The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics will host an open house May 18 for those with an interest in flight-related careers.

Representatives from Endeavor Air will be at the school’s main campus, at the Allegheny County Airport in West Mifflin, to talk with prospective students.

PIA President Suzanne Markle said the open house is a chance for companies to let the public know they’re ready to hire.

“That we continue to host events at each of our campuses with such a large number of companies, in comparison to the number of upcoming graduates, is a strong indicator of sustained career demand,” Markle said.

Attendees will tour the main campus classrooms and hangar, learn about 16- and 21-month programs, view interactive demonstrations, meet faculty and students and learn about career opportunities.

Forbes Magazine recently ranked PIA as the top two-year trade school in the country.

“We look forward to the opportunity to serve new students and prepare them with the entry-level mechanic skills we know our employers require,” Markle said.

The open house is at 11 a.m. at PIA’s main campus, 5 Allegheny County Airport in West Mifflin.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
