Cessna has again committed to coordinate the Citation Special Olympics Airlift (CSOA) for the 2014 Special Olympics USA. Since games are held every four years, this will mark the seventh such airlift since Cessna first became involved in 1987. The most recent airlift in 2010 put 165 Cessna jets to work transporting 830 athletes to and from the event in Lincoln, Neb. The venue for the next games will be New Jersey’s Princeton/Mercer County area and Cessna is looking to recruit at least 175 Citation owners who will donate their jets, pilots and fuel to carry approximately 1,000 Special Olympics athletes to and from the games.
