Mission Statement

Eastern Slope Regional Airport provides fuel and services to local and transient pilots through modern and upgraded airport facilities. This facility strives to be energy efficient and a point of pride to the community and region, supporting economic development and related employment

Eastern Slope Regional Airport (IZG) was developed in 1961 and was publicly owned by the Town of Fryeburg. In the 1980’s, the privately held White Mountain Airport located in North Conway, NH was being sold, and the area needed an airport to replace this loss.  The Eastern Slope Airport Authority (ESAA), was formed to commence efforts towards securing the Fryeburg, Maine location for a larger, more expansive airport to serve the community. Located near the convergence of Maine State Route 113, State Route 5, and US Route 302; the airport has a geographical reach that spans a multitude of municipalities, and these towns make-up the Board of Directors for ESAA. As the operator of IZG, the ESAA manages the day-to-day operations of the airport. The town of Fryeburg is the owner and official sponsor of IZG, recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the State of Maine. The Town of Fryeburg is responsible for oversight (including procurement, accounting, and grant administration) associated with the receipt of grants for infrastructure improvements to the facilities.
