Aviator Sports & Events Center

This past weekend I was given an opportunity to represent Mommyslinks and attend a special day with Andre at Aviator Sports & Events center. It is located at the Floyd Bennet Field on Flatbush avenue in Brooklyn, NY.
Floyd Bennet field is NYC's first municipal airport. It became known as the prime airport for experimental fliers who wanted to establish speed & distance records. This 170,000 sq ft decommissioned airport is massive upon entrance. Its Main Street houses the rock climbing wall, sky jump and leads to the food court, and indoor ice rink.
We were given a tour of the facility. This is an ideal place for sports fanatics. It has 2 basketball courts, indoor ice rink, 2 volleyball courts, turf fields, gym and a gymnastics arena. They also offer summer camps & a extended education program for children of all ages. Their goal is provide a healthy & active program. All staff members are licensed professionals. After our tour ended, we ate lunch in one of the 7 unique settings where your private events can be held & customized. We were also treated to the tunes by The Silly Dilly Band. What a quirky, high energy group! All the kids joined in the dancing and singing. Then the true fun began for the kids! We each were given a wristband that allowed us to use any of the activities. Each child was given time to play in the children's center which is like a small playroom where parents can drop off their children while either working out in the gym or playing hockey. After exerting some much energy, Andre was given the opportunity to do gymnastics for an 1 hour session. He learned to tumble, swing from a rope & hang from the parellal bar.
After his session, Andre wanted to do ice skating. It was freezing in there but there were tons of people enjoying themselves on the ice. I, not having the best coordination, convinced him that this wasn't the best idea so he opted for the sky jump! Its located on Main Street as well. Andre was harnessed and off he jumped! He had a blast with it.
If you're looking for a day of fun activities or even a camp for the summer that will get the kids moving I highly suggest Aviator Sports. It is a great facility that has so much to do that you'll never want to leave. There is on site parking which is a great plus. I only wish that there was a place as interactive in the city. It is a distance to get to but worth a day trip.
Thank you Mommyslinks & Aviator Sports!

This is my personal review. I was not compensated for it
