About 120 aircraft from 28 states carried more than 800 athletes and their coaches to Orlando for the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games in what is Textron Aviation’s eighth airlift since the airlifts first began in 1987. Textron Aviation customers donate their jets and turboprops, fuel and pilots for the airlift. Aircraft departed for Orlando on June 4. They will return on June 12 to fly athletes and coaches back home.
