FOR anyone looking to get a flying start to organising an event or conference - the facilities available at The Aviator Hotel are guaranteed to fit the bill.
Sitting at the edge of the Sywell Aerodrome airfield, The Aviator is the perfect base for anyone seeking space for anything from a small meeting of up to 12 delegates, through to events looking to welcome up to 500 people.
Hangar One, adjacent to the Aviator Hotel and overlooking the airfield, boasts its own large bar and kitchen, as well as a passage to the east side that connects the function space to the Aviator Bar and Restaurant. One of the largest spaces in the county, Hangar One is an ideal venue for product launches, conferences, training days, team building events and dinner dances, easily accommodating up to 500 people.
Next to it is Hangar Two which can seat 220 theatre-style and has been designed to facilitate business conference needs with its bespoke equipment, including a stage with presenter's desk for three or four people and inbuilt LCD screens and lectern.
The Cirrus Suite can accommodate up to 150 delegates theatre-style with full blackout facilities available for film or slide presentations. The self-contained suite, however, also boasts its own dance floor and private reception area with cloakroom, own toilets and private bar, so is in great demand for wedding receptions and private parties.
For smaller groups, lectures and training courses, the Cockpit holds up to 50 delegates, while the Briefing Room has room for up to 12 delegates in any meeting configuration and has its own reception area, which is ideal for registration and coffee breaks.
For more informal meetings, interviews or as a syndicate room, the Club Room is ideal. With excellent views of the airfield the room benefits from its own cloakroom and is suitable for up to 20 people.
In addition, The Aviator has 59 comfortable en-suite bedrooms, an additional nine being added during a redevelopment project at the beginning of this year, making the hotel the ideal venue for those attending events, meeting and conferences, particularly those looking to take advantage of an overnight stay.
