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

Nov 04 2016

Piedmont captain, Joe Malinchak, wrote a feature story about his experience flying for Piedmont. Below is his article from the November 2016 issue of Model Aviation magazine. Reprinted here with permission.

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.

Upcoming First Officer Interview Dates

Piedmont Airlines will hold  interviews for first officers June 2 and June 10 in Charlotte.  Qualified applicants will be provided transportation to Charlotte.

Piedmont offers no interview flow to American Airlines, a current 18 to 24 month captain upgrade time, $5,000 signing bonus and free ATP CTP.  New Piedmont pilots  may also earn an additional $5,000 for every pilot they refer to Piedmont Airlines.  To be considered for an interview, please contact recruiters Mike Campbell at 386.212.0235 or Heather Bowers at 704.808.0279.
