Piedmont captain Matt Sheehan is a big fan of paying it forward. As a child, he was obsessed with airplanes, begging his grandmother to take him to Logan Airport in Boston to watch the airplanes take off and land. As an adult, he gives children in need the gift of flight he longed for as a child.
Today marks Piedmont's 56th anniversary of revenue service. Mr. Richard A. Henson planted the seeds of Piedmont Airlines with the founding of the Hagerstown Commuter in 1962. But, that was not the only significant event of the year.
