Howard was a fine person to work with . He was always ready to work with the station personnel to resolve a problem in such a manner as to accomadate the maximum revenue. He was one of those Captains who seldom encountered an overload problem that could not be resolved in some way that avoided a loss of revenue . I vividly remember his quick visits to AVLOO to bum a dip if Skoal or Copenhagen while his flight was being serviced. It was personnel such as him that helped make PAI a friendly and profitable airline.

Sure remember Howard coming through BNA, heading for DEN. Do any of you remember the wild boar races he participated in in Colorado? He brought one through BNA once and while one of our ramp agents was looking at it, it "charged" the agent from right inside the crate. Scare the you know what out of our city bred agent! Howard thought that was so funny! He kept doing so well out there with his wild boars that one year his competition got his boars quarantined until after the event was over.

The following from Donnie Martin - great story - Donnie:
Sorry to hear of Capt. Howard Hicks' passing. His name brings back a memory from LYH.

Captain Hicks was on a YS-11 that stopped in LYH and got a HOT START which made a loud boom and lots of smoke. He got on the PA and told the F/As to "GET EM OFF". They popped the chutes and everyone slid off! A security policeman saw all of this happening and called 911 or what ever the emergency number was back then.

Needless to say all of the fire trucks and ambulances in LYH came to the airport along with reporters, TV, etc. The firemen climbed onto the wing of the aircraft with a hose and was going to squirt water into the engine.

I pleaded, begged and DEMANDED that he not put water into the engine. The fireman said it's smoking and on fire. I told him that it was just kerosene fumes and to please not put water into the engine. I told him that the city of Lynchburg might have to buy the engine if he put water into it.

He finally agreed and climbed down. Later that day, another crew and a mechanic arrived and started the aircraft and flew it to INT.

Capt. Hicks always had a smile and a friendly handshake for everyone. I've handed him his 101 forms many a time. Our good friends are passing.

I flew my first trip with Capt. Hicks in a YS-11 - it was a charter to MYR from INT - I was scared to death of making a mistake but Capt. Hick's cool calm demeanor made the trip great - I was finally flying for Piedmont! I will always remember him and wish his family the good blessings. Ty Lee 15185 emp. #
