Piedmont Aircraft last month launched as an aircraft sales company for pre-owned Beechcraft and Hawker aircraft. Industry veteran Tom Mekis is leading the company as president and CEO. Piedmont Aircraft has offices in Winston-Salem and Charlotte, N.C., and Leesburg, Va. Mekis decided to invest in Piedmont after Encore Aviation acquired the Landmark Aviation FBOs and pre-owned aircraft business from Dubai Aerospace Enterprise last year and opted to focus solely on the FBOs, presenting him with what he saw as an opportunity.
