Aviation license plate drive moves forward in Colorado

A bid to collect 3,000 signatures of registered vehicle owners in Colorado to bring a proposal for an aviation license plate to the legislature was close to reaching its goal as of mid-November.

A petition to make a "Support Aviation" license plate available to Colorado residents collected more than 3,000 signatures.

AOPA is supporting the collaborative effort of Colorado aviation groups that have come together as the Support Colorado Aviation Project. The goal is to establish the license plate and raise awareness of “the impact of aviation across the State of Colorado and how aviation impacts a multitude of Colorado industries,” according to the organization’s website.

The group’s website contains an illustration of the aviation license plate created by graphic designer Chris Glaser.

The fee for the plate would be set at $50, which is the standard fee for a special group plate in Colorado, said Warren Hendrickson, AOPA’s Northwest Mountain regional manager. Of that amount, $25 would cover state licensing fees and $25 would go to the Highway User Tax Fund.

A recent status update posted on the project’s website indicated that the petition drive needed 300 more signatures to meet its goal of bringing the license plate request into the legislative process.
