The Flying Musicians Association will feature FMA Solo Scholarship recipient Drew Medina on Saturday, Jan. 23, in Sebring, Florida, at the annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, which kicks off Wednesday Jan. 20 and runs through 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,” said Jana Filip, Expo Director.
Music by members and friends of the Flying Musicians Association will fill the skies and the ramp at the Sebring Regional Airport from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily.
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 in Florida, will fly in 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 Zapp, FMA president and co-founder. “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.”
Do you know a junior or senior in high school band, who has always wanted to learn to fly? The association, along with corporate members and sponsors, will sponsor scholarship winners through solo in their flight training.
