Husker Air Force

The Nebraska Athletic Department launched the Husker Air Force in the Fall of 2010, setting the stage for qualified donors to get new jackets, the opportunity to earn wings and other perks when they join a program designed to help Nebraska football and basketball recruit nationally with greater efficiency and more effectiveness.

Husker Air Force is a strategic partnership between the Nebraska Athletic Department and both Jet Linx Aviation and UltraAir to simplify national air travel, maximize time, reduce costs and enable Husker coaches to visit and recruit the nation’s top players. Traditionally, Nebraska has signed football and basketball recruits from such states as Texas, California, Florida, Indiana, North Dakota and Ohio.

In June 2012, we had a Husker Air Force donor event which featured Athletic Director Tom Osborne, Head Football Coach Bo Pelini, and Head Men’s Basketball Coach Tim Miles. Here they are explaining the importance of the Husker Air Force.
