'The Hangar' Orlando

Sheltair Aviation

Who is The Hangar Orlando?

Who wouldn’t want to party in an Airport Hangar? That was the question we asked ourselves when we found the most unique space in Orlando! In 2017 Avenue Event Group was tasked with finding a unique space for what later became our biggest client – 3M. The partners put their heads together and reached out to the offices of Sheltair Aviation to see if it was possible to host a private event in one of their largest hangars on-site at the Orlando Executive Airport. The rest is history…

Sheltair Aviation offers a wide variety of services throughout the country with over 15 different FBOs and hundreds of Hangar spaces. No other company in the industry offers Sheltair’s wide range of services, from FBOs to property leasing and management to construction of aviation-related facilities and more.

This 20,000 sq ft Airplane Hangar has been home to some of the most exclusive private events in Orlando since 2017.

How We've Contributed to Sheltair's Success

In 2017, Avenue Event Group reached out to Sheltair in order to host one of their largest events ever, with a guest appearance of Keith Urban!  This event opened up the “Hangar Door” to new possibilities for AEG.  The partners knew that having a 20,000 sq ft blank canvas location added to their portfolio would easily create new business for them, but the challenges of working with a space that already has a primary source of revenue was met with some hesitations.

AEG met with the Senior VP of Real Estate and Development of Sheltair Aviation to discuss how we could help bring more large, qualified, corporate events and provide Sheltair with supplementary income. In that meeting we discussed the challenges of hosting events at an active airport hangar along with the restrictions that we would have to abide by through the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority as well as the Federal Aviation Authority.

Once we learned all of the regulations we got right to work! We knew that Sheltair didn’t want to receive inquiries directly, as they are in the aviation industry, not the events industry.  In order to make it work for all parties, we decided to create a new brand, separate from Sheltair, in order to facilitate event leads.  AEG then began marketing ‘The Hangar’ Orlando as a premier venue with endless event possibilities, which led to countless leads and a number of grand-scale events.

Avenue Event Group manages all aspects of the events which is a huge bonus for the team at Sheltair Aviation, while they work on their core Aviation business, AEG handles the rest!
