As the city's only minor-league team, the New York Aviators professionally paddle burnt biscuits for loyal rink-side fans. The Aviator's ice rink chills inside Floyd Bennett Field, a converted airplane hangar boasting sky-high ceilings and a vast array of aviation memorabilia. Captain the night from the comfortable skybox as the ice-lacerating action takes place below. Root on players with NHL dreams as they patrol the competitive six-team Federal Hockey League.
Celebrate a complete set of teeth during intermissions by ordering some snacks or beer from the sports bar located just outside the skybox. To make the stay smooth from start to finish, the facility extends free parking to all merry motor coaches.
Yelpers give Aviator Sports and Recreation a 3.5-star average, and have great things to say about Aviators games and the rink itself:
