About George:

George R. Hicks has been flying radio-controlled airplanes for over 20 years and has been competing in aerobatics since 1994. His love of model airplanes and desire to understand the intricacies of flight resulted in a Bachelors and Masters degree in Aerospace Engineering from Mississippi State University in 1997. During this time George worked at the renowned Raspet Flight Research Laboratory as an engineering research assistant where he was involved with numerous projects such as Honda's all carbon-graphite business jet (UA-5) and Micro UAV development.
Upon leaving Mississippi State George took a position at Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corporation in San Antonio, Texas working as an Aerodynamicist on the SJ30-2 business jet.
While in Texas, George shifted his focus from pattern flying to scale aerobatics. Since this time George has competed in over 30 aerobatic events with more than half of them resulting in first place finishes. George was the 1999 IMAC Sportsman Vice-Champion and the IMAC Advanced National Champion in 2000. George now competes in the in the Unlimited class with his best National placing being 3rd at both the 2002 and 2004 IMAC Nationals. George has also been involved with 3-D flying since 1998 and is most noted for his innovative indoor-electric 3-D designs along with his recent victory at the 2004 E-TOC in Toledo, Ohio. George is currently employed by Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, Georgia where he works in the areas of Aerodynamics, Stability & Control, and Flight Tests.
