Welcome Aboard JetPiedmont.com!

On a cold day in February, 1948, a small DC-3 took to the skies over Wilmington, North Carolina enroute to Cincinnati, Ohio with intermediate stops in Southern Pines, Charlotte and Ashville, North Carolina, Tri-Cities, Tennessee and Lexington, Kentucky.

Piedmont Flight 41 was carrying one paying passenger, founder T.H. Davis who was not yet 30 years old and a handful of local dignitaries.


"If you're driving down the road and see a turtle sitting on a fence post,
don't be too impressed. That turtle didn't get there by itself."
