3,000 Vouchers Needed to Make the Blue Angels License Plate a Reality

Florida drivers can now purchase a voucher in person at any local Tax Collector’s Office

Pensacola, Fla. (Oct. 23, 2020) – The Naval Aviation Museum Foundation needs the community’s help to make the Blue Angels license plate a reality.The Department of Motor Vehicle’s process to establish a new specialty license plate requires the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation to sell 3,000 vouchers before the plate goes into production.

The voucher is redeemable for the plate once the sale requirement has been met and the plates are in production. Purchasing a voucher ensures the plate will go into production as quickly as possible.

Florida drivers can now purchase a voucher in person at a local Tax Collector’s Office or Tag Agency or online at https://bit.ly/3795qmF. The online service is available to all Florida residents residing in any county.

It's not necessary to wait for a vehicle's registration to need renewal to purchase the Blue Angels license plate. For $30, a new plate can be ordered at any time without affecting the vehicle's registration cycle.

As a process to gain public support, the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation is offering numbered Commemorative Challenge Coins to the first 3,000 Floridians who purchase a voucher from the Escambia County Tax Collector’s website. The 1.5” antique bronze coin showcases the Blue Angels crest on the front and the words “I Helped Make History” on the back. This exclusive coin is a way to thank those who helped make the Blue Angels license plate a reality for the State of Florida. 

“This support moves us one step closer to making the Blue Angels license plate becomes a reality for the state of Florida,” said retired Rear Adm. Kyle Cozad, president and CEO of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation. “The ordering process is easy and $25 of each voucher directly supports our Museum’s unique and rare collection of aircraft and exhibits.”
