DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - March 13, 2017) - For the seventh year in a row, the CHC Safety & Quality Summit, in collaboration with Dr. Scott Shappell and Dr. Doug Wiegmann, developers of the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS), is providing aviation students from around the world with the opportunity to apply to attend the CHC Safety & Quality Summit at no charge.

Students interested in pursuing this opportunity can submit an application along with a 500-word essay related to the theme: "Can we truly manage all the risk? What if the barriers aren't as robust as they seem?" The application and detailed information can be found by visiting the event's website at www.chcsafetyqualitysummit.com. Applications are due by April 28, 2017.

Dr. Gardiner was instrumental in helping shape the CHC Safety & Quality Summit through his contributions as a speaker and session leader. The grant carrying his name offers students pursuing studying for careers in aviation the opportunity to access sessions and courses led by industry experts while also building their professional network across the industry.

The 2017 CHC Safety & Quality Summit will take place September 27-29 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Conference Center in Grapevine, TX, near CHC's global headquarters. For additional information on the Summit and the Peter Gardiner grant, please visit www.chcsafetyqualitysummit.com.
