Flying Musicians team with music directors and flight instructors to offer a scholarship to Learn to Fly.

Are you a high school music student? Do you want to learn to fly? Have your music director/teacher nominate you for the FMA Solo program. In cooperation with FMA’s corporate members and sponsors nationwide, this program will assist juniors and seniors in high school who have been nominated by their music director/teacher.
