Airport Authority

The Centre County Airport Authority was reestablished in 1978 as a successor to the State College Borough’s Airport Authority. Authority members study and make recommendations on commercial air transportation principally at the University Park Airport. Although the Authority monitors related services provided by outside service providers, it is solely responsible for operating the University Park airport terminal.


The authority shall consist of no more than 9 members.
