Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics will host open house
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.
