Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport “Lends A Hand”

The helping hands at Hosanna Industries have made construction of new homes and rehabilitation of existing houses a hallmark of the organization’s charitable activities. Often, those volunteers build an entire home for a qualifying family in just one day.

Tenants at the Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport, as part of their holiday festivities, responded to that mission by holding a one-day “Lend a Hand” campaign of its own. Tenants and visitors at the airport’s Christmas party at Serventi’s restaurant on December 17 donated 53 pair of leather work gloves and $130 in gift cards to popular hardware stores.

Hosanna’s founder the Rev. Donn Ed and representative Amanda Becker attended the event to graciously accept the gifts that will be used in future projects.

If you missed the party, you’re still invited to join the effort. Visit Hosanna’s Website here for a link to make a direct donation:

Drone seminar



PENN TWP – The Pittsburgh–Butler Regional Airport (formerly the Butler County Airport) will host a free seminar about drones on Dec. 17.

Getting a drone for Christmas? You aren’t alone. According to the FAA, registration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, or drones, now outnumbers manned aircraft registration in the United States.

Learn about the regulations that apply to drone flying from a representative of the FAA, followed by a flight demonstration and a question and answer period.

The seminar is 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.  It will be held rain or shine inside a hangar at the Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport, 475 Airport Road, Butler, 16002.

To register for this event, go to and click in the drone seminar registration.  Seating is limited. Although the event is free, participants are asked to bring pair of new leather gloves to be donated to the airport’s “Lend a Hand” drive benefiting Hosanna Industries.
