Be a leader in flight!

Ohioans: Show your pride in Ohio’s aviation heritage and aerospace industry with a “Leader in Flight” license plate!

The Wright Flyer image reminds motorists that Ohio is the Birthplace of Aviation—the state where the Wright brothers lived, invented and perfected the airplane. The space shuttle image reminds us that Ohio continues to be a leader in aviation and aerospace, home to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, NASA’s Glenn Research Center, and major aerospace companies such as GE Aviation.

NAHA Leader in Flight license platePlates are available for your passenger vehicles, non-commercial trucks, recreational vehicles, house vehicles and non-commercial trailers. You can also order personalized plates (up to six characters).

The Leader in Flight license plate program supports NAHA’s efforts to preserve and promote aviation heritage. The state contributes $15 of every registration to NAHA; half of that amount goes to its license plate program partner, Wright “B” Flyer Inc.
