We conducted our first flight of 2022 on April 30th. Known as Mission 22, it was a great success.
Our second flight of 2022 is scheduled for October 8th. We are in the planning process now so check back for status updates.
Honor Flight license plates
The mission of Collier-Lee Honor Flight is to honor our veterans by flying them to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring their service and countless sacrifices. While COVID may have slowed us down temporarily, we are thrilled to announce that we are making plans for two flights in 2022.
Creating awareness of our program and generating funds with which to continue our mission is critical to those efforts. We are happy to announce that we recently received approval for pre-sale of a Florida Honor Flight license plate. Whether you have already flown with us or will be on an upcoming flight, we wanted to make you aware of this great opportunity to purchase one of these specialty plates.
- Before the plate can be manufactured, we must sell 3,000 vouchers. These vouchers will ultimately be exchanged for the actual plate once manufacturing occurs. (Should we for any reason not reach our required minimum of 3,000 vouchers, you will be able to transfer the funds to other registration/license plate-related expenses.)
- Once we meet the required minimum, you will be contacted with instructions for exchanging your voucher for the Honor Flight plate.
- Specialty plates do incur additional annual charges and the Honor Flight plate will follow this same fee schedule.
- Customizable plates are not yet available but will become an option after the plate is being manufactured regularly.
Follow this link to begin your purchase: https://bit.ly/3Fldyij. Note that it will direct you to Escambia County's Tax Collector site. This is solely for ease of purchase of this specialty plate and has no bearing on the county in which you live. All vouchers are tied to your driver's license number and current license plate. Should you wish to make a purchase as a gift, please know that you will need the recipient's driver's license number and current license plate number.
While you may purchase vouchers for the Honor Flight license plate elsewhere, we recommend the use of this site as it is both less expensive and tied directly to a Florida Tax Collector's Office.
Thank you in advance for considering the purchase of a pre-sale voucher. We are hopeful that one day soon we will all see Honor Flight license plates on vehicles throughout our great state!
