A Brief Look at Campus Locations

The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics first opened its doors in Southwestern Pennsylvania in 1929, establishing itself as one of the nation’s first resources for aviation maintenance education. Since then, PIA has earned a reputation as one of the most respected schools in the industry, with campuses open throughout the Eastern United States in order to provide training opportunities for future aviation technicians and mechanics.

PIA campus locations are throughout key areas of the US, with each campus location offering access to both unique opportunities and local attractions.

PIA’s Pittsburgh Campus, located at the Allegheny County Airport just south of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, offers the Avionics program alongside Aviation Maintenance for students interested in pursuing a career in aviation electronics. The campus is also an excellent choice for students looking to receive an Associate’s Degree alongside their certification.

PIA’s Hagerstown Campus is Maryland’s exclusive FAA certified Airframe & Powerplant training school. Located near the Hagerstown Regional Airport just south of the Mason Dixon line between Maryland and Pennsylvania, PIA’s Hagerstown Campus was recently recognized as a “School of Distinction” by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges.

PIA’s Myrtle Beach Campus, located less than two miles from the South Carolina coastline, is the ultimate destination for sun-loving students.  This campus location resides in close proximity to many of Myrtle Beach’s renowned tourist attractions.

PIA’s Youngstown Campus, located at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport in Vienna, resides in one of the US’s most prominent aviation-oriented regions:  Ohio. Many of the employers who turn to PIA for skilled technicians employ in Ohio, including GE Aviation, Sierra Lobo and CommutAir.
