Overall Experience: Being at PIA has taught me skills that are applicable to other aspects of my life. They have taught me to problem solve when I encounter problems and to keep on pushing. If you share a passion for learning and aviation PIA is right for you.

Overall Experience: I have always had an interest in aviation, but never thought to venture into it as a career. But when I took a flight lesson for the first time two years ago I knew aviation is where I want to be. As an aviation mechanic, one is around aircraft all the time and is paid well. So this is what I decided I wanted to be. PIA is one of the best schools to become an A&P mechanic, with small class sizes and excellent instructors. Graduate from here and employers will come to you.

Academic Flexibility: Classes are Monday thru Friday from 8 am to 2:30 pm everyday, and with this school you can not miss time. It is a FAA regulation that all missed time must be made up, because it is a 1900 hour course.

Student Body: The school has a large diversity of students, different races, females, and no one is discriminated agaist. this school does not tolerate any racist remarks or actions. The student body here it is like a big family, classes are small and everybody gets to know everybody else. Most of the students are young just out of high school but there are a large number of older adults who are taking the training to further their careers or change careers, due to job markets where they live. This program helps in many job markets not just aeronautics, but mechanics of many different kinds.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: It is a Government regulated school, no sports, no activities. Just straight to the point workshops and studies.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Out campus has wireless access, and computer labs, free printing and we never have network issues. The downside is no electronics can be in use during class including Lab tops and tablet. So get pen and paper ready.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Pittsburgh institute of aeronotics was the ideal school for me because of its fast-track program towards employment with a Airframe and Powerplant licence. It may not be the most felxable with class scheduling but a year and a half of sacrificing 8 hours of your day is worth it if you understand that the outcome will be rewarding.The credits are transferable and the registration was simple the staff is will to walk you through it and give your your options.

Academic Experience: Most work is hands on and the grade reflects how well you follow directions and how organized you are with your work. Paper work is graded according to the regulations provided by the FAA. It also reflect your understanding of the content that is taught in class.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is mainly white males. There are some women that attend the school and also some black males. Everyone gets along very well, and each graduating class is almost like a family. The average class size is 20 persons, give or take. The class starting in the fall is always larger, consisting of younger less experienced kids out of high school; whereas the summer starting class is smaller and seems to be mid-20s guys most of which have prior military experience.
