CHC Safety & Quality Summit Offers Grant Opportunities for Aviation Students

Monday, March 25, 2019

CHC Helicopter and Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, announced today the opportunity for aviation students to apply for two grants to attend the 2019 CHC Safety & Quality Summit in Dallas this October. This partnership will support full-time students with fully funded travel and entrance to both the renowned industry safety event and 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. This will be the third year Sikorsky has awarded the student grant on behalf of the Summit.

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: “Shining a Light on Safety: Are We Looking in the Right Places?”

Detailed information and the application form are available on the event’s website. Applications are due by May 17, 2019.

The 2019 CHC Safety & Quality Summit will take place at the Omni Dallas Hotel on October 1-3. More information is available at www.chcsafetyqualitysummit.com.


Each Summit event features a series of presentations led by experts in the fields of aviation, oil & gas and energy, and safety. Invited speakers will lead approximately 100 concurrent sessions over a three-day period, addressing the theme and helping to contribute to the safety conversation in our industries, promoting excellence in safety and human factors and maintaining a robust safety environment. Approximately 500 delegates from nearly 30 countries and a range of industries join the Summit each year, making it one of the largest aviation safety events in the world.
