Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics (PIA), Piedmont and American hosted high school students interested in aviation at American’s line maintenance facility in DCA. Twenty-seven students from the aviation program at Dr. James A. Forrest Technology Center in Leonardtown, Maryland enjoyed a day of learning about aviation maintenance and airport tours.

Our Mission, Our Vision

Piedmont has a new mission and vision statement – a “roadmap” for how we run our operation, care for our team members and communicate with each other.

“For the last several years, our number one goal has been to create a culture of caring and compliance at Piedmont,” said Piedmont CEO Lyle Hogg. “Building a culture takes a long time – it doesn’t happen overnight – so we knew that would be our number one goal for a while. It made sense to take that goal and craft a mission statement.”

Real American heroes honored in CLT


 

Charlotte Douglas International Airport — It was an early Tuesday morning at the Charlotte Airport when Piedmont ramp agents Kenneth and Nickolas arrived to work. Expecting it to be like any other day, Ken and Nick made their way to the E Concourse ABR trailer to begin their shift. Little did they know that they would become Real American Heroes. As team members began arriving, one Piedmont team member suddenly lost consciousness and collapsed. “Everything went silent and I just froze,” said one team member who witnessed the event.
