Press Release: The Flying Musicians Association

Recently recieved this press release:

Two Passions, One Goal: the Flying Musicians Association is born.

Fort Worth, Texas – July 1, 2009. The blending of two passions, flying and music, has led to the birth of a new group called Flying Musicians Association, Inc. Founded by two pilot/musicians, John Zapp and Aileen Hummel, the group’s goal is to encourage, promote, educate and support these two passions among those who share them. “I have met several pilots who are also musicians or who share an interest in music. One goal of the Flying Musicians Association is to generate the desire and yearning for both amongst the young people. Often, all a young musician or budding aviator needs is encouragement,” said Mrs. Hummel.

Mr. Zapp added, “Math, science and music: after years of being associated with musicians and aviators I have realized there are many attributes which are shared by both groups. We believe that by flying around the country and visiting music programs we can expose youngsters to the thrill and fascination with aviation. Musicians and aviators alike love to share their passions and that is why we have decided to undertake this venture.”

The first Fly-In Musicfest, organized by the group, is scheduled for November 7, 2009 at Fort Worth Spinks Airport (KFWS), and sponsors are now signing up.

Anyone with an interest in aviation or in any type of music is invited to join the group. Enthusiasts of both music and aviation; teachers and students; and civic groups (including local pilots and musicians) are encouraged to attend the Fly-In Musicfest. One does not have to actually fly in or be a pilot to join, and one does not need to be a member to attend!
