstanding in their contributions to hydrofoils.

Cooperation With Other Professionals

IHS cooperates with the Society of Naval and Marine Engineers SD-5 Panel, the US Hovercraft Society, and other professional societies, universities, companies, and organizations dedicated to the advancement and distribution of knowledge related to Advanced Marine Vehicles (AMVs) vehicles. This includes the sponsorship of international symposia.

Recognition and Awards

IHS presents awards to individuals for their outstanding contributions to the world of hydrofoils.
