Brewster: Grant Funds to Aid Renovation at Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics in West Mifflin

The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics (PIA) in West Mifflin has been awarded a $500,000 state grant to aid renovations of the campus, according to state Sen. Jim Brewster.

“Facilities at the PIA campus in West Mifflin will be significantly improved as a result of these new state funds,” Brewster said.  “PIA is a well-established school dedicated to training students for jobs in aviation.

“These new dollars will help the institute continue its critical mission.”

The funding will be used to renovate several areas on the campus.  The rehabilitation project includes new entry doors, building upgrades, reconfiguration of the learning center, replacement of the HVAC system, as well as lighting and technology improvements.

The funding has been earmarked through the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program.

Brewster credited the governor with seeing the value of the project. 

“The governor’s support of this project was critical, and I am pleased that he was engaged and delivered the funding,” Brewster said. 

Brewster said that both he and state Rep. Bill Kortz (D-Allegheny) who serve West Mifflin and the surrounding areas are strong supporters of PIA.  He said they welcome more state investment for the school because of the job opportunities that are created for its students. 

The estimated total cost of the project is $1.3 million.
