A History of Piedmont Airlines

Aug 16, 2012

Charlotte was the first and most successful hub of Piedmont Airlines, once a very prominent airline. The airline enjoyed a decades-long reputation for quality, and when it was purchased by US Airways in the late 80’s, a nostalgia for Piedmont Airlines began and hasn’t faded away yet. Quite the contrary. In the last few years, our guest today has written a book and produced a documentary about the airline, and transportation and aviation museums around the region have dedicated significant space to the history of Piedmont Airlines.
