Capt. Willie Dykes Capt. Willie Dykes

William Carlton Dykes Jr. is originally from the Snow Hill area in Worcester County, Md. After graduating from Snow Hill High School, I attended the University of Maryland for two years of pre-veterinary medicine, then left to join the Army. I flew Hueys and Cobras with the First Calvary Division in Vietnam from 1968-70. After the military, I flew commercially in the western U.S., Asia, Alaska, Canada and Central America.

I attended the Maryland State Police Academy and flew for a hospital-based air ambulance in North Carolina. Most recently I was a contract pilot for NASA at Wallops Island, flying fixed and rotary wing aircraft in worldwide remote sensing missions.  From 2005 to 2011, I piloted Chopper 16 for WBOC News.

Willie's wife Rhonda is a retired counselor/family advocate. My daughter Lauren is a marketing manager living in New York, and my son Daniel is a mediation program manager in Baltimore.

 In my spare time, I read, argue, and work on small machines.
