Our Story

The story of Northeast Air begins in 1969, when Henry A. Laughlin, Jr.—fondly known as “Sandy” in the aviation industry—founded Northeast Air. Sandy had been a Major in the Army Air Corps and commanded a squadron of B-29 Bombers in the Pacific Theater during World War II. The discipline, integrity, and courage he displayed in the Army Air Corps served him well on his return to civilian life.

Over the next 30 years, Sandy built a solid business that supported not only his family, but created a livelihood for many dedicated employees. His passion and true love of aviation helped sustain him until his retirement in 1985. Today, Sandy’s son Henry has taken over the reins of Northeast Air.

Throughout 2016, Henry invested over $3,000,000 to bring Northeast Air’s FBO facilities to the forefront of the aviation industry, with a state of the art General Aviation Terminal, expanded parking, and updated amenities.
