Located at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport (YNG), the Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics (PIA) is ranked by Forbes as the No. 1 Top Two-Year Trade School in 2018. PIA has produced top notch aircraft mechanics and avionics technicians to enter the workforce in aviation maintenance, electronics, and other related fields since 1929. The Port Authority assisted PIA to construct an approximate 8,500 sq. ft. addition to its existing aviation technician training facility at YNG needed to provide additional offices and classrooms. The Port Authority issued a tax-exempt $1,521,000 Development Revenue Bond and passed through the proceeds to PIA for the project.
