National Airlift Partner

The Citation Special Olympics Airlift is a remarkable event that lifts everyone involved to a gold-medal mood. Coordinating the Airlift is a labor of love for Cessna and it’s a way for Citation customers to give a special experience to some very special people. The bond developed between pilots and passengers is hard to describe – you need to experience it to understand the magnitude of what has become the largest peacetime airlift in the world.

Cessna Aircraft Company will be returning for the seventh Citation Special Olympics Airlift, which will take place June 14 and June 21, 2014 in Trenton, New Jersey. We are looking for volunteers once again to touch the lives of athletes from across the country, and we hope that you will be willing to donate your time, your airplanes, and your generosity to help make this great event possible once again.
