In 2015 the Flying Musicians Association created a program whereby band directors nominate a junior or senior band member who excels and has a desire to fly. For information about the 2017 FMA Solo Program, visit our website.

Five outstanding finalists were selected from the nominees in 2015.  Texas, Illinois, Georgia and Florida were well represented. The hardest part was awarding just one scholarship.

In 2016, we have now received double the nominations and thank you to Sky-Tec, and an anonymous donor, we are able to double the awards. Nominations were received from California, Texas, Wisconsin, Michigan, Tennessee, Idaho, New Jersey, and Oklahoma,

The 2016 FMA Solo recipient has been selected. You may view the results here.

In 2017 we continue to see nominations grow, including two from Canada. We look forward to bestowing upon each nomination a FREE student membership. Each will receive a package from us with a FMA shirt, FMA keychain, and other items from our generous sponsors. Nominations were received from: Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Manitoba, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ontario,  Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington.

So far, each winner will receiving a FMA custom flight bag pro, a Sporty’s learn to Fly online course, Gleim Private Pilot Test Prep along with guidance and funds to solo an aircraft.

A HUGE thank you to sponsors of this year’s scholarship.  The scholarship is fully funded by Sky-Tec, the makers of the FLYWEIGHT Starter.  Learn to Fly Courses were donated by Sporty’s Pilot Shop.  A Flight Bag PLC Pro and either an iPad Folio or Sport Case and mount were provided by MYGOFLIGHT.  Promotion and advertising were provided by Aviators Hot Line and Trade-A-Plane.
