Turtles Fly Too (TTF2) at OshKosh AirVenture

July 23, 2018 — All Day

Hello Turtle Fliers!
Turtles Fly Too (TF2) is planning for our participation in Oshkosh AirVenture 2018 (July 23-29, 2018) and we need your help! This year TF2 will have a table in the Federal Pavilion for the whole week. We hope to introduce many pilots to the program and recruit new Turtle Fliers. Here’s where you can help if you’re interested!

1) If you are attending Oshkosh, please come by and visit us! We would love to meet you in person and have you make the TF2 table your home away from home at AirVenture. Share your story, talk with prospective pilots, and even participate in a seminar. Whatever level of involvement you are interested in, just come by and say hello!

2) Whether or not you are attending Oshkosh, we are looking for stories about your experiences flying turtles. For example, one of our pilots can be described as our Santa Turtle Flier because he flew with 8 tiny turtles on Christmas Eve to deliver them to the good girls and boys in Virginia. Do you have any funny, touching, exciting, or even harrowing tales of flying turtles that you can share? TF2 would like to use these stories on the website and during presentations to give a better feel for the program and to demonstrate what becoming a Turtle Flier feels like.

Visit our website at http://turtlesflytoo.org/ to see our latest information and stories, or forward it along to a friend that you think might be interested in signing up.

I have self funded this mission as much as possible and now I welcome my community to share in the satisfaction of making this project part of your own.   We were given a booth at OSH18 that will be located in the Federal Pavilion.  Its up to TF2 to man the booth for the week plus expenses. 

Thank you all again for your support and generosity! Happy flying. – Turtles Fly Too

Attached is further information.  Anyone interested in our program that was "born in Idaho and part of general aviation" can contact me.  Thank you.
 
Best wishes,
