SALISBURY, Maryland - Piedmont Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Airlines Group Inc., will create a custom training program for military pilots who wish to transition to civilian aviation. Piedmont’s Military Transition Program, or MTP, matches military pilots to a certified partner flight school and can offer financial assistance while pilots build the required hours.

Piedmont welcomes new chief pilot

Captain Edward Leverton has joined Piedmont Airlines as chief pilot. Leverton comes to Piedmont with a wealth of experience, most recently as managing director of Flight Operations for Air Wisconsin Airlines where he oversaw line operations, flight standards and flight training. He also held the position of director of operations on Air Wisconsin’s 119 certificate. Before taking the position of managing director, Leverton spent five years as chief pilot and director of flying, during which time he led Air Wisconsin’s transition to electronic flight bags. He spent several years as Air Wisconsin’s regional chief pilot based in Philadelphia.

Leverton holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Studies from City University Business School in London and is a line check airman on the CL-65 (CRJ-200). As chief pilot, Leverton will work closely with chief pilot Jeff Newton and our line pilots on the issues that affect our day-to-day operations.
