CHC Helicopter and Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, is offering the opportunity for aviation students to apply for a number of grants to attend the 2018 CHC Safety & Quality Summit in Dallas in October 2018.
This partnership between CHC and Sikorsky 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.
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?”
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.chcsafetyandqualitysummit.
