Enhancing our value to members and strengthening our communities.
In 1948, Aviator Tom Davis launched a small airline, Piedmont Airlines, in Winston-Salem, NC, to provide jobs for servicemen and women after the war. Under his leadership, the airline flourished and the need for a credit union was recognized. By 1949, with airline volunteers and a cash box in a small office, Mr. Davis supported the launch of an aviation credit union to provide small loans and savings accounts to Piedmont Airlines’ employees. The credit union grew rapidly along with the airline industry.
Over the years, this credit union became known as Piedmont Advantage to reflect its growing membership. With access to over 5,000 branches within the credit union network and 35,000 surcharge-free ATMs, membership is open to individuals, who reside, work or worship in one of the eight communities it serves in North Carolina or who are employed by one of its employer companies. These eight communities are in Forsyth, Guilford, Mecklenburg, Cumberland, Duplin, Iredell, New Hanover and Rockingham counties.
