Aeronautics institute accepting veterans' educational benefits

June 19, 2013

Upon completion of the two-year waiting period, Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics,  Hagerstown branch, announced it is able to accept Veterans Affairs educational benefits.

Veterans of the U.S. armed forces who are eligible for education benefits can now take advantage of the only FAA-approved airframe and powerplant maintenance school in the state of Maryland (http://av-info.faa.gov/MaintenanceSchool.asp).

PIA is recognized as a “2013 Military Friendly School” by G.I. Jobs with a veteran enrollment of 19 percent.

PIA will conduct an open house Saturday at 11 a.m. and encourages any veterans who have been waiting to utilize their benefits at PIA to revisit the new facility at 14516 Pennsylvania Ave.

All veterans should educate themselves on their eligible VA benefits prior to enrolling to determine which chapter is suitable. A veteran pursuing VA education benefits should go to www.gibill.va.gov.
