    Harrison Ford accepts humanitarian honor previously presented to CAP, Cessna

    October 23, 2013

    NEVADA -- Harrison Ford may be best known for his iconic portrayals of movie heroes such Han Solo and Indiana Jones, but it was his invaluable and often unsung work as a general aviation advocate and humanitarian pilot that were in the spotlight Tuesday morning at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA 2013) in Las Vegas as Ford accepted NBAA’s 2013 Al Ueltschi Award for Humanitarian Leadership. “I am humbled – and not just a little embarrassed – by this award and this attention,” said Ford, with obvious emotion, in a ceremony that capped the Opening General Session at NBAA2013. “I have done what I've been able to do, and upon receipt of this high honor I promise to redouble my efforts... to try to make myself available for more of the good missions that can provide service to people in need.” Past recipients of this award include Civil Air Patrol (2009) and one of CAP's partners, the Cessna Aircraft Co., in recognition of the Cessna Citation Special Olympics Airlift (2006).
