Sennheiser Aviation has become the newest corporate member of The Flying Musicians Association.
The relationship goes back to the founding of the 501(c)3 organization: Sennheiser’s booth at Oshkosh and other venues for the past couple years has featured live music by the FMA membership.
David Dunlap, Director Sennheiser Aviation, said: “Sennheiser Aviation supports the Flying Musicians Association because we too believe in sharing our passion for aviation and music — two different endeavors that both provide creative outlets to their practitioners, while requiring commitment to excellence and high quality audio performance.”
John Zapp, co-founder of FMA, said, “Sennheiser Aviation has been with us from the beginning. We treasure their support and friendship, and we are absolutely delighted to welcome their support.”
In addition to AirVenture Oshkosh, FMA members provided live music at venues across the country in the past year: Sun ’n Fun, MerleFest, AirVenture, DFW Aviation & Transportation Career Expo, AOPA Aviation Summit, and the pilot career conferences and job fairs put on by FltOps at FTW (Fort Worth), ORD (Chicago), LAX (Los Angeles) and EWR (Newark) and MCO (Orlando).
“Next year, we plan to build on these events, and expand our schedule to more events – both musical and aviation-oriented,” said Zapp. “Sennheiser Aviation’s support goes a long way toward being able to realize that goal.”
The FMA’s first public appearance of 2012 will be staged at the Sebring (FL) Sport Aviation Expo, Jan. 19-22.
