Eagle East Aviation Tours
At Eagle East Aviation Tours, a merry band of certified flight instructors presides over students practicing to become pilots themselves. The company operates out of a pair of airports—Lawrence Municipal in North Andover and Plum Island Area Airfield in Newburyport—that provide access to moderate-traffic airspace, allowing more time practicing with its single-engine aircraft and less time waiting on the tarmac. En route to earning their wings, students also spend time in ground school learning the finer theoretical points of aviation as well as how to reason with a cloud that refuses to move. Less ambitious clients, meanwhile, can leave the navigating to the professionals and opt for tours of the nearby airspace.
