Nevada DMV Offers Airports Association License Plate

Posted: Updated:

From the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles:

A specialty license plate for the Nevada Airports Association (NAA) will be available for purchase at Nevada DMV offices on September 9. The specialty plates will cost an initial $61 and $30 for renewal. The NAA will receive $25 from the initial issuance and $20 from renewals.

NAA is a nonprofit organization comprised of airport executives, airport policymakers and airport supporters whose mission is to promote and sustain the development of all airports in the state. Revenue generated by the sale of the special license plate will fund the Nevada Aviation Trust Fund. This fund provides Nevada's general aviation airports (excluding Clark County and the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority) with a funding source to provide the required five percent local match for FAA's Airport Improvement Program grants, which pay 95 percent of the cost of an airport improvement project.

"The Nevada Airports Association is very pleased with the release of the new "Nevada Airports Association" specialty license plate. This specialty plate is so very important to the 44 rural airports in our state. Because funding from the license sales goes into the Aviation Trust Fund, many of our airports will be able to complete important safety and maintenance projects that were financially not possible without this revenue source. We greatly appreciate the assistance of the DMV staff throughout the process," said Bobbi Thompson, NAA president and manager of the Minden-Tahoe Airport.

There is a cap of 35 specialty license plates that can be active at any time. There are currently 16 organizations on the waiting list for specialty license plates.

"Specialty license plates provide a way for the general population to support these groups and show their support by having the organization's plate on their vehicle," said DMV Director Troy Dillard.
