Eagle East Aviation, an owner operated flight school has been teaching people like yourself to fly for over twenty years. Our large fleet of aircraft consist of an ideal mix of training and traveling aircraft that are maintained by our own federally certified aviation mechanics to ensure the safest and most reliable aircraft. Our professional and experienced instructors can teach you to fly safely, proficiently and enjoyably. Located at Lawrence Municipal Airport in North Andover, we are only 30 minutes north of Boston and 15 minutes south of New Hampshire. This location also has its advantages while training. Because of the airport's unique airspace and moderate traffic, you will spend more time on your lesson and less time waiting on the ground for takeoff clearance.
As a private pilot you can fly anywhere you would like to go. You can take the family to the Cape or Nantucket for the weekend. You don't need to buy an airplane. You can rent from Eagle East, just as you would rent a car. It's not as expensive as you may think!
We are also offering ground schools that give you the training to pass the written exam and be prepared for the oral portion of the practical exam. These classes run for about fifteen weeks with classes one night a week or 8 weeks at two nights per week for about three hours per class.
