Turbo the Flying Dog is an aviation themed book series based off the real life adventures of author Victoria Neuville's dog. In December 2012 Neuville, a commercial pilot, a flew from her home in Maryland to West Virginia to adopt a puppy from a local rescue. Turbo was the only appropriate name for the pup, who took to flying right from the beginning. Since then, Turbo has logged over 50 hours of flight time, including flying to Canada and the Bahamas! Fans of the Turbo series can follow his real-life adventures on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

He was adopted on New Years Eve of 2012. He is an avid aviator and enjoys taking vacations with his pilot mom, mostly by air in their airplane.
