In an effort to streamline operations, USAir Group Inc. of Arlington, Va., sold yesterday three subsidiaries that provide general aviation services, repairs and aircraft parts.
The airline said it sold Piedmont Aviation Services Inc., Air Service Inc. and Aviation Supply Corp. to Piedmont Holding Inc., which is owned by Valley Air Services Inc. in Altoona, Pa.
The three companies will remain, respectively, in Winston-Salem and Greensboro, N.C., and Atlanta, USAir said.
"The focus of USAir Group will be on scheduled airline service," Chief Executive Seth E. Schofield said in a statement. "Our resources of management time and capital will remain concentrated on the operations of USAir, the principal subsidiary of USAir Group, as well as our four regional airline subsidiaries."
