Citation owners who donate the use of their jets to fly participants in this year’s Special Olympics USA National Games to Lincoln, Neb., can rest assured that any maintenance needs will be handled. Not only is authorized Citation service center Duncan Aviation at the ready but Cessna is bringing a new mobile service unit to Lincoln. The airlift will transport some 800 athletes and coaches from all over the U.S. to the competition in Lincoln, with arriving Citations landing every two minutes on July 17 and departing on July 24. “With so many Citations converging on Lincoln, Cessna wants to make absolutely certain that our customers receive expedited customer service during the event,” said Stan Younger, Cessna vice president of service facilities. The mobile service unit at Lincoln is Cessna’s seventh and will be based in Texas after the Special Olympics. Cessna is adding nine more mobile units, including new bases in Europe and Canada, as part of its ServiceDirect initiative, which includes on-site maintenance, local technician placement and contract support.
