The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics, known to the industries it serves as PIA, is located at the Allegheny County Airport just south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. PIA offers Associate in Specialized Technology (AST) degrees in Aviation Maintenance Technology, and Aviation Electronics Technology. Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics has three branch campuses. The Youngstown-Warren Branch Campus is located at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport in Vienna, Ohio. The Hagerstown Branch Campus is located at the Top Flight Airpark, adjacent to the Hagerstown Regional Airport in Hagerstown, Maryland. The Myrtle Beach Branch Campus is located near the Myrtle Beach International Airport and International Technology and Aerospace Park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The Hagerstown and Youngstown Branch Campuses each offer a 16-month diploma program in Aviation Maintenance which, like the Aviation Maintenance degree program, qualifies graduates to test for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) Certification.

The Myrtle Beach Branch Campus diploma program can be completed in approximately 17 months. This program also qualifies graduates to test for the FAA A&P Certification. Students have the opportunity to attend Horry-Georgetown Technical College in conjunction with PIA in order to earn an Associate Degree in Applied Science in addition to their A&P.

PIA's Associate degree programs are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).

PIA's short-term programs are marketed under the name PIA Jump Start (formerly PIA Career Services), and include training in the following areas: Truck Driving, Heavy Equipment Operation, Computer Technology, and Computer-Based Office Training. The Jump Start programs are non-accredited programs that are designed to quickly prepare its graduates for new careers. PIA Jump Start programs are offered at training centers in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania; Clarksburg, West Virginia; and Dunbar, West Virginia.

PIA is a not-for-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status. The President and CEO is John Graham III.
