Behold, The Flying Musicians Association
With the goals of encouraging, promoting and educating people about their two core interests -- music and flying -- the Flying Musicians Association Inc., has formed "to generate the desire and yearning for both amongst young people." The association, founded by John Zapp and Aileen Hummel, both aviators and musicians themselves, is scheduled for its first Fly-In Musicfest this Nov. 7, at Fort Worth Spinks Airport. They're signing sponsors now. You don't actually have to fly in or be a pilot to attend -- the whole idea is to spread the enthusiasm. "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." Zapp hopes to fly around the country visiting music programs to infuse youngsters with a thrill and fascination of aviation.
Zapp and Hummel hope to gather more sponsors and enthusiasts, both. For more information about Flying Musicians and future gatherings, click here.
