Since 1929, PIA has produced top notch aircraft mechanics and avionics technicians to enter the workforce in aviation maintenance, electronics, and other related fields. Our graduates are in demand throughout the US, and PIA offers placement assistance to help both students and alumni in their pursuit of employment in the field of aviation.
Are you interested in aircraft? What about electronics, engines or sheet metal work? Do you just like working with your hands? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics (PIA) is the school for you!
PIA’s specialized Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) and Aviation Electronics Technology (AET) programs provide hands on experience. Our aviation maintenance program will prepare you for an exciting career as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified aircraft mechanic, and our aviation electronics (or avionics) program leads to opportunities as a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) licensed avionics technician.
The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) has extended the deadline of their SportAir Workshops scholarship to February 15th, 2015. This scholarship is available exclusively for PIA students. Check your student e-mail for more information on scholarship criteria and contact your campus director with any questions.
