Cessna partners with Special Olympics

Cessna Aircraft Company, is once again offering a unique internship experience – the Discover Flying Challenge – for six aviation students from a field of applicants for a summer-long excursion across the United States. This year, Cessna has partnered with Special Olympics as part of this summer’s Discover Flying Challenge to bring awareness to their charitable efforts.

To engage aviation enthusiasts and community partners’ supporters alike, the six pilot interns will use social media to share their experiences with flight and philanthropy throughout the summer. The charity with the most social engagement will receive a $15,000 donation from Cessna.

The pilots’ progress and scheduled events can be followed through SocialFlight, www.socialflight.com.  Or follow their journey on social media at:
