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 90 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.

Our graduates have maintained and repaired everything from biplanes to drones. Many credit “The Institute” as their first step into the aerospace industry. Turn the page to learn more about the programs which have helped launch over 37,000 careers.
