We are continuously networking and expanding our efforts, striving for the absolute best service for our students and alumni.

While the overwhelming demand for skilled aircraft technicians continues to be the hot topic within the aviation industry, your skill-set does not limit you to this profession. Our strong reputation within the industry inherently gravitates these employers to PIA, but our Career Services Department is continuously reaching out and educating other industries of the unique diversity of skills certified aviation technicians are capable of performing.
