A Tradition of Excellence
The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics has served as a proving ground for aviation maintenance technicians from all walks of life. For over 85 years… through boom, bust, war and peace… the character of PIA has endured. We proudly trace our roots to industry pioneers Glenn Curtiss and Orville Wright and are nationally recognized as a premier educator of skilled, confident aviation technicians.
