Which sports?

NFL teams charter planes from the airlines, and I think most MLB teams do the same. Many, if not most, NBA teams have their own plane.

Three Phoenix teams (Diamondbacks, Coyotes and Suns) use Pace which has twi aircraft based at SkyHarbor a 734 and a 757. Sportsjet was started by the now owner of the Coyotes, Swift Trucking owner Jerry Moyes. Contracted out to Pace to operate. Other teams/organizations can charter the aircraft when not in use for the Phoenix teams.

I believe Champion has several aircraft available just to NBA teams during the season.
