John Zapp, President/CEO of FMA, said, “The skills required to play an instrument and fly an aircraft have marked similarities, from precision and multitasking to listening and fine motor skills. By educating others about these common attributes, we hope to generate interest, activity and appreciation in both aviation and music. FMA has made great strides over the last 5 years, working hard to establish a foundation for outreach across the country. Consider jumping on the FMA Bandwagon to support us.”
