Since 2006, Signature Flight Support Corporation has participated in Cessna’s Citation Special Olympics Airlift. This year Signature will participate at three of its FBOs – Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP), Baltimore (BWI) and at Indianapolis (IND).

The outbound flights to this year’s Special Olympics USA National Games in Lincoln, Nebraska took off on Saturday, July 17th where Signature Flight Support provided ground handling and flight support for 26 flights carrying 154 passengers from these three bases. The return flights are scheduled for Saturday, July 24th where once again Signature Flight Support will assist Cessna and the athletes.

“We are proud once again to be part of the Citation Special Olympics Airlift”, said Maria Sastre Signature Flight Support’s Chief Operating Officer. “As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, we are always looking for opportunities where we can provide support to socially responsible organizations such as the Citation Special Olympics Airlift.”

“This is our sixth Citation Special Olympics Airlift,” said Angela Baldwin, Manager of Media Relations for Cessna Aircraft Company. “The airlift would not be possible without the assistance of companies such as Signature Flight Support Corporation.”
