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.

Piedmont captain writes about flying experience in Model Aviation magazine

Life as a full-scale pilot 

Yes, my column is titled “Micro-Flying,” but this month I would like to discuss something slightly different and opposite of micro models—full-scale flying. The world of model aviation is a great one, and many modelers who love model aviation are also interested in, or currently involved in, full-scale aviation.
