Local pilot Ed Chatterton, a retired Professor of Economics at Lock Haven University, died at the age of 68 on 29 December 2014, shortly after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Ed had owned several different Piper aircraft (most recently a beautifully equipped and impeccably maintained Cherokee Arrow), but is best remembered for his Stemme S-10 motorglider, seen here, in which he would frequently give visitors rides around the Susquehanna River Valley. The Stemme was kept in the corner hangar now occupied by AvSport of Lock Haven..
A US Army veteran who commanded a signal company in Vietnam, Ed enjoyed flying and playing tennis, poker, and chess. He and AvSport's founder H. Paul Shuch first met through their membership in Central PA Mensa. Ed lived and died frustrated at his inability to understand reality, but his sense of awe of that reality gave him much pleasure throughout his life.
