Located within Floyd Bennett Field, Aviator Sports and Events Center is an authorized Concessionaire of the National Park Service and New York’s largest sports and events center. Aviator has refurbished four historic aircraft hangars and surrounding grounds in partnership with the NPS. The area includes 175,000 square feet of indoor sports and event space along with adjoining outdoor turf fields and free parking for 2,000 cars. Aviator provides a wide variety of sports leagues and activities, including CrossFit, camps, birthday parties, field trips, ice skating, hockey, gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, soccer and more.

The NPS and Aviator began their relationship in 2003. By combining Floyd Bennett Field’s original hangars they created one of the largest sports complexes in the country. History buffs will relish in the knowledge that Floyd Bennett Field’s past has been well preserved by the National Park Service which maintains a collection of its historic aircraft on display in a 1950’s era nose hangar.
