Pilot and actor Harrison Ford has been named honorary chairman of Cessna Aircraft's 2010 Special Olympics Airlift. "It is an opportunity for Cessna to demonstrate [its] community-minded approach, and an opportunity for all of us in aviation to do something positive," said Ford. Cessna is seeking volunteers to transport some 2,000 athletes to the next Special Olympics, which will be held July 17-24, 2010, in Lincoln, Neb. The manufacturer hopes to secure at least 325 Citations in support of the effort.

“This is going to be mind blowing. Mind blowing…It’s about having an architecture that would enable the creation of a self-sustaining city on Mars with the objective of being a multi-planet species and a true space-faring civilization and one day being out there among the stars…I’m so tempted to talk more about the details of it. But I have to restrain myself. ”
