Aviation Students Encouraged to Apply for Grant Opportunities to Attend CHC Safety & Quality Summit

Tuesday, April 17, 2018


CHC Helicopter and Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, announced today the opportunity for aviation students to apply for a number of grants to attend the 2018 CHC Safety & Quality Summit in Dallas this October. This partnership will support students with fully-funded travel and entrance to a renowned industry safety event, as well as a place on one of the leading Human Factors training courses in aviation.

The Peter Gardiner Grant, named after the late Dr. Peter Gardiner, a major figure in establishing and shaping the Summit in its early days, is provided by CHC in collaboration with Dr. Scott Shappell and Dr. Doug Wiegmann, co-developers of the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS).

Sikorsky, a key sponsor and long-time supporter of the Safety & Quality Summit, will award the Sikorsky Safety Scholarship to a deserving aviation student. Last year was the first time Sikorsky awarded the grant to send a student to the Summit and we are delighted to announce the continuation of this generous additional support.

Students interested in being considered for either of these grant opportunities must currently be engaged in an aviation-related educational program and will need to submit an application, along with a 500 word essay related to this year’s theme for the Summit: “Building Safety at Every Level: Does this Start at the Top or with Front Line Employees?

Detailed information and the application form are available on the event’s website. Applications are due by May 30, 2018.

The 2018 CHC Safety & Quality Summit will take place October 2-4 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas, near CHC’s global headquarters. Information on the Summit is available at www.chcsafetyqualitysummit.com. For additional questions, please email summit@chcheli.com.
