|Born in Lock Haven, Jay B. Claster of State College PA (Seen at left with AvSport chief flight instructor H. Paul Shuch, presenting the FAA's Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award to William T. Piper Jr. in 2007) was a familiar face around Piper Memorial Airport. Often Master of Ceremonies at our annual Sentimental Journey to Cub Haven awards banquet, Jay was an aircraft owner for fifty years, and a member of both the Williamsport Hangar of the Quiet Birdmen and the State College chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association. Jay earned his bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from the Carnegie Technical School in 1953. He was instrumental in the development of the Centre County Airport Authority, and helped to bring improved airline service to the University Park airport. An avid car buff, Jay would display his Porsche each July at the annual Central PA Street Machines Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show on the airport at Lock Haven. Jay is survived by his wife Grace, two daughters, two sons, and eight grandchildren.|
