The Schuberts, Paul and Sherry

Turtles Fly Too is proud to introduce two of our dedicated Turtle Fliers this month, Paul and Sherry Schubert of Louisberg, NC (LHZ). Paul and Sherry use their Dahler TBM850 for business travel and personal explorations along the NC coast and Outer Banks, from the home of controlled flight at KittyHawk (FFA) to historic Moorehead City (MRH).

Five years ago the Schuberts’ flew their first mission for TF2 and today, they have flown six missions. The most recent was the transport of ‘Quasi,’ a Green sea turtle that was injured by a boat strike and was unable to be released due to long term effects of those injuries. Quasi was flown from his rehab center at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center to St. Louis, MO (STL) to join another injured and rehabilitated Green sea turtle "Tsunami" at an amazing new expansion of the St Louis Aquarium. Turtles Fly Too also flew Tsunami a month earlier to St. Louis.

After their first flight, Sherry was so thrilled, she immediately started donating her time to crochet beautiful stuffed sea turtles and sea creatures that are still being sold on the TF2 website, and she contributes all the proceeds back to TF2!
