Montana Aviation License Plate Still Available

EAA Chapter 517, Inc. of Missoula and Stevensville, Montana established an unique fund raising program in 2006. In cooperation with the State of Montana, Chapter 517 sponsors a specialty vehicle license plate. Each plate that is issued results in a $20.00 fee being returned to Chapter 517 when the license is issued and annually when the license is renewed.

The proceeds from the Fly the Big Sky license plate will be used to help support various ongoing youth and adult aviation education activities throughout Montana. This is a great opportunity for the aviation community to support aviation education in Montana.

EAA Chapter 517 has sample Fly the Big Sky license plates available for resale to license plate collectors for $35.00 each. To purchase a sample plate, please send an email to

or mail a check to
