Special Olympics and Textron Aviation


Textron Aviation presents the Special Olympics Airlift, which is a monumental event where CESSNA CITATION, BEECHCRAFT KING AIR, BEECHCRAFT PREMIER, BEECHCRAFT BEECHJET and HAWKER aircraft owners and operators from around the world use their aircraft to transport Special Olympics athletes and coaches to the Special Olympics USA Games.

The 2022 Airlift will be the eighth that Textron Aviation has coordinated, and with the help of our generous customers, industry partners and volunteers, we are able to transport thousands of athletes and their coaches from across the country to this event each year. In fact, a Textron Aviation aircraft will take off or land every two minutes as a part of this effort.

Peyton Manning Named 2022 Special Olympics Airlift Honorary Chairperson

Winning a Super Bowl is a team effort. And so is flying athletes from all over the country to participate in the legendary Special Olympics USA Games. That’s why, as the honorary chair for the 2022 Airlift, Peyton Manning is asking you to help turn dreams into reality for these athletes.

What are the Special Olympics USA Games?

The 2022 Special Olympics USA Games will be hosted Saturday, June 5 through Saturday, June 12 in Orlando, FL. The 2022 USA Games are expanding to include 20 different sports and will include 4,000 athletes from the United States, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Held once every four years since 2006, this is the first time the USA Games have been held in Florida. The main venue for the event is the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
