Triad Honor Flight: First Flight of 2022 Scheduled for April 27th from Piedmont Triad International Airport

Apr 13, 2022 | Blog, Newsroom

Triad Honor Flight, a member of the Honor Flight Network, has scheduled their spring Honor Flight for April 27th, 2022. Veterans from the Triad area will be traveling from the Piedmont Triad International Airport to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring those who have served and sacrificed for our country. This year’s flight will include World War II (WWII), Korean, Cold War and Vietnam veterans.

The organization responsible for managing this year’s event, Triad Honor Flight, is a non-profit organization governed by a board of directors, and adhering to the Honor Flight Network guidelines. The original Honor Flights from the Triad (2009 – 2011) only included WWII veterans, but establishment of the new organization allows inclusion of all veterans 65 and older.

Triad Honor Flight organizer, Alison Huber says, “We are so very excited to have another Triad Honor Flight leaving PTI just five months after our last Honor Flight on Veterans Day, November 11th, 2021. Bi-annual flights will allow us to honor more of our Triad veteran’s with the opportunity to visit their memorials in D.C.”

PTI’s Executive Director Kevin Baker says, “We were happy to see the honor flight return to PTI last November for the first event in 10 years and are equally thrilled to host this year’s flight as it promises to be another great event with involvement of so many from the community.”

PTI is thrilled to be a part of this special day honoring our veterans and invite you to take part in the festivities as well. To honor our veterans, the local Triad Honor Flight organizer is asking anyone who would like to write cards and letters thanking the veterans for their service.  The letters will be passed out on the flight home from Washington. You may drop off your letters to the vets at the Airport Authority office (located on the upper / departure level terminal building near entry door 4), or mail them to:

Piedmont Triad International Airport
Attn: Veteran Letters
1000A Ted Johnson Pkwy
Greensboro, NC 27409
