Our History

The origins of Piedmont Airlines can be traced back to 1931, when founder Richard A. Henson, an aviation pioneer and Fairchild Aircraft test pilot, began a fixed-base operation as Henson Aviation in Hagerstown, Maryland. More than 80 years later, Piedmont continues a strong tradition of safety, excellence and customer service in the aviation industry as part of the American Airlines family.
