Flying Musicians Fleeing the Cold to a Warmer Climate
The Flying Musicians will be charting a course to Sebring, Florida for the annual U. S. Sport Aviation Expo being held January 20-23, 2016 with a special presentation by the FMA Solo Scholarship recipient Drew Medina on Saturday.

“U.S. Sport Aviation Expo is proud to support FMA and the passion they bring to the blending of music with aviation. This nonprofit group offers tremendous enthusiasm and inspiration for the sport of music and flying,” Jana Filip, Expo Director. Music by members and friends of the Flying Musicians Association will grace the skies and the ramp at the Sebring Regional Airport. Visit us daily from 10am until 4pm by the stage in the Show Center Tent, sponsored by Aviators Hot Line, to learn about our organization and our programs; join us for hangar flying and jamming. Bring your lunch and an appreciation for music daily from 11:30 to 1:30.

“We are very excited to have Drew Medina, FMA Solo recipient, speak and perform at noon on Saturday,” - John Zapp. “Students under 18 are invited to attend the Expo on Saturday FREE of charge when accompanied by an adult.” Drew, a member and band captain of the Vero Beach High School Band will fly in from Vero Beach Florida on Saturday. “We hope that all students in the area who are excited about aviation and music will come out to hear this special presentation,” said John. He continued, “With nominations due from band directors by the end of January, we hope to inspire, educate, encourage and assist many more students in the future.” –John Zapp

Do you know a junior or senior in high school band, who has always wanted to learn to fly? It’s time for students, band directors, and parents to hear that the Flying Musicians Association, along with corporate members and sponsors, will sponsor recipients through solo in their flight training. Nominations from band directors are now being accepted. In addition, a FMA member will be there to mentor that student pilot in both aspirations -- in aviation and music. In addition, training material and gear will also be made available when possible.
