We've pretty much covered pro sports and college football to death, but to my knowledge there hasnt been much talk about college hoops charters, which I think would be an interesting topic...today Nebraska came here to play us, so I went on flytecomm and poked around for their return flight, and came across this:

Airline Chautauqua Airlines
Flight Number 931
Departure City (Airport) Denver, CO (DEN)
Departure Time 01/12/2005 11:21 PM
Arrival City (Airport) Lincoln, NE (LNK)
Arrival Time 01/13/2005 01:17 AM
Remaining Flight Time 00:00
Aircraft Type Embraer EMB-145
Current Altitude 0 feet
Current Groundspeed 0 mph
Flight Status Arrived

Clearly a charter, as Chautauqua doesn't have scheduled service between DEN-LNK, and the departure time sounds about right...

Also, I read in a magazine article that the Kansas Jayhawks fly a SkyKing 732 around - pretty luxurious for a college team...anyone know any other college hoops charter info off hand?

Michigan charters the Cleveland Cavaliers 732 every once in a while. Wisconsin usually uses Chatauqua or Midwest depending on the trip.

For tonight's Texas Tech-Kansas State game, found a trio of Ameriquest Falcon 20's from Salina, KS back to Lubbock arriving within a 10 minute span... (would teams fly into Salina for a game in Manhattan, KS? Mapquest puts it at almost 70 miles away, kinda far?

I happen to know that Seton Hall University will often fly commercial if there is a nonstop flight out of Newark, and if there is not a nonstop flight, they will often charter a plane and fly out of Teterboro instead, with the exception of the West Virginia trip, where they will fly into Pittsburgh commercially and bus from Pittsburgh to Morgantown. Additionally, if you've read A Season on the Brink, you would know that Indiana University owns their own plane, and uses that plane to travel to and from games.

Just did a quick search, came up with a Saab 340 for IU, registration N184K...used to operate a Gulfstream I it appears as well...and they also have a King Air 200, but I doubt thats used for hoops - too small...

Ok, before I go to bed for the night, a few more:

South Carolina - Chatauqua ERJ from Baton Rouge (LSU)
Penn St. - Comair CRJ from Champaign (Illinois)
Creighton - "Air Solutions" EMB-120 from Terre Haute, IN (Indiana State)
Purdue - Chatauqua ERJ from Minneapolis (Minnesota)

Chatauqua seems to be real popular...

Indiana's KingAir 200 is used for recruiting trips by coaches. The Saab 340 is a nice plane that they use for almost all their sports (except football). Probably one of the best investments a university can spend the money on.
