FLOYD BENNETT FIELD — After weeks of speculation, it has been announced that a new professional Brooklyn-based hockey team, The New York Aviators, will be joining the Northeast Professional Hockey League’s (NEPHL) inaugural 44-game season in November. The Aviators (A’s) will play at Aviator Sports and Events Center at Floyd Bennett Field.
Other teams in the new league are from Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, according to a release from league Commissioner Pat Lovett.

It’s the highest compliment to the staff and community of the Aviator Sports and Events Center. We look forward to presenting a first class team and service at very popular prices to all of New York.”
