CHC Helicopter's call for papers for its CHC Safety & Quality Summit has closed, but it is accepting applications for the Peter Gardiner Student Grant for one more month. The deadline for student applications is April 28.

In collaboration with Dr. Scott Shappell and Dr. Doug Wiegmann, developers of the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS), CHC is offering the grant for the seventh year in a row. Aviation students from around the world can apply to attend the summit Sept. 27 to 29 in Grapevine, Texas, for free. The application must be submitted with a 500-word essay exploring the theme: “Can we truly manage all the risk? What if the barriers aren’t as robust as they seem?”


CHC recently planned its emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Its reorganization plan was approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Northern District of Texas at the beginning of March and went into effect Friday.
